A Miele B855 ironer not sure of the age but it must be getting on....

First pic shows it in original state and then after I made a new cover for the roller.

Have mastered shirts and flat items including fitted sheets just need more practice to get it all completed whilst sitting :)

Have wanted a decent ironer for years but never able to afford one till now.

Congrats! Those are workhorses and there's very little to go wrong with them!

To change roller cover:

From our German friends:

Miele no longer sells non fold down ironers for domestic use, but their commercial/professional is another matter.

Though a bit different than yours, still plenty of good tips here to get you sorted.
