I'm going to try and vacuum this thing out before re-assembling it.
Thanks Recondas, RobesPierre

If you stay away from the lowend-who-knows-who-made-it stuff, a compressor designed for airbrush work would probably be pretty safe. High-end air brush compressors are designed (and filtered) to prevent the output of oil, water or other contaminants (if you've just spent a couple of days applying detailed custom graphics to someone else's motorcycle you're gonna have zero tolerance for compressor-supplied paint additives).bluecode wrote:You can get a filtered airgun for use with a regular compressor (guys at bodyshops use these all the time so they don't ruin an expensive paint job) but I don't know how much you'll have to spend to get one that is safe to use on computer guts.
