Though I have two other 518's I was venturing out to a few estate sales this morning and what do you know, at the first sale I arrived at there was this here 518. Powered it up, sounds like the bearings are good, nice suction, but what did it for me was the hose and a fet attachments that were present, along with the owners manual. For a $10 bill, I figured what is the harm!

Well, after a few hrs work I got it cleaned up allright. The fan had been replaced with a lexan one so I changed it back to metal, also hand washed the bag as it was pretty rough and cleaned the commutator (black). Works like a charm!
