« Part 34: Parking your router without driving lessons. Part 35 of Workshop operational tips. series Part 36: Give your Fe$tool VAC$Y$ a kick along. »

Boys and Girls,

I was tossing up where to post this and decided on it as a tip for all you jocks that have fantasised about the Fe$tool VACSYS but deferring it till the dodgy son-in-law and his biker mates manage to pull off that bank job so you could afford the full set.

I recently posted a video about my VACSYS,

and heard rumblings that it may be discontinued in that there US of the A.

While this post is loosely related to the video, my only regret is that I hadn’t bought it years ago… maybe should have in a past life centuries ago!
I do recommend the dual heads… more shekels, but exponential convenience.

I have mine so it’s no skin off my nose, but without delving into great depths I have gleaned that it is not being decommissioned, but rather discontinued due to political red-tape issues with certification (or maybe re-certification).
I hope this is just a rumor or a Fe$tool announcement to bolster sales, however, if you still have that incling, I suggest you get off your rrrs quickly and do your own due diligence asap.

If the shit actually hits the fan, all I can suggest to all you Freckless, you may be able to acquire a 240V version internationally along with a transformer if you don’t have a 240V socket… well you can have the socket but 240V feeding that socket.

Alternatively, do a Grabo adaptation,

So…. my tip is… you have been warned... and lets hope the rumor is just that.

That’s about as funny as Errol Flynn and his pork and string trick with ducks!

See attached Christmas present

I think if you asked Dave P nicely he may loan you one of his spoon bits

Otherwise
I could do a Freddy Mercury impersonation for you

Then failing all that arousing your feathers refer to picture No 1 !

tee hee!

Sorry rc you’ve lost me, maybe I should wait another month for the vino over Christmas to wear off.

The Errol I regularly practice to keep the family in line, and that spreadable spam has me juicing up… maybe I need another drink to catch up.

Boys and Girls, nothing official from head office, but I have been advised it is discontinued.

So, to all you procrastinators, the boat has sailed.

To think, I had a swag of videos to post… but even I’m not mean enough to rub salt into the wound,

What does one do if they get their face or other body part stuck to that thing and the switch is out of reach?

These are questions that the panel of lawyers consider before a product can be loosed upon the unwashed citizens.

It’s a fine balance between maximizing the lawyers consumer lawsuit profits versus allowing a foreign company to profit.

Lean back and enjoy!

But that is a conundrum that latecomers will not have to endure.

My good deed for the day… saving people thousands of shekels NOT hiring lawyers…

PS. For the climax, I have the switch on a foot plug and that plug is plugged into an ”Alexascream controlled plug.
