James Brown, of Hucknall in Nottingham, also swept into the Guinness Book of Records for having the Largest Collection of Vacuum Cleaners - a whopping 322 models.
So vast is the eccentric 33-year-old’s collection he has opened his own museum.
Mr Brown’s interest began when he was four.
But he had to wait until he was eight before his parents bought him his first real model.
The majority of his quirky collection is not valuable because the machines are old and common, he said.
But certain machines in the collection are more prized because they are genuinely rare, such as some of his Kirby and Scott & Fetzer machines.
Regardless, Mr Brown said he would never sell his collection and he cannot envisage a day when he would stop collecting.
Yet asked if he would celebrate his achievement by plugging in a few models to suck up some dirt, he said: “I won’t be cleaning. I don’t enjoy house work.”Source
