I like to have an air gun handy for blowing off surfaces and tools. I have one drop from the ceiling with a coil hose that will stretch to 25 feet, and a separate regulator to reduce the pressure to 40 psi. The air gun is hanging about as high as I can reach it and the middle of the hose is supported by a long bungee cord. When I unhook the air gun, it will drop to below waist level and it will reach around to where I need it most of the time. If I pull harder, the bungee will stretch to give me some extra travel. And, if I need the full extension, I simply unhook it from the bungee.
