This is an interesting thread as I just bought a new one that looks like the one from Mcmasters, my original one I used for 4 years came in a kit and looked like the right hand one in the first post.

I had been using my old one to remove seized caliper pistons, but they wouldn't come out, so it was time to get something better.

The new one was so powerful it almost blew a motorcycle brake caliper out of my hand when I first used it, I was surprised how much more powerful it was.

Here it is, from Astro Pneumatic. $17.99 CAD regular price.

Here is the one item I can rave about from Harbor Freight. In fact, I liked the first one so well that I bought years ago I bought a half a dozen more to equip my shop. They are cheap and work great. I outfitted them with the long nozzle and quick disconnects.

We all have collected these over the years.

Here's a photo of some I have. I have several more in the garage, just too lazy to retrieve them. None that I have are great. The best I have is a Wilton (second from left in the photo). (Edit: Milton not Wilton)

I like the shape of the one on the left but the valve is sticky. I'd like one with that shape and with a good throttling valve.

Recommendations would be appreciated.

Okay, discovered why the one on the left in my photo that kicked this thread off is no good. Made in China, sold in the Big Box store, and dirt cheap at <$6 bucks! What was I expecting?

Thanks to all that responded to this thread. I suspect that most of us had fun getting to see all the air blow guns folks use and like, new and old.

I have a new nozzle via my weekly McMaster delivery. Here's my new air blow gun, it is not Chinese, and it works well. Has a 16 bar pressure capacity and the trigger is not sticky and it throttles the air as needed.

I have a couple of them in the shop.. Great for dusting off and when you don't want a full 90psi blast.

I like the Guardair 80WJ. It has the conical tip, no center hole. We've got quite a few of them in the shop and they have been very durable.
