Vacuuming For Small Parts

New postby Marty101 » Wed Sep 12, 2018 1:29 pm

Friends,I have heard many tips over the years on which vacuum to use,going through the dust bag with a magnet,etc. and so on. My sweetie heard me complaining about brass and gold parts being so hard to find in the mess,and she suggested I cover the end of the vacuum with a nylon.
That might occur to some,but I just never thought of it. It works great,you can control the amount of mess-try it guys...even if you have to buy a pair of nylons yourself. :)
Keep winding things,
