Rechargeable " Canned Air " Blower

Recommended Posts

Just to clarify my post above....  I use an electric blower, open both doors, the big exhaust fan at one door ends up creating a good draft that carries a lot of the dust out the door.  Still just re-arranging dust but if you stand outside the door and sun hitting just right you can see TONS of dust leaving the shack.

Raking and burning slash today so haven't tried mucking out the work rig yet.....

Cars in a city like Santa Monica get street crud and the blooming trees this time of year will match just about anything a desert has.  This old 4Runner has been over the dirt roads of California, Arizona, Nevada and Wyoming but these trees and birds here give it a patina unlike those roads.  The Jacaranda is a dirty tree.


I thought I recognised those purple flowers in the background. Jacarandas are horrible trees. Those flowers when it’s wet just turn to mush, same with Hibiscus flowers. 

As for the bush patina on cars, that’s exactly why I just bought a plain white four wheel drive. That poor things is going to see some horrible conditions in the near future but having the white paint will help hide a bit of damage. Great ideas for the blowers too.

Taskmaster got a "deal" on a DeWalt blower and that little thing came in handy as can be,

It worked a treat when we were dry blowing!!!!!!

We would use it to blow off the backhoe and it worked great on the air filters---- plus he used it on me a few times too..My lungs show opacity since i have been going to WA for some reason...🤠. I was the dry blowing monkey who cleaned out the feeds from the hopper to the Keenes... but i didnt have the heart to tell the doc....

We used the Dewalt for many different things and were really impressed upon how handy it was. 

The last picture is my favorite--- all done and dusted and 4X time---- with a  brilliant lounger seat donated by Condor!!!!  Condor that seat made the Taskmaster happy!!!!!

Wish I had one this morning when I noticed I'd left my passenger side window down all night (and, yes, it rained...  :sad:)  I'd like to say that's never happened before, but I don't like to lie.

I gotta get one of those blowers for my shop and dispense with the canned air.  Being able to take it along on detecting excursions will be a bonus.

NZ tourist shops sell canned air to the tourists for as high as $143 a can.  They buy it too, a lot of it! now that Covid is around they're probably paying a lot more for some fresh air 😛



Would you believe it was a hot selling thing? forgot chocolate bars, kiwi fruit, wines, stuffed toy kiwi's and other things, the tourists wanted the canned air 🙂

      Well it been a long year since COV19 hit, it would be nice to see some camp fires from your detecting grounds. This was winter about 15 years ago in WA.

      EDIT:  This post contains mistaken information.  Please accept my apology.  At this time it is not possible to travel greater than 300 miles with a starlink antenna.  Please read entire thread on page 2 for clarification.  My bad fellas.
      Just wanted to give everyone a heads up that starlink is finally accepting pre-orders.
      For those who don't know this is Elon Musk's satellite internet which is super fast and has no data caps.  The service is 100 bucks a month and 500 to buy the equipment.  To enter the pre-order is only 100 refundable deposit.  
      I've done alot of research on this and it looks like the antenna is small enough that I could easily carry it in my camper and set it up wherever I am.  The power usage is only 300 watts w/ dish motors running and 150 without.  SO this could easily run with a battery and inverter for a number of hours, no 24 hour a day generator.  I'm super excited to have an option for when I am far away from civilization.
      Go to starlink.com and get signed up if you wanna!

      I have prospected with people who subsist on sardines and bread out in the bush, and those who prefer a pan seared steak, asparagus, and baked potatoes. I like to keep things simple and would love to hear your favorite easy camp foods for five plus days in the wilderness.
      Military MRE’s were my choice before the prices went up after COVID-19. A days worth of food in one pouch, and has the benefit of saving your TP since they turn into Quikrete after eating them. But they make a ton of trash and are expensive.
      Please share your own Spartan food choices for someone more interested in detecting than playing chef at camp. I cook at home and when I’m out in the wilds food is just fuel for the adventure. Looking for options that are easy, affordable, don’t require refrigeration or much water since water goes fast in the desert.

      Unfortunately someone decided that they needed the 2 caravans I had left on one of my mining leases more then I did, even worse one of them was Paul’s little van from camp yank.
      While pondering new accomodation for the next yank invasion I spotted this 

      As soon as I seen ‘Special’ I thought of Paul!

      She is going to need a bit of remodeling but will make fine yank worthy accomodation I reckon.
      Plenty of room for you in there too Steve if your brave enough to bunk with Paul.
