Vacuum Chuck Assembly

This vacuum chuck is designed from a combination of Oneway plans, Brad Adam's own design & on-the-spot adaptations. Parts were purchased from McMaster, Harbor Freight & Ace Hardware, however there are many other available resources.

Vacuum gauge assembly (parts as follows).

 

The tool rest banjo is used as the holder for the gauge assembly. A one-inch post turned from some hardwood was epoxied into the plywood. The flange was used to secure the gauge assembly to the plywood. For details and pictures,  Click Here.
