    What for? Harbor Freight has a vacuum pump for under $20.00.And HF also carries a cheap suction style sprayer wand for drawing soap,etc thru it. Any Y should work,just not a T.

    Attach a T fitting (3/8" barb) to a blow gun.

    Attach the hose to the bottom fitting.

    When you depress the blow gun, the air shooting accross the T will create a vacuum causing the hose to suck up whatever you want.

    Just remember that it will now be sprayed onto whatever you're pointing the gun at.

    those cheap plastic suction pumps suck...tried a T air just comes out both ends...need a Y sweep...regular Y air comes out both ends too

    If you shoot air across the top of the T, there will be a vacuum created at the bottom of the T.

    You may need to restrict the hose end down a touch. (1/4)

    Rob a Compressor out of a fridge, you will have all the vacuume you need. You google some exotic plans if needed.
