I have Record Power lathe which has the motor mounted beneath the lathe bed and gathers an enormous amount of dust and shavings in the 'fins' around the housing and can be a pipper to brush out. I don't own nor have neither any other need nor space for a bulky compressor (the one I did own for a short while had a label on it saying "Keep away from dust!") so I'm looking (cheap) suggestions for blowing the dust out of my lathe's sensitive and hard to reach parts. I had screwed a baton to a piece of ply to sit on the lathe bed to prevent shavings dropping on to the motor and that works great on pieces longer than the housing itself but has to be removed when working on shorter lengths and bowls.
