I love old stuff. You just can't get the quality any more.

 

I bought this old 1956 Kirby 516 sweeper at an auction for $0.25. It was in Really sad condition. Bag was all stained up and the rest was white with corrosion and a scuffed up.

 

I spent $65 in parts and many hours to get it where it is now. All original but the light bulb,brushes,beater bar,belt and motor bearings. Replacement parts are all OEM Kirby. Many hours of hand polishing. I had to turn down the commentator on my uncles lathe because 1 of the original brushes had stuck and the other one burnt a groove. But she runs really good and looks absolutely beautiful.  It's light weight and it has Alot of power.

 

I enjoy using it more than the New plastic hoover bagless sweeper untill I have to empty the bag on the Kirby lol. It doesn't take sweeper bags. It has a door on the bottom with a latch that you flip open and you have to dig the stuff out by hand.  Not to bad if you don't let it fill up very full before emptying it.

My like new Ikea Futon that I scored locally on Letgo for $20 and $5 delivered to my door. And one of my old Homelite XL saws. Yep I keep 1 saw in the house lol. That's 1 of the 2 that I have that the oiler doesn't leak.

This is the latest tool I bought for tractor / Auto work. Best part is no cord or hose. I have the impact for screws but it just didn't have the ummph. This really worked great when i had a flat on the trailer on the highway . Made quick work of those lug nuts .

I had to replace my 10 year old Chinese plasma cutter. It seems to be hung up in pilot mode. I could have probably replaced a board and got it going, but I was in a hurry and bought a new one. It has more features and looks to be better quality than the old one and $100 cheaper to boot.

 

Is Cut 50 the only brand name? Where did you buy it?

I bought this old 1956 Kirby 516 sweeper at an auction for $0.25.

My wife had a Kirby given to her. It had the knife sharpener, drill chuck, all kinds of useless stuff. The trouble with it was the cast aluminum impeller. The first incident was when a small finishing nail accidentally got sucked up and broke the fins off. I had to buy a new impeller; not cheap! The next time a piece of pea size gravel broke a fin and we gave up on it. Too expensive.

Got it off amazon for about $250. I think the chinese steal so much proprietary info from each other and US that they dont even bother branding stuff. They are all made out if the same parts anyway. CUT50 denotes it is a 50 amp machine. These things are getting cheaper every day. Anyone that has a welder needs to get one
