Title: What's the funniest/weirdest thing you've found in a Dyson?
Post by: __russ__ on January 23, 2013, 11:42:59 AM
I detached the hose from a DC07 yesterday and out of the bottom fell a stainless steel whisk!

Bit different from the usual coins, pens etc.

Any other strange ones?

Well I will give you a hint to the most interesting thing I found in a dyson, It was in a dc23 , It was ink, vibrated and said rampant Rabbit on it.  :evilgrin0002:

The lady turned an interesting shade of red when I handed it back to her. I put it in a brown paper bag and told her to only look what it was when she was at home but she didn't listen :evilgrin0002:

3 Dyson Dc07 All floors from the carboot sale, crap suction. Off to refurb it and when I took the U- bend off, there was a key ring with a good handful of double glazing door keys!

Went to collect Dc14  a few months back. When I got to the house Their was allot of renovation going on. As the owner gave me the unit ( still under it warranty This model sold for a long time in SA  ) I cautioned her that they should not use it to suck up any of the building material as this could void the guarantee( this happens allot in SA. Builders are famous for using your vacuum for cleaning up  after themselves . She said to me rather sternly that in no way has this vacuum ever been used for vacuuming up any of the mess created by the renovations ( to her rather fancy estate home )
I had a hunch so I took off the back hose and out poured ( infront of her ) 4 X8mm coach screws and what seamed like a never ending supply of industrial staples and nails. AAAH theirs your problem mam I said . She was gobsmacked

I love doing that with plaster dust, just an innocent 'Had any DIY work done recently' when I hand it back after a refurb... "Oh yes, we did have the front room done 7 months ago". There's your issue then love
