    Galoot Air Hose

    Ever need to blow the shavings or sawdust out of a hole?

    Remember that Soft Drink you got on the way home and tossed the cup and lid away?

    Well salvage that Lid and Straw. Wash them up real good. Never know what was in the trash can.

    Stick the Straw thru the cup like you did to drink. Now you ready to use another high $ tool.

    That loose crud down in that hole has got to come out, Air hose is clear across shop, blower is other way, or you don't have air. Pick up that new high $ tool and stick in that hole, push the lid down aways, and exert some nice low pressure air in the hole to clean it out. The lid is a nice safety devise. Just don't blow so hard you make da hole bigger.

    Jr, you are a genius.
    Just today I wanted to blow the saw dust out of a fresh drilled hole but did not want to recharge the air compressor just for that. Ended up with a face full of sawdust. Thanks for the tip. Hope I remember it.
