Default Air compressor vacuum pump

Is there any way to make a air compressor in to a vacuum pump? I thought I red it in the past,but was curious if it is possible,and if so, have any of you done it yourself?

For whatever reason I can't see your picture at the end of your post. So do a search on here for lunch box vacuum releaser and also search through Haynes Forest Products and Lastwoodsman post and come back and tell give us a little more info on what style your looking at. The lunch box is powered by an air compressor. The ones that you will see on Lastwoodsman are air compressor tanks converted to vacuum pumps systems.

I think what is being asked here is if here can reverse an air compressor more to create a vacuum pump from it. Or to reverse the intake and outlet so instead of blow it sucks

I do not think it would hold up to continuous running, it will overheat.
