vacuum pump recommendations?

Postby NL7U » Fri Sep 22, 2017 8:12 pm

I bought a set of Rockler vacuum table components. Now I just need advice as to which vacuum pump will be reliable. I am leaning towards ROBINAIR single stage due to it's name brand and price.

Any advice? Thanks.

Looks like it must be too new to have any takers so far here....let us know what you find out, as I'm sure others will jump onboard eventually. I thought I saw them being used, and there was a pump that came in one of the kits?

Cheers!

Tony what components did you get to make the vacuum table? I have thought about putting one on my hd4.

You can buy the vacuum pods from rockler or make your own. Make one 6 x 9 and put gasket material around the edges and drill a hole in the center and put a clear 3/8 hose in there and hooked up to the pump. I'm not at home so no pics to show you, on my computer at home.
