I'd bet money that you are right and it is a Tristar vacuum but it got re-badged for Aussies.

I've never seen one, so good find! Hope you grabbed the Lux too

Not a Tristar.

That's a Revelation!

What you have is quite a find, because it's the second of what would become Compact, and dates way back to I think 1948. As for the other one, that's easy, an Electrolux 1205, going back to 1968. I know, because I used to sell them.

Be the Same size as a tri-star Vacuum? Just so that way I can make sure that Iíve got all the bags and filters for it, as there is nothing worse than getting a vintage vacuum and then finding out you donít have a bag for it or the original bag (cloth bag) is one that leaks or has holes

Rare pinnock style machine, And the thing is itís old enough to have slides on the front and wheels on the back so that said something, although bad news is Iíll have to get A new bag for it cloth and or paper preferably cloth though, and it actually has a US style removable power cord, Iíll have to hunt around for something that will physically fit And itís also double insulated as well, Iíll grab a photo of the bottom plate and the pre-motor filter And itís also double insulated as well, Iíll grab a photo of the bottom plate and the pre-motor filter tomorrow morning
