What kind of keyboards are you using? I use a Rigid shop vac to my keyboard and I haven't lost any keys.

I'm not sure what the brand of the keyboard was, but it came stock with an HP. Thinking more deeply now, I think it was a flimsy keyboard anyway. I' now using a Logitech keyboard, and I don't think the keys could get sucked up. Regardles, though, I'm not trying it.

After my "flashlight blower thingie" died, I got one of these:
Amazon.com: Black & Decker 18-Volt Pivoting-Nose Cordless Handheld Vacuum: Home & Garden

I have stock issue HP keyboard. If you use the little brush attachment there's no way you're going to pull the keys off the board. I'm still using the HP keyboard from a machine I bought around 2001 or so. It's not heavy like the old IBM 101 but it's not that flimsy.
