Here is everything you need to preform all types of vacuum chucking with your woodturning lathe.

 

This is the best was to finish turn the bottom foot from a wood plate or platter or bowl on your woodturning lathe.

Excellent for knocking off the nib of wood after you turn a sphere by hand or using a sphere ball cutting radius jig.

Works fantastic for quickly sanding then applying a finish to a bowl using vacuum.

Once you start to explore all that you can do with a vacuum chuck you will wonder how you ever did any work without one.

Optional Vacuum Generator (add above in the options section)

Hold Fast Vacuum Generator (Requires an air compressor) - Now more vacuum and more vacuum volume as you increase air pressure up to 85PSI

  • Vacuum Generator Specs
    • Supply air at 90psi allows you to increase air pressure resulting in increased vacuum and vacuum volume by turning the regulator knob.
    • Typical vacuum at 70PSI= 21"hg
    • Typical vacuum at 85PSI = 25"hg
    • Typical vacuum volume at 85PSI =  .6CFM
    • Compressed air consumption = 1.2 CFM @ 85PSI
    • Note: as the air pressure increases from 70 to 85psi so does the air consumption from your air compressor making it cycle more often.

Made in the USA

Optional Reverse Chuck Adapter (add above in the options section)
High quality tool which is self centering making it simple to mount a work piece onto your vacuum chuck.
