1)    4” Dia PVC Vacuum Chuck 
with foam seal, specify 1” or 1 1/4” x 8 TPI threads. 
$60 Free shipping w/pump above

or order separately below

(2.7” and 5” Dia. also available) 
The secret to my system is a sealed bearing imbedded in the cup with a polyethylene extension tube that carries vacuum through the headstock. Eliminates vacuum leaks at threads and at outboard adapter, also it fits 99% of every lathe made

Note: Compatible with all outboard adapters, do not insert the headstock

extension tube.  Retain tube for use if traveling to a club demo, etc. 

2) Vacuum pump 3/8” ID hose connected to 3/8” OD polyethylene

tube exiting from head-stock.  No clamps needed-snug fit.

3) Vacuum cup with 150# (approx.) holding on square edge bowl.  
Plus bowl can be reversed for sanding and/or refinishing.
Try that with your Cole-Jaws or jam chucks.
