Mods please keep thread in this forum.
The person who sold me the American Lincoln has a janitronic super sweeper. He sold the one to me as he didn't need to. He asked if I came across a comvac let him know.
I know people here have comvacs. So I'm asking for him. Is there anyone with a comvac and how much would you want for it.
Email me pm me or get in touch if you would.

I'm working on putting my 245 together. I think I have it wired correctly. There is 2 screws I can't seem to catch threads. It screws in motor housing on carbon brush inlet.
The bearing plate has a oiling spout for bearing in bearing plate. It's rather genius. It's close everything is clean and vacuum with copper petina will be cool looking. I'm debating either paint entire handle with paint or strip to metal primer and paint it. If I did that I'd use wire brush through inside of handle clearing any rust away.
I know it will run strong.
The more I work on royals the better I get. I may get my 880 early 90s blue 7.0 p my burgundy 6.0 amp anniversary edition. Polish all of them up. Ill try to get close to perfection on 880. It was made month and year I was born. I would sale the one I just bought. Having the one I bought from Larry as benchmark done by Chicago Mike. I can see how well my vacuum skills compare to perfection.
I just like to run things by you since you are the royal expert. Thanks again for all replied and info it's great. If you need any tradition parts or vacuum items let me know. I probably won't charge. I have more than my fair share of items.
Merrier Christmas and Happier New Year.
