Turning Archive 2008
>Kicking around adding vacuum to my setup, and I wondered the following:
1.) If I make spoons, can I make a tiny vacuum setup to hollow the bowls? Too little surface area to hold securely?
2.) 4" big enough for most bowls? 6"?
3.) How much vacuum do you need to pull to hold something? What's a good source for the parts?
4.) I assume I can use the same pump setup for flatwork veneering?
5.) I envision the chuck being a well sealed piece of MDF turned round with a depression on a small faceplate. Gasket material on the front only... anything else?
