I Need an Air Gun

I want a small air gun to blow saw dust and other particles out of various things that I work with. Is there one out there that is not too cumbersome? I don't mind one with an air hose, but rather not have one attached to a big noisy air compressor. What might be my options on a smaller scale? Canned air is not strong enough. Thanks!

Pretty hard to blow air without an air compressor. Not sure if bellows would be strong enough or not but you could look into it. They make all sizes of air compressors... The small ones just won't move much air (less CFM).

You can locate the noisy compressor 50 feet away from you, outside, or in another room if you don't like the noise. You just need a longer hose.

I would look for an inexpensive battery operated leaf blower.

I guess the big question is, do you have electricity available? Is so use a small vacuum in reverse. The leaf blower idea is good but it's noisy.

The oiled compressors aren't as noisy as the oil less ones. Personally I couldn't imagine not having an air compressor. You'll find a lot of uses for one.

How about using a vacuum in forward? I mean, why not vacuum up your saw dust. I'd think that'd be better than blowing saw dust all over the place. I'd suggest getting a shop vac.

A small shop vac is a good idea. They suck and they blow.
