Amtek 7/97 today
« on: November 17, 2020, 08:23:27 PM »
Did I find you or did you find me ?  :tiphat:
Dunno...some year ago I looked for info after having bought my first DC01 and bought some spares from MVacs
Before that I bought a DC08 new in 2003, it being the first mainstream Dyson being sold widely in Holland. still have this heir and 5 other DC08 as spares...
Collected at random 2 DC01ís, a DC04 and a DC07, the uprights that are partially still in daily use in this carpeted house. A DC26 was added too.
The reason for window dressing this profile is the arrival of a brand new Amtek DC01 motor today. Dated 07/97.  ĎNice to haveí for just in case..
Thatís all... :underchair:

Welcome.  :tiphat:

Where did you find a new Ametek motor?

You know some of the DC01s had a different motor in?

Thanks, feel at home already !  :thumbsup:
how can you not now?
I read most there is to read on all forums old and new, so yes I also know there is an YDK.
The 2 early DC01 I bought in NL from people who lived in UK or and brought them with them to NL
Which proper Brit wants to live in Holland anyway ? ;D
The motor I bought off a Belgium lady whoís deceased husband never made it to repair de DC01 . The DC01 went into the skip, the motor was kept and put on a local Belgium sales site.
Since I am into Italian stuff on 4 wheels too, I love the idea the Dyson got an Italian heart pumping just air...
Wanted to post some pics yesterday but failed due to size limitations and itís ages since I posted on forums like this a was able to shrink jpeg files....

I used to spend a lot of time in Holland. Mostly in Scheveningen and Den Haag (like shopping on the Noordeinde) but Delft and other places too.  :icon_nod:

Well if you spent  all this time in Holland you Will have no difficulty spelling and pronouncing De Stijl in the correct way  :thumbsup:
The colorscheme of these Dyson have got little to do with the Art moviment btw.. :reading:
They are rare and funky but i wouldnot buy one because of it being pleasing to the eye  ;D
The Hague is stil our Court City with a good mix of upmarket shops and facilities..
Hopefully we can travel again like we used to next year...fingers crossed
