    Squeeze Bulb Blower

    This is just one of those silly things that I don't give much thought to. Then I recall that many folks here have mentioned things in passing that I have found valuable. Sometimes I'm doing detail work that involves little chips getting in the way. I would find myself getting dizzy from blowing them away as I don't want to fire up the compressor "just for this" but then (as usual) "just for this" goes on longer than planned.

    Those squeeze bulbs are handy, for sure. I remember getting the bright idea once to use a drinking straw to blow some dirt out of a hole.

    I musta had dirt in my eyes for days.

    I'm glad to see that I wasn't the only one to suffer the same fate.


    Maybe we could start a poll with this

    Guilty of that act of brilliance also . . . . it seemed like such a good idea, ouch.

    Yep, have the bulbs. I also have tubes for blowing out HF's but they don't help at all when you look in the hole to see what you are doing. I don't know how such big shavings get under your eyelids.
    There are no mistakes in woodworking until you run out of wood.
