Vacuum Manifold Kit - Connects and Controls Vacuum Supply to Vacuum Chuck.
This beautiful 100% brass manifold provides a simple way to connect and control the vacuum supply to your vacuum chuck.
This kit includes everything needed to connect a Simple Woodturning Tools® vacuum chuck to a vacuum pump with 1/4 NPT female threads on the intake fitting. We do not sell vacuum pumps, however we recommend Robinar 15310 single stage 3 CFM pump, which can be purchased on Amazon.
