My old faithful and extremely noisy Scheppach dust extractor blew up a little bit yesterday. Blue light flashes were witnessed coming from the motor so I surmised it didn’t look too safe to proceed. After a bit of investigation to see if it could be fixed, it was decided the motor was too far gone. Another motor could have been purchased but for the price of a second hand one, I figured I could get a whole brand new vacuum. I’ve salvaged all the useable parts of the old vac. Will do something with it! This wee Wickes own brand workshop vac was a reasonable price and though it’s much smaller, the size really does suit my workshop better and it is an awful lot quieter. We shall see how much it stands up to my abuse. It even has a blower option! 😃👍 Of course, the inevitable and immediate personalisation with decals and puppet eyes were a must.
