I picked this tip up off the web for cleaning carbs.

If you've got a compressor then it's also a great trick for cleaning rear cassettes, mechs, SPDs and blasting residual dirt out of other hard to reach areas.  Just be careful as depending on pressures, it could remove other surface finishes.

Screwfix or machine mart do accessory packs that are usually quite cheap but might include more bits than you need.
B&Q also carry air tools.  Just check the couplings to your hose, you might need some adaptors.

If you happen to get lucky with time of the year, Lidl and Aldi do ridiculously cheap accessory kits for compressors.
