Well I think I might have a chat with Mvacs in the morning then, I might be able to swing it. Thanks! If you ever need help tracking down a machine or need any particular spares let me know, I am rather close and would be glad to help.

Don't you guys have 220 outlets in the kitchen or utility room someplace for ovens or dryers?

Yes but the plugs are four prong and the size of your hand, doubt they make adapters.

Make your own, your oversized 4 prong (whats the 4th prong for?) plug UK 13 or 16 amp cable and a UK 13 amp socket.
