FRUSTRATION LEVEL 17/10!

Blog Post created by Youngatheart.7.4.12 on Sep 19, 2020

Today was the first day that I wanted to use a newly purchased small shop vac to clean up the mud room floor in preparation for painting.

So - first step.  Put on vacuum bag (looks like one that goes on an upright vacuum cleaner - but longer).  It has a ROUND intake hole.  The place I am to install it has a round intake hole with two WINGS over which the round filter hole will not go....the wings do not appear to adjust, or come off..................

OK - NEVER MIND the paper filter - I will use it without and that's OK.

OK - NOW put the hose and extension pipe together.  But - wait.  There is a wand with a small ridge at the end, and another one with a catch on it that you lift (supposedly to lock in place the other pipe)....EXCEPT the end without the catch does not fit into the end that has the catch.....so that the catch can hold it in place and the other end of the pipe has ANOTHER CATCH.

OK -No problem - I will find the User's Manual and all my questions will be answered!

OK - found the user's guide.

OK  - table of contents lists installation instructions.

OK - ALL it tells you is how to store the various blankety blank pieces in the caddy - like any IDIOT can't figure out how to put the two pipes into the two recesses that are (wait for it) the same SIZE as the pipe extensions, and the other attachments fit in spots exactly the right size to hold them..............................

OK - I can go on the 'net and find instructions................................................

OK - found it.  ALL IT HAS IS A REPRODUCTION OF THE USER'S MANUAL.

 

Never figured it out - BUT

 

never smoked over it, either!!!

 

And I call that a WIN!!
