Why not try using some thiner tube on a vac. Just needs a bit of thinking to connect with what you have in the shed

If you go down the compressed air route make sure you keep the can upright.Holding at an angle can release water vapour(not good).
Also keep about 6 inches away.

Never had to clean a computer out as I live on my own, and I am a none smoker. I also run my main computer with both sides off

I did buy a adapter for the vac for doing that job, must be two to three years ago but never used it and would not now know where it is. I also got a brush come squeeze balloon for keyboard never used that neither

Cannot see why as you are not using any metal to short anything out, blow or suck whats the difference?

I think they think we may be too vigorous or get too close with the vac.They do suck pretty hard.
But keeping a sensible distance from components and using an adapter should be fine.
Some on this forum even use the brush on the end.
Don't think i'm brave enough to try that though.
