Here from the same Estate Sale is a Hoover Junior. This machine is nearly mint, save for a few scratches on the base, near the belt port.

I really think this color is stunning, and it makes me feel less bad that I got rid of the one that I had with the 707 print bag.

Anyhow, enjoy these too!

Look at that brush roll. It will get a new belt tomorrow, when I can see my supplies easily

Interesting that the model plate is still attached, most of these are gone.

Lovely model there Dennis, and it looks MINT like its never been used, as we can see made, we had many colours over the years but never the psychadelic patterns!!!

A few UK collectors met up at Alistairs (Vacbear) house in London and brought together many of the styles and models produced for Hoover 100th anniversary.

Don't forget to show what's "Under the hood", the wiring can be a tad iffy on Juniors, especially if made here in the UK... :P

It's funny how the US models kept the spring on the bag, where the UK models (and I presume other exported models) had the hanger thing sticking out the side of the handle, but then, that handle assembly looks a bit longer than the UK model, more like the Senior/Convertible handles... :\

Handle assembly

Thanks for posting the pictures Mike, there are a few more Juniors in my collection now (not all those pictured are mine), but good memories of a lovely weekend. Over three years since that picture was taken, and mindful of the wonderful 60th anniversary celebration of Merythr ay just about this time in 2008 in Chester.

Back on topic, I would have said that WAS the convertable handle assembly - just look where the spring is attached, but the cable hooks are on the wrong side for a convertable. Lovely machine by the way, does it have the top fill bag as well?

Dennis, that is one beautiful Hoover Junior!!  What a great find.  The few that I have seen here over the years always seem to have bags that are in sad shape.  Mike, thanks for sharing those pictures, WOW what a collection.

Could be a Senior handle then, my 652A has the cable hooks on that side, although it has a spring-loaded doodad to hold up the bag rather than a long spring, I don't know about later senior handles being any different though... :\

Can't help but noticed one of the juniors in that collection (the U1104 like what I had) having a plug fitted that are notorious for being too weak and the user pulling the cap off when trying to unplug it from a tight socket... :S

The machine seems to have a handle made just for it. I am wondering if just the head of the machine was produced in the UK and the rest of it was manufacured here. The wiring, which I will take a picure of, is in very good shape. The machine sounds as though it just came from over the pond yesterday!

I miss the fact that the machine does not have a handle grip, something these machines did not see.

The machine is a Type C bottom fill machine with the typical fill tube. Funny that this machine does not have the UK style fill tube with the adapter that can make it "blow" from the fill tube.

How I wish I had some of those genuine "C" type bags you guys have in the UK. They are smaller and look like a grocery sack.

Stay tuned for some pictures.

Thanks Terry for the compliment on the machine!

"They are smaller and look like a grocery sack."

Funny you mention that, I have actually used a couple of my Generics like that, not for shopping though, but for putting bits and pieces in them to store them in a box without them spilling out... :P

Not sure about the H1 bags being smaller, they're pretty wide in comparison to pictures of C bags, they just look like they've been folded and glued differently to me... :\

Junior Question

How do these things come apart? Seems that they are all screwed and glued. I wanted to take the hood off and fix the two imperfections however I was afraid I would break the machine, as the hood is part of the brush roll housing and the motor has no easy way to take it apart....

I have two of that Model

1025 both are brand new , one I assembled but never used and one that I left in the box. I love the juinors I wish they were more popular here in the US but it seems like we only had a few models nothing like the lucky Europeans .

Going from memory, to take it apart, you first need to remove the rear wheels, the handle hinge, the motor (which is a task in itself, 4 screws, two easily accessed, two hidden on the opposite side needing a long reach screwdriver) and wiring, the front axle, the exhaust tube that runs from the fancase to the bag, then a screw that holds the metal nozzle plate in place, and as for the glue, it'll be pretty brittle by now so should break off easily if you wiggle it about, unless it's the rubbery stuff which you just have to apply brute force and pull hard until it separates... :S

The plastic is pretty tough stuff (surprisingly), so it'll take some abuse before it'll break, my 1346 took a lot of abuse in this manner to dismantle it, but I wasn't being too careful as some muppet had repainted it with beige household paint, which is why I was stripping it to repaint it (which turned out to be completely rubbish anyway!!)... :S
