Recommend me a....
... handheld vacuum cleaner!
In our professions we obviously have to put up with a hell of a lot of dust, we have an unbranded pile of junk that struggles to suck up anything tbh. Wondered if any of you could recommend a good robust one that has served you well? (and maybe even had some decent nozzles for cleaning out PC cases)

The old Henry does the job everywhere I've been. Not sure a handheld is going to have the oomph to get 1,500 kids' skin cells off the fans of a school computer.

Don't tend to look at their feet when I'm poking the fire

My dad has one of these for removing mildew from old books. They are very good.

See, I have a rebuttal for whenever somebody uses "You don't look at the mantle when you're poking the fire"..

On topic, I've never really liked to use hoovers in my PC's. Usually I just take a medium-sized paintbrush and give everything a good wipe off, having a hoover nearby to pick up all the airborned dust.

We have a Dyson at home, it lasts for 60 seconds on one blast and you get 6 minutes out of one charge, thats loads of time to get things clean.

We just hit the PCs with our compressor...yet to see dust/skin/snot that can resist the force of many PSI. Keyboards get soaked in foaming cleaner first, then airblasted dry, then treated to a sprayover with sanitizer spray (lemon fresh), then airblasted again.
PCs - just insert the nozzle, dial up the pressure, pull the trigger and watch the system eject clouds of dust from every possible exit. Facemask essential.

Does this not knacker the fans? I once tried to clean a heatskink with a hoover and it overspan the fan and burnt it out :-(

We have a compressor for just this task, but to be honest i'd rather be getting rid of the dust than simply redistributing it.....and it's just not productive having to wheel the compressor outside every time we need to use it. Much easier to have a hand held vacuum to do the job
