Is it not closer to saying 'railway station' to distinguish from a bus
station, police station or electricity substation? 'Socket' has more
than one meaning.
But "meet me at the railway station" is required so you don't wait for me at the bus station.
However "plug the hoover into the socket" suffices. Most people would not attempt to insert the plug into their eye socket.
Also you wouldn't say "the train is stopping at the railway station", just "the station". You only need the extra word when there's ambiguity.
My wife was hinting about what she wanted for our upcoming anniversary.
She said, "I want something shiny that goes from 0 to 150 in about 3 seconds"
I'd say "electrical sockets". A plug is the opposite of a socket. So you call those socket plugs?

I didn't ship a 50's Hoover constellation home from S Africa in 1983
because it was too heavy. It still worked perfectly.
Let's face it, its a disgrace that Dysons have so many spare parts. Back
in the day all that wore out was the rotating brush, the rubber belt,
sometimes the bag, and the carbon brushes in the motor.
“it should be clear by now to everyone that activist environmentalism
(or environmental activism) is becoming a general ideology about humans,
Its so expensive to buy spare parts.
MY point was simple. 20 years is the expected lifespan of ANY vacuum,
not just a DieSoon, and the total lifetime cost of a DieSoon with all
the necessary repairs is WAY more then other machines.

diverted our attention away from what really matters to our existential

I used my DC05 and the hose split there was a screw I;d dysoned up sticking
slightly out of it and wedbed in an awakward place so I traded it in at ag

ill works OK.
They might not be the best cleaners but everyone I know personlly is very p

I am tempted by the G-tech advertised on TV but it's about the same price
as a dyson at £300 .
Thanks for the tip, bookmarked.
There's a guy locally that refurbs them and sells them on. He took my
old DC01 in partex and gave me a DC07 with the HEPA filter, serviced,
filters, belt and clutch changed, looked new, for 40 quid. The colour
is pretty vomitous, though. Purple?! But it works. For now.

Mine needed the power cable to be shortened by about 6" and rewired
into the machine (somehow it had frayed and shorted). It also needed a
new flexible hose (old one had split). That's in 20 years.
Only actually got rid of it because it was a bit heavy and noisy in
today's terms, and the bit you actually run along teh floor was showing
signs of wear.
