TheLadyLion and I are getting close to our wedding day and she’s coming up with decorating stuff I didn’t even know existed. Yesterday she told me she had to go to four placed to get balloon weights. “Whatthehellareyoutalkingaboutwoman?” was my incredulous neanderthal response. I quickly learned that there are special weights for holding down helium balloons on tables. Fair enough but then she said she was going to have to spend around $100 on disposable helium tanks. Ouch. I have an inert gas tank for welding and I can get it filled for less than $25. Problem is it’s not a big one, only 55 cubic feet. My back of the envelope calculations say it will be marginal for filling 120+ 11" balloons at best. If I’m way off base on that I’d like to know. I’d prefer not to risk incurring her wrath by only filling half the balloons. Should I get a second bottle which I wanted to do anyway?
I’ll also need to get an inflator valve but already found one on ebay and several welding supply places. If anyone knows how to fill a balloon inside a balloon please let me know.
