Two Hoover Juniors: One for sale, One I need a bit for.
« on: March 22, 2016, 06:50:10 PM »
So I acquired these two the other day.



I haven't looked at either of them beyond what you see.

The one on the left I'll take a bid on. What are they worth?

This one I need a front cover for.



I might mint that one up for the museum area. Anyone got a decent brown cover?

If the one on the left is worth nowt, I might "remanufacture" it - loads of new bits, powder coated bits, rewired and earthed, etc. Make it look brand new and bung it on the shop floor. I am sure they still have a following........

I picked up a Pumpkin one for 99p the other day!

One on the left has a pattern bag, but lots of spares should you want to start breaking and selling parts...

One on the right looks nice. Don't think I have a brown one, got a Pumpkin cover with no Hoover roundel in the shed I think. Ebay/the 'special' area at Q/Autovac? Looks very very VERY faded though, have you ever heard of Retrobright?

No? We normally use G3.

Can the Hoover roundels be obtained anywhere? If so, I can get an after-market brown one with no badge.

Is there a 'special area' at Autovac?

I happen to have a load of Hoover self adhesive roundels that I bought off an old engineer years ago. I'll offer one up to mine and see if it's the same size and post you a few over if so.

I've known Dilys to have some old stuff kicking about, you never know! Failing that, paint up another one with plastic paint?

I've just ordered the brown one new. So a roundel would be much appreciated.  :icon_nod:

The Brown one has seen a Hoover Service centre too, can you read which one or is the label too faded?

I think Q still have motor and agitator bearings for these too. Full set of those, and a new belt and brush strips will have her Beating, as it Sweeps as it Cleans again!
