Hi there
Can anyone tell me where I can source dustbags and filter for my Macallister Vacuum cleaner? I use it as a dust extractor in my garage but B & Q don't appear to stock and they have been of little help (and that's putting it mildly) in helping me find accessories for this, which is annoying seeing as it is their own brand.

Can anyone tell me if there is an equivalent that I can source from, say Ebay, or somewhere else like it? Is this a standard type bag and filter used on other machines?

Help would be greatly appreciated

It's an eternal problem with B&Q own-branded stuff I'm afraid, spares are extremely difficult to source, it's a case of trawling the internet in the hope you might stumble across a site selling them, I wish you good luck, you're going to need it

EDIT: Just remembered, try stockists of Global Machinery Company products, they may be able to help as some of the items are the same with different stickers on
