An airbrush compressor might fit the bill.  They typically operate at 
around 30psi.  The CFM is rather low too, so they're not likely to 
unseat any components.  Decent ones can be had for about $80.

Failing that, grab an air tank (you can get these at any large hardware 
store) and fill it at your local gas station.  You'll probably get just 
as much air in in a mid-size tank as you would in a typical can of air. 
  Plus, for about $30 you can re-use it indefinitely - and refills will 
only cost 50 cents tops.
