Red Velour Strip
« on: May 05, 2011, 11:13:27 AM »
Does anyone know if it's possible to buy the red velour material for use on the Dyson tools? As far as I know Dyson don't sell the strips so looking for other sources where I could get the material from and maybe cut to size etc.

My searches have proven fruitless so was hoping someone else may be able to point me in the right direction for something suitable

:grinn:

I would like to know this as well. We too have been unable to find any anywhere. I have heard rumours about its availability, but never seen it anywhere.

Any casual readers: If you know about this, do chime in.

Maybe our pal in South Africa here on the forum will know, he likes to save a couple of bob where he can..........

I never saw it. They once told me they used to do it but don't any more. Do you have a part number? Or know what they call it? I can harass the owners son then.  ;)

Edit: I have access to their live system, I just checked, and I don't see it there. They don't even sell silver two core flex any more by the roll.

I've been doing some more Googling and so far the best I have found is 2x strips for 1.95 but it's the same cost again for P&P. Not very cost effective when you only buy a couple but when you spend a certain amount it's free P&P.

Still cheaper than replacing the tools I guess but finding a roll of it is going to be by far the best bet!

1.95 P&P?  :o

Maybe he buys special second class stamps that are four times the price than the ones we buy.  :))

I'll do you a good deal on stair tools if you wanted 25 or 50. Just something to bear in mind.

These can be found in lint removing tools for your coats etc but I think Gareth can supply a roll of it though
Just cut and super glue them ;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.

Would it be a good idea by the way to glue these underneath soleplates or is it not necessary
