Subject: Tiny vacuums?
 

Does anyone know of a vacuum type thing (this is a very scientific description) to clean up grounds besides my dust buster?  It works perfect but would be neat to have a tiny "spy sized" vacuum.   Would the ones that people use for keyboards work well?  If I remember right I saw one a few years back and it was small, I think.  Not sure, this is why I'm asking here.

I think you want this to go with your polished machine :)  It works and there is a selection.  It may stir more conversation than your Silvia :)

Or there are several keyboard vacuums such as this, and many up to $10 - 15.

Click Here (www.amazon.com)

Most are USB, but an Iphone wall adapter that takes USB would output the about 5V and allow it to work.

Tried a couple went the cheap paint brush route. A quick brush into the knock box held to the edge of the counter and i am good. If you do find one you please by do post it.

 
Yes i have a reason for leaving SCG off my list, yes it is my opinion, yes it is subjective as opinions are by definition, no don't start a flame war because you disagree.

How can I not order that cow.  That is awesome.  Now that qualifies as a spy gadget!

Careful, there a few choices.  You could want the pig, or something else.  Glad you got a smile out of it.

They really can be a conversation stopper or starter when you actually use it.  It was a local purchase years ago, but I have not seen them lately except Amazon.

I had a small rechargeable and it simply didn't work very well.  So, I went out and got a small shop vac and keep it handy.  It only cost about $15 at Menards and it works way better than anything else.

Subject: Cheap mini vacs have poor batteries
 

After a couple inexpensive hand vacs, I did some research and settled on:

Dirt Devil Accucharge Technology BD10045RED click here
They range from $37 - $50.

Has really strong section, readily cleanable filter, fairly fast recharger.  
I use it to vacuum chaff from around my Behmer roaster as well as coffee ground around grinder.
I have had it about a year, and it continues to charge and work very well.

That looks to be as big as a standard hand vac though and I was trying to get smaller.  Has anyone seen this   MetroVac DVR-1  It looks like it comes from a line of healthy professional vacuums.
