like this. It is "nervewracking, to say the least.They all know, if I had a family living here, we wouldn't be able to stay in it.

Once the renovations are finished you can open the house as a museum... but you'll need to move to another house. But it would be worth it. I just love your collection.

Fabulous, John! I can't believe that you have a Model 475 with a lazy front bumper, too. It MUST'VE been some kind of a rubber defect. I like that polisher, too. I think they were called "Guardian"?

re: The polisher

I just waxed the flooring in my flat, and afterward tried removing the brushes to clean them. I forgot how much of a pain this can be on these machines. Oh! Could they have come up with a more frustrating mechanism than that spring loaded ball bearing, that requires about 3 sets of hands to pry loose once its corroded?
That is the only major downside to this model for me. I have several, and they have all been die-hard performers for years. How cool is it to have a floor polisher with a light on the front?

a switch in the handle.. just like the vacuum.Nobody thought about how potentially dangerous that could have been. Built like a tank, though.
