    same here. If you buy those dam air canisters, over time they add up to a air compressor. I got mine for about $75

    Nah not really man. They work of a small piston and push out small amounts of air at a time.

    You really need some sort of tank to give you a more constant flow of air.

    Maybe if you rigged your pump to a bottle and filled it with compressed air then spat it at your mb...

    i did use a balloon pump once, it was small but since it had a nozzle it was better than nothing. something with a tank is the way to do it, and a small nozzle is a bonus (higher pressure)

    Vacuum cleaner with a brush head, worked for me for the last 8 years no problems and takes about 5 minutes. Admittedly I'm a lazy sod.
