That is all a vacuum pump is. A compressor pulling the air on intake side. A pump is a pump. If it will pump to 25psi it will vacuum to 25 psi. The only difference is the switch instead of psi it is inches of vacuum.

EDIT: Found a guide for making a vacuum pump for under $50 just replace that compressor with a convertible top compressor. And presto instant vacuum pump. Homemade Vacuum Pump
