Wow! That's an awful lot! That must be every model right? Did you organize them chronologically?

Looks great Hans. So glad they now have a very nice 'forever home' where they can be on display.

Over 20 years ago. Look closer. The box next to the 30 box is the E in its original box

Re dis arrange them slightly as I go, on the back side of the Eluxes, I plan to put the rest of my tank machines,by brand of course, Hoovers, GEs, Westinghouses, Cadillacs, a few Kenmores, Kingstons,,,,,The canisters will go on the narrower shelves, when thru I hope to be able to find everything!

You should put up some pegboard or build some rotating racks for bags. I made my own rotating rack and keep all sorts of bags and belts on it. Of course it only scrstches the surface of my supply...

Yes ,,,But im only getting started!

I moved 2 pickup truck loads of tank machines tonight, im 3/4 thru with tanks, tomorrow I will finish them up and start on canisters, there are probably 150 canisters and I would say I have already moved close to 200 tanks, there were about 60 Electroluxes,,,all the uprights are in the workshop building with the mixers, 310 stand mixers, and I didn't count the portables and blenders,,,lol

Re Bags,

I have probably 5 or six of the biggest totes full, I need to do just as you suggested, pegboard is a great idea!

I wish mine were that organized. I don't have room for shelves.

I love those Apex's, do you have any upright Apex's.

All the Tanks are now put up, Im going to try to move all the canisters tomorrow, Morgan, I have only one Apex upright and its a Wizard from Western Auto, one of the tanks is also, I will have so much more room now! and a good work area, a place for a sink etc!

Very nice display Hans!!! I hope to acquire this level of space someday to properly display my machines! BTW....would you happen to have an extra non-electric fabric hose to match a Super J or Golden Jubilee ( Tan with teal and gold tracers ) Keith

Ki Kiether

No, I don't have ANY hose original to a Super J or Jubilee, those did not hold up well at all, I remember them though.
