Another interesting find at a pawnshop. Was 5$ figured Id buy it for the collection. Looks like a 70s vacuum. Looks exactly like a metro duo volt. About the same size too. Same bag any info on this would be great

I remember those being available when I was a kid and I'm old! I want to say early 60's? One giveaway is the address for Tuckahoe does not show a zip code. Zip codes started in 1963.

I got one off of Ebay a while back. I was attracted by the blue attachments. It came in the original box as well.

I think there is another one on Ebay right now.

I have yet to try it out. Thanks for the image of the instructions, not sure mine came with them. I will check it out later. Great to know the bags interchange with Metro Vacs.

Thanks for sharing.

That's true about zip codes. My grandmother was very modern..first color TV, any new kitchen appliance and she had it etc. I can remember her telling us about zip codes and making me use them....she would send me letters even though we lived in the same town. And that would definitely have been around '63.

I have a catalog from around 1963-65 with these in them. Don't know where they are right now or I'd show them

For a second there I thought that circular instruction sheet was a 45 record. In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if they just used the label papers for 45's,
