Quite possibly a longshot, but it wouldn't hurt to ask. I am in search of a GE Roll Easy, any generation and in any shape, so long as the motor works. I currently have a 3rd generation model and possibly want to complete the set. (I assume the GE bug has bitten me hard recently.)

If you don't happen to have the machine, I am also interested in some of the attachments. I currently don't have the original brushed aluminum wands or the turquoise floor tool and a "donut" that goes at the end of the hose for my 3rd generation GE.

Let me know what you got! I'd greatly appreciate it.

coming from experience, when it comes to machine specific attachments, which the GE roll easy they were due to the colors, its FAR easier to find a complete machine than just bits an parts, especially attachments. youd want a 2nd or first generation roll easy as well, not a duplicate third im sure. the first itteration roll easy however, was a completely different canister design than the last two.

I suppose that is indeed true. The attachments rarely stray away from the machine. I can also paint up some later model swivel top attachments in a similar color scheme with the machine. That happens to be the case with my current machine, its using a later model swivel top floor tool with the chrome wands. I wouldn't mind picking up another duplicate Roll Easy. They're hard to find as is and maybe I'll be able to make one complete setup out of the two.

I do recall someone offering up a 1st generation model to me a few years back, but I had just started a new job at the time and didnt' have the means to make the purchase right then. Lost their contact and email after a phone issue. Safe to say that offer is probably off the table seeing after how much time has past.

They really are a beautiful machine. Especially the copper colored plated wands.

I just saw that this morning! As you stated it is unfortunately missing some bits. Iíll keep an eye on it for the time being. If you ever decide to sell your machine, do let me know!
