I looked in the archive and seen you posted about your compact interstate c9. You have an owners manual for it.
I was hoping you could scan take pics or something so that myself and compactguy9 could benefit from this. I would be willing to give you a little money for your time. I did email you but no response.
If anyone reads this and knows him please get his attention to this thread. I do thank you in advance for this.

Yes SMOW69 or anyone else has it let us know. If someone had color pics I could get printed and spiral bound. I may look into calling vac muedrum in Missouri or the one in North West Oregon I believe.

If no one posted any literature or pics of the manual the first time you asked then its pretty likely that... People don't have time to post pics or scan copies or they don't have a manual or any literature for that machine.
No offense but to keep bumping the thread to the top is rather annoying as there are other topics of discussion that are actually topics, not saying that yours isn't a topic but it hasn't been responded to probably for the reasons stated above so if someone has something they will gladly respond.

I also think that we all are very well aware that you absolutely LOVE your awesome compact C9.

Happy vacuuming and happy holidays! :-)

Thanks for the bump much appreciated. Nobody else is posting anything on the board lately. I'm sorry it annoys you but if he logs in he can see it. He could take pics instead of scan I even offered money for their time. It will stop in a couple days. If they don't answer. We have not had any contact. So thanks for bump in the thread.

I don't think I was bumping the thread considering it was already on top, not to mention I don't think i'm the only one who it annoys as I am speaking for multiple people. If Shane hasn't replied within the last 2 days then its possible that he doesn't sit on the computer all day reading vacuum cleaner forums.
just sayin'

That was rude and dis-respectful of another member of VL! I suggest you re-read the rules of this form about being respectful of other posters.
On this topic, I as the other poster said you show a lack of respect for others in your constant appeals for others to help you find the right part or--manual. Ask once and leave it alone. You might wait more than 24 hours before asking again---maybe a couple of weeks! If no one replies, leave it alone! Constant badgering gets you nowhere!
If you and Les want to have more conversations about your quests, why don't you both use the Email function of your upgraded memberships and go private!

ON a personal note, can you please also respect your fellow members and type correctly and use the posting preview function to proof your posting. Your posts are sort of a personal "'shorthand" are not always readable to others.

Thank you

Greg Bushman

This posting is my idea lay off him. I insist on being persistent. I have reached out to him via email. He hasn't been on in a while. It's a forum to post. You don't have read the thread. No need to poke fun of other people isn't necessary. Everyone is different. I do appreciate you positing your thoughts in public. Criticism of people is against the rules.
He is not being post padding. I do it so if and when he posts he will see it. When I posted yesterday I was last poster on almost every thread I posted on. I'll contact museum in appropriate time. It's not a crime to ask for assistance. I have no problem paying for service. I have learned you have to be persistent sometimes in life. I searched forums and looked on internet.
Antoine posted a little while ago on a old thread. I'm not the best at punctuation and sentence structure. I have tried the better lately.
So in short don't belittle anyone we're above that. I'm quite aware he doesn't post here every day. Hence the posting pooping it to the top on off chance he didn't get requests. Antoine is very helpful and I have been helped by him. If the moderators of the board have an issue they will address it. If you wish y'all out some one call me out. I contacted Stark museum and Tacony museum as others have mentioned to do. I thank you for your concerns.

We all know what harassment is. It's one thead in one foorum. If we blew up the board would be unprofessional. People are good or bad. There is nothing else to judge. I do really appreciate you bringing your opinion to this thread. Judge by content of someones character. Other points dually noted. It's going to be me calling museum and talking to Tom and going that route.
I love manuals for vacuums. It is like explaining to someone you love vacuums.
Cheers to all and have a safe and prosperous New year.

Hey thanks for the update. I'm not surprised by the comments of by timing. It's about par for the course .

To clarify...

hmc1981's profile picture
Fairfax88 was not directing his comment towards Lesinutah or Compactc9guy, rather he was upset over the way you both were being treated for simply expressing interest in a vacuum related topic on a website meant for vacuum collectors.

Additionally, as far as membership goes, I think he meant no longer being a paid member, not that he wants to abandon the site entirely. Different perspectives sometimes need clarification. You have at least two allies.

No biggie. Iíve misread several things - Iím guilty as charged! Lol!

Just felt it important for you both to know the intent of that post, as I am very privy to its origin.

Iíll keep an eye out for what you are seeking, if I ever run across anything, Iíll certainly share it with you.

Take care!

I have been here a while. I wasn't sure what he meant. I'm not surprised by fellow members actions. I did get stirred up about nothing the other night.
Thanks for translation or interpretation. It's been very unproductive. I do wish you well with your lewyt. I have heard there awesome. Hopefully the new hose brings the vintage beast out.
Keep on keeping on. I just like to say that even though it's of Talladega nights. But keep on vacuuming.

I asked around and have a friend who might have a manual to either a C9 or a C8 and I would be more than happy to snag photos of it and post them here for you. I wasnít trying to be rude however was expressing that continuously bumping a thread in order to obtain something is a little annoying thatís all.

Now my friend has to take some time and dig around for it but itís a good possibility that there is indeed a manual. So be a little patient, I might be able to get some photos on it within the next couple of weeks.

Happy New Year and Yours truly:
A dirty dust bag 😊
