So, I picked up another bargain of a Lux from The Land of Ebay, for 3.40, almost complete with tool kit. The only thing missing from the tool kit was its extension wand.

Only thing that was needed was new bearings for the brushroll and the usual ~ Strip, wash, clean and plenty of TLC!

Before pictures as usual then afters.

The screw for the filter was loose so might as well remove it now.

Sole plate removed. Surprisingly, the brush strips look new and the belt looks almost new and is genuine.

Motor ~

vacuumlover's profile picture
Motor stripped as much as it possibly can. Unfortunately Electrolux crimps the fans together thus not being able to remove them. The carbon brushes have plenty of life left in them.

Also, the bearings are a little dry.

Some sun damage and a weird large patch of heavy scratches and dirt. Both had to be lightly sanded back and then covered with T-Cut scratch remover.

Unfortunately, the royal appointment has worn slightly.

It says - "By appointment to her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth the II, suppliers of suction cleaners and floor polishers, Electrolux Ltd, Luton Beds."

I love the 1070's! They were Electrolux's budget cleaner throughout the early 90's, but were better than both the Glider and Contour than ran above it. This model was actually brought back due to large sales of backstock z1055 and z1065's and ran right up until about 1995. They were a bargain too at only 49.99 towards the end of the run.

Here is my one manufactured right here in Cape Town

I loved these, I had a contour downstairs and one of these upstairs in our in apartment in those days.
They came in This beige colour and red here. In my office was a grey one that stood to one side all sad. It never made it into production. I wish I had kept it
