    Canned air

    What is everybody using out there, we got the word a while back, no more canned air, instead they passed out a electric blower with a nozzle on it, like a jet stream of air.
    Not as handy as a can of air, but will outlast many of them.

    Sometimes canned air, sometimes manual wipe. If it's not an office setting I have a very small 2 gallon air compressor that I can use if need be.

    That device looks pretty neat. Have you used it yet? Work good? What's the make and cost of it?

    Looks like it would provide air on demand but not have the focused PSI that a compressor would.

    Alright found a video review of this product at amazon. It looks pretty amazing. I don't know how it would go over at some of the offices though.

    Never bought a single can of air... but I did buy that unit.

    I like the way the compressed air cleans, It is a nice setup to have. But it's not for every call.

    I just wish I could find a momentary contact switch to replace the latching one.

    Some sort of trigger on the handle would be an idea.

    Be better than draggin around a compressor and hose. I sent the link for the Metro duster to my boss. Maybe we'll get one sometime in the future.

    I've been using the Giottos Air Rocket for a while. =^..^=

    If you'd like a serious answer to your request:
    1) demonstrate that you've read the manual
    2) demonstrate that you made some attempt to fix it.
