The heart of the system is the pump to provide a consistant vacuum. The 1/4 hp Gast Vacuum Pump, is a pump that is great for lathe vacuum chucking. It pulls 26" of mercury (ample for lathe applications), has 4.5 CFM when open and features internal filters to keep wood dust out. The gast pump is an oil-less vane pump ensuring no environmental contamination, and runs at a relatively low noise level. The pump is wired with a 110V plug and needs to be plugged into a switched outlet strip. $15.00 will be added to regular S&H.
