Idea for clearing chips

Post by calica » Fri Oct 04, 2013 6:12 am

Just found (and bought) this:

Thought this would be an easy and cheap equivalent to a "puffer" to clear chips from deep slots.

Neat fan. Too bad I upgraded from my Dremel. Had problems clearing chips while cutting 10mm grooves in one go yesterday, so I definately have to find a similar solution.
