I have one of those hand vacuum pumps I picked up for a couple bucks. It's the Houdini brand which is square so it does not fit into a bung as, I understand the vucu vin does. I found that the bottle cork part fit snuggly over the inner tube of one of my air locks. It was too big for a few but perfect on one. It's a little awkward to pump at first but it does work great. It was pulling a good vacuum and holding it for a bit. Check out the foam. It'll work till I can justify the aspirator pump.

Looks like a good deal for now.
I have an Oneida wine saver vaccuum, I use it the same way. Over an airlock tube. But I degas with a drill mounted mix stir at first.
