I have nice vcr that has a fine layer of dust inside. How might I remove the dust? Simple gentle compressed air I think is helpful but insufficient.
Would a mini vac be a good tool!

Vacuum won't help, dust is stuck.
Fine brush to loosen dirt. I have artist brushes for fine dusting.
Then compressed air. Not too close, in case of liquid spew, bad for heads, certain other components.
Outside, not inside, or will just be back in the VCR in no time.
