Hello all,
I was in Tulsa a couple weeks ago aat a mini meet and Chad told me of this Airway down there on Let-go.
I bought it of course. It doesn't have any attachments with it and I was wondering about this model. I talked with Tania and she didn't think it had cinnamon attachments but didn't know for sure. Last night I was archiving this and saw a post in Tom's basement clean out there was this model with a matching tool caddy. That tells me the tools must have matched. Also I want to know if this came with the chrome RugMaster or would it have a cinnamon painted power nozzle?

It had an all-chrome power nozzle as well as cinnamon colored attachments and carrier. The very first of these machines were still packed with gold colored attachments but that was soon changed.

Note that machine's design was one of only TWO vacuums ever, that was on wheels and runners at the same time. The other was the Elux LX1.

I wonder if (of course this is cheating haha) but I wonder if a picture of the label could be taken and sent along with measurements so one could reprint a correct label to put on an extra chrome power nozzle?????

I can do that

I promise within a day or two, we have been under a lot of stress lately, Danalds parents are both not doing well and we are in the process of buying a bigger house along with helping with them, but I know where the Airway stuff is so I can get a pic or two taken.
