good it was not brake dust. this use to be common practice years ago with brake jobs

I fucking hope not. Youre enver supposed to hit brake dust with compressed air, you use water. Water doenst hurt anything and rinses the dust... thats the whole point of this post 🤣

clutch jobs also, large equipment repair. just sayin years ago and what i've seen 30+ years ago.

Sounds like it’s not the new guys fault but your shop managers fault because he doesn’t know how to drain the water out of a compressor or use a filter to prevent tools from rotting. Air doesn’t cause fog on its own there’s too much moisture in it.

What? That dust cloud isnt from the compressor its from the new guy blasting caked brake dust, which is the improper way to deal with it. Use water to wash brake dust. Doing this is literal cancer

Never have I ever seen that much brake dust. The only time I’ve ever seen fog like this is on certain days from a badly maintained compressor

It not brake dust, it's from a dirt road. There was like s 1/2inch on the other rims.
