Got this off ebay last week. The original cord had a few bare spots, so i had to temporarily shorten it to the spring. Unfortunately, the leather part holding the bag to the handle broke, but it is in otherwise great shape. It also has a very unusual sound. Does anyone know anything about these? Thanks

There cool little machines, made under a few different names. I have one made by OK Machine in Fort Wayne, IN with the original screw in plug. Its an absolute pain to find a belt small enough to drive the little brush roll. Not powerful but neat little things!

I have one like the O.K.

Called the sweeper vac. Hair ties/ponytail bands work. This one is slightly different though, as the handle is a separated piece of wood above the bag.
This one has a really cool plug, it is HUGE and is made of rubber.
