Hey, Hooverettes!
I picked up a blue Numatic Henry for 7 today at a car boot sale! The man wanted 10 but I got it down to 7 :) It didn't come with any attachments but he works and has scrubbed up nicely! What a nice birthday present :D The Henry is from around 1990, which is weird as both my Cream and Brown henry and my David are from around that time :)

Pics to follow

The blue Henry is the one that's been left out in the garage and has died of frostbite... :P

It's funny you should mention that actually, my mum and dad asked when I brought it home "Is that the cold model?" It's one of my dream machines though. I'm really into Numatic machines and this particular one is one that I've drooled over since infancy! Just the more paler looking blue with block writing on the hat to match it has always done something for me. I've been using the attachments from his Cream and Brown brother however I need to get a new set really. Ebay's got some genuine Numatic Toolkits (Hose included) for like 13 which I suppose is quite good considering the quality of the equipment! I think my favourite thing about collecting Numatic machines is that they were virtually never advertised and there hasn't been much written about them either, so you never know just what you're gunna get! I, to this day, continue to discover new machines of there's that have been long forgotten about. Whereas with machines like say Hoover or Electrolux, regardless of how great they are, they have all been well documented either by their companies or by collectors. Which is a bit of a fun spoiler really ;)
