Default Portible air compressor

Was browsing a thread and came across this little gem.

Metro Vacuum ED500


Has anyone here used this before to clean pcs with? From what I've read it seems to work well, and would be much better suited than an air compressor. It's also a lot cheaper than buying canned air all of the time. The main reason why I don't use air compressors is because of moisture. Don't use the vacuum either because of static discharge.

I think this is going to be put on my wish list, and I'll give it a go at some point. Would be nice to have a mini air compressor that works well for cleaning, yet I don't have to worry about moisture and physical damage like a 125PSI compressor might give.

@Bman212121 I have tried the Metro ED500 and cannot stress how good this product is. It doesn't give off moisture as compreesed air does and it also does not give off any ESD's. You wouldn't believe how much pressure is behind the blower too considering its size..it rivals that of canned air anyday.

@HiCZok make sure the bristles of paintbrushes are of non-conductive material, such as hog's air...You wouldn't believe the damage a lot of paint brush bristles can do to a PCB.
