Get a small compressor and an "air pig" (that is what they are called
around here anyways).  An air pig is a can that holds air and looks
sort of like a small propane tank you would use for a gas grill.  Use
the compressor to fill the tank, then us e the tank as your air
source.  If you look around you can find all the parts relatively
cheaply; not sure what the compressor will cost you though.
