MINI VACUUM CLEANER WITH OWN HANDS FROM OLD WINCHESTER (HARD DRIVE)
How to clean the dust from the PC system unit or keyboard with a conventional vacuum is difficult. In order to cope with this task quickly and efficiently, he made a reduced analogue from an outdated hard drive from the same PC.
He unscrewed the lid of the device and removed the extra parts, leaving only the drive with the disk. I attached plastic blades to the last one (photo 1).
Cut a hole in the lid with a metal file for an air outlet (photo 2)
He made an air duct from thick cardboard (dimensions and shape are arbitrary) (photo 3) and glued it to the top of the lid with a heat gun (photo 4).
The height of the blades should be 1-1,5 mm less than the distance from the cover to the disk (assembly).
For reliable connection, the joint is closed with tape.
The opening, through which air with dust will come out, was closed outside by a filter from a nylon stocking. Fixed it on the device with tape. Mini vacuum cleaner ready. I connect it through the plug to the power supply from the PC and do the cleaning.
If you do not have a free block from a PC, you can use a regular power supply unit on 12 B, and solder its wire to the hard disk contacts.
