Thanks. Already mentioned that in my youtube description. I was thinking of using a nail, it's a little tougher. The other option was to sweep the debris away first, then vacuum. Nonetheless, the vacuum worked great and deposited the cons directly into a five-gallon bucket.

Regards.

Hi Dan,

Yes. Pretty much everything we use is a DIY. Our neat little crevice tool was actually a three-prong garden rake that we broke the other two prongs off. Cost $2.99 and works better than the $30.00 commercial tool.

Regards.
