Hi guys
I have recently purchased a Hoover 638 and was wondering if any of you know where I might get a set of tools for it.

Oh and by the way I am in the United Kingdom

I would be very gratful for any information I receive

Kindest regards

Congratulations David, that looks to be in very good condition.  The cleaning tools show up on ebay occasionally here in the US, (assuming they would fit)  and I've seen them in Canada and the UK as well.   There might even be another member here who has some spares stashed away for sale or trade.

Thank you Neil,
I will keep a look out for them on Ebay

Also, the white lettering on the top "HOOVER" has started to wear out with age, does anyone have any idea what I could use to re-whiten them?

white lettering

Some white acrylic paint, a thin artist's paintbrush and a steady hand should do the trick.

Hoover 638

Very nice find, David. This series is among my favorite and they are nearly bullet-proof! Enjoy it.

Hi Rick

Thanks for the comments, I intend to look after and I intend to treat her to some tools if only I could find some. will be keeping a close eye on Ebay but here in the UK it's very rare they appear on their site.

I live in hope though
