the collection and thinning it down!!!
« on: November 11, 2015, 11:48:43 PM »
Evening guys. Once upon a time i had 2 varients of dc01 3 dc04s 3 dc07s a dc08 a dc11 and a dc33. I have thinned it out to a dc01 de stijl, dc07 clic and a dc25 all floors. Aswell as 2 numatics and a miele. What other dysons have you collectors got? Currently got a dc14 origin with mini turbine head and full tool set with new motor for sale and a dc08 hepa if anyone is interested. Share some pictures here of your dyson collection would be great to see them.

Dc04 silver lime

DC05 motorhead, physically broken

DC14 animal (blown up, needs a new wand, hose, chassis, brushbar & post filter)

DC25 All floors

DC41 animal

and hopefully a DC24 Animal in a few days ;D
DC14s are tanks, just need a slightly longer motor life. Do plastic parts often break on DC14s? Nope. DC41- Sexy looking futuristic and powerful machine. Just needs a better designed cleaner head wheel and cyclone clip along with a dense metal rod in the chassis.

The brushroll caused delay, but sorted now. Just a few bits and touching up really. It will be done when we have a spare hour or two.

2x Fantoms arrived today as well.

I got mine out a few weeks ago now, remembered just now I haven't put any pictures up











The DC01s



And everything!



The DC03 Clear is now with Mvacs, and the DC03 Absolute+ is mid refurb. The DC18, 05 and DC50 are yet to be started (DC50 will be a while as it needs worth of parts! DC05 needs a new wand/wand fixing kit too.)

I just need the 2 blue DC01s and I will have the basic set, then I can start with the different sticker combo's there were  :underchair:

I've been after a Fantom for ages, only in USA they appear to be, couldn't find any here and I ain't gonna import another one lol.

Also, what is the attraction to the older Dysons?

I do have a spare one. Not the best, but it is still available. It didn't attract any bids on eBay the first time; just heaps of watchers. I was going to relist it today.

Ahh yeah I saw it and it really tickled my fancy but I thought 15 was a bit much for postage for me at the moment... I had no idea it was you though haha!
