    Cleaning a pc

    Does anyone know where can get an air compressor from?

    Im currently repairing a lot of computers on a regular basis, and in the process i am using alot of canned air which costs alot of money, I have used an air compressor before for cleaning a pc, and in the long run it would be cheaper if i got one than having to buy air all the time.

    Any know what type of compressor or what i am looking for? or if anyone has experience doing this and can point me in the right direction?

    compressed air can leave alot of gunk in your case. Seriously hair dryers are great for this... small nozzle, on cold, full blast. Clean PC in a about 10 secs and no mess.

    The above kit equates to 13 cans of Jessops tinned air, should keep you amused.

    Sticked as well, nice companion to the cleaning a TFT thread.

    I learnt the hard way a few years back long long story. Got that motherboard working in the end though.

    Quite expensive though, there are bigger/cheaper cans around.
