Who knows Hoover juniors then ?
« on: November 16, 2015, 12:12:18 AM »
Never had one before then I saw bekos Union Jack one and thought it was cool.

Anyway this evening I had a phone call from the man that runs a dyson graveyard near me and he picked this one up in good working order from a clearance and asked if I wanted it FOC. So I snapped it up.

Only trouble is I have no idea what model it is age or serial number

Any help would be appreciated

Oooh very nice.  I know they can be dated using the service books,  and I think I know someone with the books.  It looks early though,  the bag certainly.

The ratings plate should be under the belt guard at the front on a rivited plate.  Post the serial up and Ill message the guy I know.

Can't you download the service books from vacuumland quite cheaply ?.

Never tried. Why pay when someone messaged me recently boasting that he had them (lucky buggar) and that he would scan them in for me! Could do with a look tbh as I want to date my union jack one. I'm sure I had a copy, but cant seem to find it.

ETA, I do have a Junior service book scan, but not sure it's complete, cant find any date details. I know it can be done though, I;ve seen it!

Gives a timeline, looks like yours came in in 1962 and was updated in 1965.

I should probably get on with some work now!
