Dear friends, a few years ago I bought for a ridiculous sum of money this scary old Nilfisk vacuum cleaner, in such poor conditions, so i placed it somewhere in my house of vacs and almost forgot about it! Now it's time to give it a SPA treatment and give it kind of a more appropriate look! Something tells me that it's going to be quite a hard work... Any tips? Greetings from italy , tommy

Looks like a mechanical tombstone or perhaps an automotive transmission! Good luck, I'm sure parts will be very rare.

This looks like..

Another European vac called a Tellus.

Thats because it is - at various times Nilfisk have been known as Tellus, I have one of these and I am not at all sure that it is not branded as Tellus.

It actually looks somewhat like an old-fashioned milk pan

I nabbed these instruction manual pictures from ebay a while back

I was just browsing on google, and I came across this. The first vacuum shown is the Tellus, and it has some pictures and an advertisement.
