I was bored, so I built <a href="http://www.morninglion.com/dork/vac1.JPG" target="_blank">this</a>... It's made from crap in my office, and it's very handy for PCs, even for messes I make on my desk!<br><br>
Ingredients:<br><br>
One can Air Duster<br><br>
One Plastic Straw<br><br>
Scotch tape<br><br>
One Wypall L30 towel<br><br>
One paper clip<br><br><br><br><a href="http://www.morninglion.com/dork/vac2.JPG" target="_blank">Step 1:</a><br><br>
Cut a small home in the drinking straw about 3â€from the end to insert the blowcan’s straw.<br><br><a href="http://www.morninglion.com/dork/vac3.JPG" target="_blank">Step 2:</a><br><br>
Insert the blowcan’s straw into the drinking straw, Push it in about an inch towards the short end.<br><br><a href="http://www.morninglion.com/dork/vac4.JPG" target="_blank">Step 3:</a><br><br>
Seal the two straws with a bit of tape, I found that leaving it long and sticking it to itself to trap the straws works best.<br><br><a href="http://www.morninglion.com/dork/vac5.JPG" target="_blank">Step 4:</a><br><br>
Insert the assembly into the Blowcan’s nozzle. This way we can check our vacuum, it should have suction!<br><br><a href="http://www.morninglion.com/dork/vac6.JPG" target="_blank">Step 5:</a><br><br>
Fold a Whypall in half, then lay the straw in the middle as shown in the picture. Tape it down, sealing the edges.<br><br><a href="http://www.morninglion.com/dork/vac7.JPG" target="_blank">Step 6:</a><br><br>
Fold the towel over, and tape the bottom edge. Sealing it fully.<br><br><a href="http://www.morninglion.com/dork/vac8.JPG" target="_blank">Step 7:</a><br><br>
Fold the end of the towel over, and tape fully, sealing that edge. Then fold up the bottom again and tape, these folds help create the seal.<br><br><a href="http://www.morninglion.com/dork/vac9.JPG" target="_blank">Step 8:</a><br><br>
Finish the bag by taping the front edge, I laminate it with tape, as shown, sealing around the straw as well. Don’t want that dirt back!<br><br><br><a href="http://www.morninglion.com/dork/vac10.JPG" target="_blank">Step 9:</a><br><br>
Attach bag and straws to the can. This is where I use the paper clip. I bent the clip into a pair of hooks, so the straw’s tension holds it in place. This keeps it at a good angle for use.<br><br>
Step 10:<br><br>
Enjoy, Sometimes, if your bag flops, you may want to use another paper clip to help keep it form folding at the end of the straw, and blocking it.<br><br><a href="http://www.morninglion.com/dork/vac.avi" target="_blank">Here's</a> a short video of it sucking sugar off a keyboard!
