The right length to get at every different spot that things are that I cannot get to.
And an extra obe to get the beetles off the apple tree too.
Tony, with that little 3" long piece of 1/4" plastic tubing added to the end of my long blower it will get into tons of spots you can't get any other blower without damaging the surface. Great addition to a blower tip.

^^^ Nice idea. 👍

Ain't got no time for swapping blow tubes... actually I looked but the tubes bought alone are over half the price of the whole thing.

I also get a decent discount from my tool supplier. 😁

Good thing...

Don't swap blow tubes either. I have 2 separate guns 1 for general purpose blow offs and 1 for high pressure hard to get dirt. Without the venturi the pressure is higher and more dangerous but more effective with hard to remove debris.

What type of air gun do you prefer to have around you in your shop? do you have preference for a brand? how many blow gun one needs to have in shop?

I have always used the cheaper (Pistol grip type) plastic blow guns with a plastic trigger/handle, and to be fair , they usually last me 4-5 years before they start leaking air or show small cracks near the inlet, I have tried the ones with lever on top but don't care much for them.

Just bought this one from Amazon to give it try, so far I really like it , it's pressure is not adjustable, it's 120 PSI or nothing, but that's what I really was after for blowing dust/debris from clothes or other surfaces.

I also found a Guardair brand air gun which seem to have good reviews , some say they are made in USA but in all likelihood they are made in Taiwan now, do you own one? what do you think of them?
i use the Milton, brand . no worries

Wasn't there a regulation years and years ago that all blow guns had to have a restrictor to limit the pressure of the blown air? Was this the OSHA discussion in earlier posts?

Any of the blow guns I've bought after that ruling seem to only blow low pressure air, compared to the old one's I've had forever.

Only one I own or want is a NAPA full flow. Been using that type since the 70's. Minimum restriction, full pressure.
