Default Re: Using Canned Air For Removing Dust

Beware of cheap compressors as they're not nearly as useful as the adverts would have you believe. The fundamental difficulty is that they are not capable of shifting air fast enough to maintain sufficient pressure in the tank. Even inflating a tyre can become a painfully slow activity. Also you need good quality separators for paint spraying and any other situation requiring clean dry air. Really useful compressors don't come in at much less than 400 to 500.
