    From their website -- "ITW Vortec’s Nozzles and Jets amplify airflow volume up to 25 times more than the compressed air supplied."

    Really? Does that translate to more actual "oomph"? Sounds a little precious to me. Whenever I see "amplify" I assume there is a power supply involved, unless you are trading off one thing for another.

    Anybody have real-world experience with these?

    I ordered one Mike, and will try to compare it a little when it comes. You can stop by and check it out.

    I've used these quite a bit. They are quieter and use less air than an 'open' blow off gun. What they mean by amplify is the nozzle moves a larger amount of surrounding air with the smaller amount of compressed air to give a bigger hit than you would normally get with the say 10CFM. A normal blow off gun is around 25 cfm. The air actually comes out in a ring at the largest part of the taper on the nozzle. sort of like a venturi effect. blah, blah blah. Whatever. It works! Quieter, less compressed air, good hit...they also come mounted on copper tubing that I use for air nozzles for dry machining. McMaster sells them under blow off nozzles I think. Some are threaded to go right on the end of a standard blow off gun.
