Tragically, I dropped my DCO3-clear machine whilst giving a lecture on it this week to my design students, which was rather upsetting to say the least.
To be honest, I felt like crying!
As a result the main cleaner head moulding is now very badly cracked across the whole of its front top panel and 2 large pieces of (clear blue) plastic broke also off around the RHS wheel cover too.
I bought the machine new in late 1990s as I was a key member of the Design team at Dyson between 1995 & 1996 and wanted to have one after all the work that went into it. It has never been used and is (well was) in mint condition, even being kept safely in it's original box for well over 20 years now. I also worked on the DC01 and DC02, back in the day too.
Stuart at Manchester Vacs suggested posting here on the forum in case, by any chance, anyone had a spare clear DC03 cleaner head that I might be able to use as a replacement?
Repairing it with a suitable adhesive would never hide the serious injuries it has had and I'd ideally like to return it to its former glory again if at all possible.
I've attached the (now no longer available) eSpares listing of the part that I need - just the main plastic moulding, not the assembly.
Any thoughts or ideas would be most appreciated.
