Wonderful find Seamus!!

Really pleased for you - I take it you do intend on keeping it!? Best place a 'do NOT scrap' label on it.

A really superb looking machine - always had a thing for the deep facia, left hand drive, non-plasticised Philips machines.

With a bit of polishing and a brush up, she/it (are Philips machines a 'she' or a 'he'....or are machines just 'it'?) will look fantastic.

All the best with her/his/its restoration.

Hi Seamus.

Its my rampant paranoia about accidental disposals happening.

I keep telling Rob to attach labels to his vacuum cleaners with messages such as 'HANDS OFF!' written on them - just in case someone decides they are going to use an 'exhibit'!


Can never be too strong/emphatic in this sort of situation. Gotta hammer that message home - just to be safe.

Once again - really pleased on the new find and yep, drop me your number.

I would say none of my Hoovers were exhibits lol! All fully working daily driving art pieces restored to a high standard :) well maybe not the now abandoned new Dyson for its proven poor performance over a 24 year old Hoover Turbopower last weekend. Never again will I visit a Dyson owners home and consider them to have clean carpets :) Notes will be considered but I doubt my housemates will do such a deed, im sure Pedro thinks something strange going on with so many Vacs under the stairs so tonight I shall fess all over tea. Cant wait until the weekend either Paul, lets hope we find more classics to add to our collection. Roll on Friday! R

Hi Seamus what a great find. My mother's first machine was a top loading Philips. I would have loved to have seen the drain spin in the front loader version. Must have put a strain on the motor and belt though. My mum's was very stable though. Is this machine very heavy? I take it, it has an 800 spin.

Whenever I see posts from our UK members, it seems spares are a huge issue over there, much more of a problem than we run into here in the States. Is that a correct impression, or am I mistaken?

If it's true, does anyone know why? It seems to me that Britons and Europeans are much more apt to keep things longer than we wasteful Americans would, and that spares should be more readily available, not less.

Which model of Dyson did you have? And in which way was it inferior?
