Just wondering.
Why did you bypass the supressor? what exactly does that so?

Its an epic job, I had a go around the floor with it and it runs like a dream!  :bow:

Many have admired it in the corner of our shop where it now resides.  :icon_nod:

Thanks. It helped that it was a good one to start with! It (and the 652 before it) are the ultimate wafty vacuum. Over-engineered, low stressed motor. Should be good for another 100 years now, might need a bag or belt before then though

Couldn't quite let it go out the door like that though, so I spent many hours cleaning the hose up

Until eventually I had a toolkit fit for display

With some tape, the box stayed together too

And boy, do they complete the machine!

So there we go, NOW we are finished! Time for an after video

Hopefully Stu can post some pictures up of it in it's new home, I think some might be up in the museum thread actually.

Still, onto the next terrible vacuum he has sent me for a wipe over!

Thanks for reading, good night!

So are we done now? Well no! You see,  Mr Stuart has said to me before that he would love a toolkit with one of these old wrecks one day. And I just so happened to know someone selling some. So, in early september, I unboxed all of this!

ila_rendered

Not all of it was mine, 1 senior toolkit and a dustette was for someone else who happens to live very near me, so I saved him some postage, but I ended up with 3 toolkits, two for my own machines, and one for Mr Stuart!

ila_rendered

I gave him the boxed one, as it's probably easier for him to store

ila_rendered

it had a floor and wall brush

A Crevice tool



Dusting Brush

2 wands

and a hose and adapter

But did it work?

Yep!

So it was time for a few layers of wax

And with some precise tweaking, got the handle bolt to hold the handle rock solid

ila_rendered

A slight tangent here to the mains plug. And whilst doing all this, I realised that the plug was possibly original... So polished the pins up with the rest of the metalwork



re-wired more tidily than it was before

ila_rendered

Much better!

ila_rendered

And with that done, and the top handle attached, it's finished!
