Bunch O Balloons : Re-engineered Version 1
 
5 Attachment(s)
So a few months ago I got a Bunch O Balloons pump, but have only just had chance to look at re-engineering the straws to take bigger balloons.

This is my first attempt and to be honest it's shit but works. Using wine corks whilst cheap isn't the best option as they are a pain to drill and hot glue the straws, the glue got so hot is nearly melted a few straws. I need to find a better solution for these that doesn't cost a lot of money. I have some ideas and possibly a 3D printer soon.

Today as a test we hooked it up to 8 x Belbal 14" balloons, all but one popped on the machine (it was leaking air due to my poor gluing). They popped SO LOUD, like gun shots and got huge necks. I'm pleased with the result but can't scale it up to the full 40 balloons using corks.

That looks fun. Would be great for balloon rooms to

Hey man, thank u for share your work with us, it is an amazing creation, I am sure you will get much better results pretty soon ��

So cool! Did the 14"s all burst together for you, or one at a time?

Kreuzkastenspieler on YouTube has videos too of his modified Bunch-O pump taking out bigger balloons, like this one with 40 Tuftex 14"s:

Most popped as singles, a couple popped together.

I did 8 x 11” in a cage with my GF in there, they all popped at once, she said the blast wave was intense and they whipped her all over her body.

So the new attachments have arrived. Just need to glue them onto the straws and see how they perform. The best part of this design is that the balloons are clamped on by a simple thread and the ribbed part of the nozzle acts as a seal.

A little tip to keep them from mass popping if you're wanting more pops with the bunch-o-loons is to get some hose from the hardware store that matches the original straws and cut some a bit longer so the loons aren't touching and set each other off. I forgot the hose size but will send more info when I can! I'm trying to rig up some sort of squid line like a 1 to 3 hose to see if I can get even more loons attached.

Really like the 3D printed attachments LoonMaster! I couldn't tell, do the valves screw down on the neck some to lock it in place so the loons don't go flying around?

I think the pipe is 3mm OD / 2mm ID, need to get my vernier callipers out and measure them.

Yeah the adapters screw down on the balloon lip, which acts as a o-ring to stop air leaks and allows the balloon to inflate all the way to end without flying off

Oh cool, would you be willing to share the project files for it? Would love to get some of those printed so I can try them out as well! If not, no worries though!

Not sure if I’m going to make the file available yet or maybe sell them mounted as a set with the straws (and possibly the pump if needed). Need to do some maths on it all and see if it’s worth it. Just haven’t got the time at the moment.
