Air blow guns are tools that use compressed air to blow dust, debris, or other unwanted residuals from surfaces, machines, or hard-to-reach areas. The tool typically consists of a nozzle that is attached to an air compressor or a compressed air tank with a trigger mechanism. Air blow guns are commonly used in automotive shops, machinery maintenance, and computer repair to clean dirt, dust, chips, or other debris. They are also commonly used in woodworking or metalworking to remove sawdust or metal shavings.
While air blow guns come in various shapes and sizes, safety precautions must be taken while using them, including wearing safety goggles and hearing protection and avoiding directing the nozzle at people or delicate materials.
