Thanks for sharing, Samuel! Bide your time, you will find the PN say on Ebay. I found mine there. Be sure and search for wands...I read those one piece plastic wands usually broke probably because they were permanently attached to the PN.

Here's an eBay listing (not mine) for a PN1 with wand for your machine It's got the cord but doesn't seem to have the hose straps.

When I was in grade school and living on a small island in Virginia, I used to ride my bike all over the island. One day I rode by a home where the ELECTROLUX van (a baby blue Ford Econoline) was parked out front. OF COURSE my bike came to a screeching halt and I ran up the sidewalk to the open door. Inside, I saw the Electrolux man, the lovely housewife, her husband, and a tan Model L that her husband had just purchased. When the lady saw me she called out very crossly, "You run on home and mind your own business." Stung by the rebuff I retorted, "That's the cheap economy model!"

great story. I encourage members to share these stories whenever they can. I enjoy reading them. I wonder if I had been bitten by the Vacuum bug earlier I would have hundreds of models by now.

Thanks again.
