I have a tri-star, very very pricey but is the best vacuum I have ever owned. Never an issue in the last 10 years.

I've always buyed a eureka, it is very easy to service yourself. You could take the whole machine apart and pit it back together without any screws left over.

I'll be going this route next time. The one she bought is already falling apart.

The cheap ends up expensive.

Selvage the cord from the old vacuums, they work great on the skill saw.

Yup, I keep all of my cords from sweepers, toasters, irons, and the like. They make great extension cords that'll carry a load.

I was just thinking that 50 foot cord on my vacuum would be awesome on a skilsaw.

And would damage your saw.

It may but an under sized extension cord does the same thing.
