    Air compressor to remove dust out of hardware.

    Hi

    Was wondering if anyone can give some advice on air compressor. As like a lot of you probably to clean the dust out of our machine we use air compressor cans but find that they run out very quick and at £4.00 per can we wondering if there is an electrical version of this.

    If it means we pay slightly more i.e. up to £100 I can see some sense in buying one.

    As anyone used a hardware air compressor to remove dust out of machines, if so could you recommend one.

    Much appreciated

    I'd recommend a duskmask, paintbrush and mini vacuum cleaner.
    having said that, the thought of then buying air powered tools is quite appealing http://www.machinemart.co.uk/product...sors/index.asp

    Be careful when buying this kind of cleaning equipment. Some build up a heft static charge in use. Which can discharge into what your attempting to clean. With disasterous results. Make sure the equipment is rated for cleaning electrical equipment.

    I have an antistatic toner vacuum for this purpose.

    I bought a fake tan / art air compressor off a car boot for £12
