Screwed together its not too bad tbh, apart though, and yes some of it is properly flimsy!

They followed me too! Miele did it the other day after my random tweet too.

Hopefully the realise the good work we do, and if they fancy throwing me something out of their heritage collection to refurb, I'm all ears!

(joking, vax won't have a heritage collection sadly)

Tweet out my 121 refurb thread, that's a good one!

Also as the forum here gets larger, older and more entrenched in Google, it shows up on more and more searches.

All the manufacturers snoop on social media and take note of the kind of stuff said about them in places like this.

Like the Yeti, occasionally you spot them.

Well here is to hoping that Dyson sends me a broken DC17 to fix up and photograph with the express purpose of having Tayyab throw a temper tantrum.

Screw off

And how did you know my name? :P
DC14s are tanks, just need a slightly longer motor life. Do plastic parts often break on DC14s? Nope. DC41- Sexy looking futuristic and powerful machine. Just needs a better designed cleaner head wheel and cyclone clip along with a dense metal rod in the chassis.

I have spent hours googling you, profiling you and studying you.  I have photos of you.  Some you wouldn't be happy to know they were out there.  Big brother has spent years building a dossier on you and then forgot to secure it.  Be wary, little Tayyab. 


Or perhaps someone referred to you by name on this forum.
