If I pinch the inner cyclone screws to replace rusty motor housing ones (usually underneath where the machines been stored badly before bought for spares by me) I don't replace them! I've seen pictures before, cant remember where) of an 07 cyclone cut in half and it's fully glued/sonic welded up in there! The screws must be from assembly, and it's cheaper in labour to just not remove them.
Well screw me down to the floor with some rusty old Torx screws
Hey Sam, sorry that I misunderstood your intentions and second guessed (wrongly) your after use of rusty screws.
Viewers pleased be advised that Sam does NOT use rusty screws on his refurbs. That should set the matter to rights Sam
Cannot resist another comment on these inner screws that no longer serve a purpose and are just there full stop. Surely these same screws would be of no value to remove or repurpose anyway IF they have been dipped and exposed to a water bath cyclone clean out as they would more than likely be rusty. Steel plus water equals rusty steel. Just saying.
