I saw a small keyboard USB vaccum in the dollar store. I thought it would be good for after gluing scenery down to clean up the parts that didn't stick this way they can be reapplied/reused.

Has anyone used them before? Are they any good?

Most USB powered stuff isn't very powerful. I'd just grab a normal little hand-held.

Yeah but they look so cool. Like little n scale (or O scale, or G scale) vacuum cleaners. They even have a mini floor vac

I'm surprised at how well the atlas vacuum car works, the USB one might be worth a try.

I have a small 1 hp shopvac with reducers kit..i was gonna line the end of the hose behind the nozzle with a pantyhose for a filter to catch what was picked up..
