Jason writes: “The Stinger mini shop vacuum is tiny but packs a hell of a lot of suction. I have a bigger shop vacuum but find myself reaching for this thing more often. It’s smaller, lighter, and more convenient than its big brother. Plus, if I leave it around the house it doesn’t bug the wife (as much).”
I love the idea of a small-but-functional shop vacuum. We use the hell out of our big one in the Toolmonger shop, but I hate dragging it out and putting it away — especially for “smaller” tasks like cleaning up the workbench after some Dremel carving or metal drilling. And at $30, this would almost qualify as an acceptable impulse buy.
One drawback: it looks like this is only available via Home Depot. Do any of you have experience with other small vacs? We’re pretty serious about picking one up, and we’d love to hear what you’ve got to say in comments.
