I thought I would share some pictures from my workshop taken over the last few years.

Quick Note

Those look really awesome, especially your early Kirby vacuum motors. I'm glad you saw and commented on my 505 posts, that was very nice. Quick question, do you have any spare Kirby 505 parts, like a complete nozzle with the original bumper and belt lifter, Factory original Headlight hood trim on the headlight hood, An original handle grip for a 505, etc. By looking at some of your pictures, you may have spare 505 motor units and other parts. If you have any spare parts, like what I mentioned above, I'd like to get some to finish my Kirby 505 restoration, Please. I have not been having any good luck finding these hard to find parts and was trying to look for a Kirby vacuum dealer or collector, who has these parts. Can you help me Please?
From Liam

I know the vacuums are the star of the show. Is that Kenmore "Anna"?
And those Art Deco Singers are beautiful.
But, I have to admit, I also like the yellow tabletop!
Is that one table, or three small ones pushed together?

yellow table

It's one table, the two end panels fold down to make it smaller. The table pattern is called crushed ice.

That metal is so darned shiny, I almost needed to get my sunglasses!

That's quite a few show vacs.
What is the appolo vacuum? It looks similar to Cleveland vacuum. I love the air way. I want to get one to restore but there hard to find in descent shape.

Excellent work indeed! Always thought that yellow drop-leaf table looked familiar. My parents had that same table in the kitchen of the house where I grew up, but after they had the kitchen remodeled, they no longer had room for it, so they gave it to my Aunt. Last time I saw it was in her basement next to the washer & dryer.

Jeff, Les and Edgar,

Thanks so much for your comments. I may have got the name of the table pattern wrong I think it's called cracked ice not crushed ice. The Apollo vacuum was made by the Brittman company. I have seen other Apollo's here, but they are rare. I have also seen some Air-Ways up for sale but the prices are a little high. I think every vacuum collection should have one, they are so unique.
