As some of you know I recently acquired a large lot from a friend in New York. They have kept me quite busy, but almost all of them are completed with currently 4 exceptions. GE Av11

Sanitaire branded Executive, this one was really bad. The paint peeled off in big swatches.

Eureka model 3. This one is taken as far as I can at the present moment. I need to hire a fabrication for a model tag and bag, as well as make a bag connector and 3d print a handle joint.

I'm just speechless, you did a great job on all of them! I actually almost bought a Fedelco like that one on eBay back when I first started collecting. I passed on it because I wanted a old Hoover more, and the auction ended for the Fedelco with 0 bids and I thought it would be relisted, and it was never seen again.

You've come a long way in such a short time, keep it up!

Wow!! what a wonderful bunch of vacuums. Hoover300 you did a great job restoring them. Please let me know the model name or number of the first General Electric on the top of the thread.

These are the kind of vacuums I love to work on and add to my collection.

Jim

So darn cool! Excellent work and devotion to the hobby.
You practically have a museum in the making!

I need to finish that little handheld you sent me long ago this winter.
I at least got the metal polished in spring...
Too many projects, too little time and strength...

Thank you so much!! It has certainly been tiring, and has ate through at least one buffing wheel!

Husky - The Fedelco is basically just a Bee Vac with a stationary back wheel and 2 big front ones. It probably performs the same as your Bee.

Vacmadman - GE model AV11. Sorry for the sideways pictures, VL likes to load pics sideways for some reason. Maybe because most are vertical pics?

You have certainly worked miracles on those machines. You've definitely done yourself proud!

Thank you so much. Mostly completed another today, this Hoover Lark 12. Still needs a good badge and a piece of trim for under the handle bail. The tag underneath said last serviced, October 1968

Beautiful. 1968? I'd say it may have
