  • "Blowing out" or cleaning a 280dx dynasty

    Anyone know of a video that does this? While I am a mechanic by trade I am a little scary about cracking into this with all the sensitive electrics and whatnot...

    So long as you're not wearing a blindfold while doing this, just keep an eye/feel for a ground wire/connector that might go to the shell/case of the machine. That's about it. Low-pressure and take your time. Don't do it 3 min before you have to pick up your wife at the airport.

      It wont hurt it and better than full of dirt,,,, if it needs it. I have a AC/DC Linc, had it for decades, 1000 hours on it. Thought it would be a good thing, removed the cover and then put it right back on. It was very clean, looked new. There are places, some weld shops with dust and constant grinding probably dirties up machines and have seen heard of them at repair places where they were clogged up. My own, never had it happen or really need it bad, have blown them out when I had a cover off on ones we used a LOT. If this is home/hobby, any place other than constant use I doubt it even needs it.

          Last summer I blew out a invertec v350 in a guys shop. I use it for heavy equipment repair there. I don’t think it had ever been done. I’m guessing the machine is 7-8 years old. Wow, did a LOT of very fine dust come out of it.
