    I chose my vacuum cleaner very carefully so that it would suck me for a long time. On a special site, I read customer reviews and bought the best one; by the way, I found some tips how best to clean the container. I spent a lot of money, but I am confident that it does not give up in a year.

    I thought you said a dc motor was used to make this. So Where did the plug come from in one of the pics in "final steps"? Did you supply ac current? How? Pls tell.
