The resto was a bit more like a clean up I wanted to look 97 years old . I had to sandblast the adjuster and handle latch as they were too badly rusted that most of the platting was gone. Donít worry that switch isnít connected itís bypassed.

You need a switch! I have a bakelite one to a rebuilt Hoover I'd sell, or there is this great condition original one. Looks like it just needs the screws! You may be able to get them down in price too.

Otherwise, looks great!

Actually, an even better deal for a slightly nicer switch here:

It could definitely use a rebristling and should have wire rug guards to keep the rug from being sucked up into the vacuum.
