Just this morning the daughter says, the Vacuum isn't working right.


The real question here is how do you get your kids to vacuum??
They eat after it is done....

Or me? 8)  I hate to vacuum, end of story, but on a rare day I do.

My kids are adults & somebody else's "problem"? 

The larger question is how to get kids these days to do anything. I have one I'm trying out on Tuesday. Knock on wood.

I've restored about a dozen Diamond J's(Jubilee) vacuums for friends & family. I gave them as gifts. Electrolux had many great metal body canisters back in the day. I have most of them back to the late 50's. That particular model with the PN is a force of nature.When I do a whole house clean, one of those always gets the vote. 80's vintage.

The rest of the time I play around with other vacs....like the floating Hoover Connie(Constellation). Vacuuming can be FUN with the right vac! :D

It's implied if you suggest you know anything before hand. I changed out my oldest son's college car and my wife drove it to her campus job and parked out front on the main drive with a for sale sign. This young girl who worked as a FT clerical test drove it and bought it. Car had ~ 200K on the ODO and she called me a short time later, cussed me out cause me being a mechanic and all I knew the speedo was gonna go out. It's happened any number of times actually as I built wrecks, drove them awhile then sold when another one was done. They'd call and rant about something thats a wear part and I'd hang up is it got nasty.
Chinese: I don't buy the grease story at all. I rode a BMW G650GS motorcycle which happened to be their first one built in China and the forums lit up over how they were eljunque based on not having been built by the regular crew of Bavarian elves. There small MC is built in India.  Fact is they had great QC and still made there along with some other high end machines. Many American mfg pros have commented on Chinese mfg to the point it's probably written into white papers & books by now many times.
Last year I bought big cheap Chinese bearings on Amazon to update my log standards on my WM LT15 mill-yes they had grease as have others I'm come across. That said I'm not a fanboy of Chinese stuff. When I put new tires on my Korean tractor I prefer to go with Titan-used to be GY now a separate company of there own in IL. Most come from Asia now as do virtually every tractor in the world too.  
I'm saying zero in defense of Chinese bearings. If you want a good bearing go to a bearing house and buy a decent one.
However, they know how to harden steel and makes parts on the equal with anybody in the world....if they want to and they're not making it to a price point.

My point was that if you order replacement Chinese bearings for your Chinese made tool, open up the sealed dust cover and pack it properly with Moly or a top tier suitable bearing grease.....or you'll be sorry if you use it hard.

And yes they have grease, just not near enough, packed properly, or even a good quality grease.
