From the mini meet on saturday here in dfw. it was a freebie too! more about the mini meet in the off topic section. This model 86 was quite dirty when i got it. It was rusty on attachment ends, and had a dent on the top. the paint scratches i didn't mind. it runs like new, upon further investigation, it had been serviced twice, and there's what appears to be a brand new motor inside! i cleaned up the canister and attachments with various products (simple green, mothers, sandpaper, and some steel wool and car wax too). i also pounded the dent mostly out with the ball end of a ballpeen hammer. it's much less noticeable now

it runs great and has a ton more suction than i thought it would!

It must be something strange with constellations, keep following me home too.

Great machines enjoy the best classic designed machines in the world.

If they really are following people home, I hope one wanders my way. Don't have one, but I sure think they'r purty!

thanks for the kind words folks. its a wonderful cleaner. i also was lucky to find the other 2 attachments i was missing when i returned to sean's house to hang out this week. i so lucky it has a new motor inside. it has amazing suction and airflow for such a tiny canister.

How big are they in real life. They always look big in pictures. Is there a machine you could compare it too?

it's about 2-3 inches bigger in diameter than a basketball.

I never would've thought that they would be that small!
