Found this at a garage sale last weekend.

Marked Vacuum Filler.

It's missing a few of the endy bits, but it's in nice shape.

Any ideas as to how to get the blue (ink residue?) out of the cap...?

You may have found an early and sought after Ripley Vacumatic:

If the cap is intact, I'd be happy to buy. The blue is intrinsic, not staining.

Folks, my apologies for the light-hearted approach to this five-dollar find.

I was indeed aware that it was a Ripley and that the blue was not a result of ink stains.

(In fact, it seems to have been last filled with black ink, rather than blue!).

I tried repeatedly to photograph the excellent clarity of the barrel; I failed repeatedly!

 

As Sam said, "Fail again, fail better!"
