I have in my possession a vac bag out of a 70's era AS. It is very small and in fragile condition. Made of thin "tissue" paper with a cardboard ring at one end.
The ring is 3 inches in Outside Diameter.2.25 inches Inside Diameter.
The other end of bag is pleated and obviously expands when in use.
The tissue bag is surrounded with a cardboard cartridge (cone) with instructions printed on one side (white wording against blue background). This cartridge is removed and discarded after installing the bag.
Inside the cone is printed the following;
"For best performance use Tevis Campbell disposable filters."
I guess they call a filter, what I call a bag! ??????
Maybe this bag/filter nomenclature addresses what Jaco was puzzled over above.
Also printed there is this address;
Tevis Campbell Corporation
P.O.Box 60674, Terminal Annex
Los Angeles, California, 90060
Price was $1.50 per set of six.
If I ever become proficient I'll post a picture here. That is reason I have hung on to the bag (filter). That may be a while.
Maybe one of you forum detectives can trace that company which is probably long long gone. But you never know.
Don't know who made the actual vacuum that the little bags went into. Prob another long gone vendor.
Sure dont look like they hold much dirt. But hey ...Life was much cleaner back then...I guess.
BTW what ever became of Jaco? Another very helpful Dissappeared Member.
Whazzup with all of those MIAs????????
