What would I need for a vacuum chuck if I had an air compressor?
I believe you're talking about a venturi vacuum pump. Here's a company that seems to have a large line of them http://www.air-vac-store.com/mm5/merchant.mvc?Screen=CTGY&Store_Code=AS&Category_Code=VP
I don't personally have any experience with that type of pumps so I can't really offer advice. I'm sure if you contact the company above or someone else that sells them you would be able to find out a lot about that type of system.
We have had good luck with this pump over the years so that might be worth considering. - https://www.amazon.com/Robinair-15310-VacuMaster-Single-Vacuum/dp/B005CO9GX6/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1511966035&sr=8-3&keywords=vacuum+pump+robinair
Sorry I can't be more helpful on this. If you have any further questions please let me know.
