To some of the dust all you need to do is open up the container that it comes in. It's basically three pieces you got the barrel which is a tube that concentrates the air in the dust. Then you have the main body assembly which has the hopper and the fan enclosed. Then the handle all you have to have is a Phillips screwdriver that I happen to have on hand. You attach that handle by screwing it down and put the barrel on and what happens is the dust goes in the hopper, it's sifted through a flour sifter, it goes into the blaster where it's created by a fan when you crank the handle. Then it blows the mixture of air and dust out of the nozzle.
