Greetings all. I have over the last 5 years created a woodturning workshop. A place where I can hide, make a mess and occasionally make something that I am proud of. I am in a bit of a desert NW Wiltshire) as far as woodturning clubs are concerned so I cannot ask my local club members and have had to learn much from courses (Axminster) and the internet videos. I often see air hoses used to clean pieces before a finish is applied and thought I'd try and set one up too. My question is what do others do? Are there any simple quiet air jet systems that would do the job? I am hesitant to buy a system that is used for air tools and garages as that is likely to be bulky and more than I need. Any suggestions, please? Aye, Don

Look for one with a reservoir does not need to be large if that is all you are using it for. just make sure you have good extraction and a mask. It still may be a little noisy but you only need it on for a short time
