An all-original 505 WITH the elusive duvetyne bag. At $40. I'd say you pretty well stole it....

What an awesome find. I'm sure if she absolutely makes you sell it. It will go fast, at a small profit on vacuum land !! I know I'll get in line for it
Just let me know !!

I'm hoping to pick it up tomorrow - I've only seen the picture she emailed. I don't think it has any attachments, but, she says it does have the original owners manual and that it runs perfectly.

Not a bad find at all! Careful on how you word your emails. She may get the impression its worth more than that. Thats what happened with a guy I knew who had a C series machine, in original box almost unused. He wanted $20. He called a vac shop and they said they wouldn't buy it because they cant sell it but it was uncommon. So now he wants thousands and thousands for it. Go figure.

Enjoy it! You dont see many of them anymore.

This would perform better with a 10-blade metal fan (#1189).
