For you tinkerers...

We have two almost-but-not-quite working vacuum cleaners that are free to anybody who wants them and thinks they can fix them.
One is a Hoover upright that may just need a belt or something, but I can't figure out how to open it and look.
The other is a Dirt Devil hand held that I opened to clear a nasty jam. When I reassembled the case the motor wouldn't run. Took it back apart and the motor ran fine. Screwed it all together, dead again.

Since I live with the Shopasaurus we have already replaced both items, but I hate to consign them to the landfill if they can be fixed and somebody can get use out of them.

If they'er still there when I get there, I'll happily have a tinker with them -- if I can get them running, and no one else has spoken for them, I'm sure the local charity shops would be happy to get their hands on 'em ...

I live too far away from you to pick them up. :( But they sound like great candidates for freecycling.

Do you mind if I speak for the Hoover? I think they are awesome vacuum cleaners and ours may be on the fritz.

It's yours.
Now we just have to get it to you...
