All the signs were there...
1 lone filthy ebay picture
Massive extension currently being built on the house
People too naive for their own good
Still, for £13.50 I found myself owning a DC08 Turbobrush, without the turbobrush
Still had the promo book attached, although it's a bit tatty. Cut it off and added it to my paperwork collection!
Never used. Mateys wife came down the stairs beforeI left and handed them to me, the whole cassette had not been fitted
I checked the filters
They'd clogged it to so quickly the filter wasn't dirty!
However, with the cyclone attached it instantly pings the release valve open. And blows out a metric ton of dust
So I stripped it down
Every single one of these was blocked either this side or the other!
Couldn't be doing with that, and after stripping it down it would have been a waste of time re-assembling it to see if it works, so I ran it through the wash
Dyson and Hoover share drying space by the rad!
Then I turned around
Well, may as well!
These were a buggar to get out
What's this little clear tube for?
Needless to say, everything is now washed, the motor is spotless and is currently letting a few drops of oil soak into the top bearing. Then,when it;s dry it can all go back together and I can use it for the first time!
