Got This For Cleaning

#1 by Steve Carter , Thu Oct 01, 2015 11:48 am

I got this small hand held blower for cleaning my projector and PC, I do use another attachment which I have that is a very small tube for getting right in there, (Oooo er Misses, 'ave you ever got right in there), any-ways it's good for the job and @ £11.99 you cant go wrong, saves on those dust aerosol cans which if you point in certain directions the liquid comes out into the unit.

Any upright or cylinder style vacuum cleaner does a great job at extracting the dust and residue particles from the innards of a machine if you place a tiny nozzle on the end of it.

I adapted a piece of Festo pneumatic 6mm tubing to a 25mm bore to place on the end of our Bissell vacuum. Very powerful suction for use in the operator side of the machine.

Yes Andrew, but sometimes it's better to blow than suck.

I recently used a vacuum cleaner to suck any particles out of the film path, I hadn't done it before. I projected a short that always had slight movement, I thought it was down to maybe perf wear, but after the vacuum treatment, it was as steady as a rock.

It's amazing just how much debris deposits itself along a film path especially the intricate areas. A good powerful vacuum will always sort this.
Just be sure all parts are fully secured prior to switch on!

how does the actual power of blow compare to the compressed air cans?

All this talk of blow and suck sounds like instructions for playing the mouth organ.

Well it blows so good it cleaned the bathroom extractor fan of all it's build up of dust, and those really get stuck up, my other half tells me it's the best she has used on that fan, blew it clean out of the vent, the dust that is. It also comes with a bag so you can use it as a vacuum as well.

Just a little thought here, where the hell are you keeping these machines that they need all this suckin' an' blowing, I give it
a blow with the puff I have if there's a bit of debris, a brush after every spool with my 1 inch paintbrush and I'm done,
I remember a chap I bought some films from, he had a compressor with a hose to blow stuff away, Keeping them in a polythene
bag seems a better option to me.

I was a bit worried when I bought my B&H 655 as the seller told me he kept it and the films in his garage. A couple of screens came with it, which I cleaned and sold off; they had foxing (brown spots)
