Title: Hello from Waco Texas!
Post by: taran57 on December 04, 2016, 07:26:46 AM
I decided to join after being a visitor for a few weeks;
I am fairly new to vacuums and in particular Dysons, when I was a kid and living back in Australia I remember the DC04 Absolute my aunt had and thinking how cool it was, I even borrowed it ten years later when my hoover broke down.

I just recently got back into vacs after giving life support to the DC17 at work, I now own a DC07, DC15 and DC16. Hoover connie, spirit and celebrity. My current project is a Fantom Thunder which was in an appauling shape.

I hope to contribute and get on here.

Thank you, Will.

Welcome Will, interesting collection of machines you have there. We also have a Fantom here in the UK; a Fury. And an imported DC17.

I have read the posts, the Thunder is the model before the Fury, and much like the DC01.

Welcome to the forum!

I never really expected to see someone this geographically close to me on here.

Had some luck at the flea market, donor machine for the Fantom complete with on board tools and an unbroken sole plate   :thumbsup:

Fired it up and the machine belched white plaster dust over everything in the room! (No filter fitted) :o :(
