Mini shop vac

I'm lucky enough to have a airplane room in the house, but dust and whatnot has been a problem. Hauling the Dyson or big shop vac was a real pain. Found a small/mini shop vac at CVS. It's a car type, but I think all of us have a 12vdc power supply around. With my 20% off coupon it was only 8.00. Handy little guy for building and crash repair!

Yep, works well for removing Balsa dust from the building board, without sucking up your plan!

PS: To prevent it from sucking in building pins, screws and other small metal bits, epoxy two or three Neodym magnets to the inside of the upper "lip" of the suction tip.
