Hello, I wonder if anyone would be able to point me in the right direction. Ive recently
purchased vacuum and air pens for my workbench. Ive been looking for a pump which can handle both vacuum and air pressure. Im hoping to get a single machine that can handle both. Similar to the Bergeon 6100 but at a more reasonable $1200 or less.

Both Gast and Thomas make diaphragm compressor/ vacuum pumps, piston compressor/ vacuum pumps, and rotary vane compressor/ vacuum pumps.

This site will help you spec out a Gast unit:

Compressors & Vacuum Pumps | Gast Manufacturing


This site for Thomas units:

Thomas Official | Vacuum Pumps, Compressors and Liquid Pumps



There are many Thomas and Gast units on the big interweb auction site.

Good luck,

Thank you for the reply. I was looking at a similar Colman Parmer pump. Is was worried not having constant pressure might be an issue. Is this type of pumped widely used?

I think they re used more for vacuum than pressure.
You could always add a small suitable storage tank to your system. You would either need a pressure switch to shut off the compressor at max storage pressure or an appropriate pressure relief valve to vent the tank.
