Vacuum chuck question

Bud Gabaree
>Hey all,
has anyone out there used the E-Z vacuum adaptor advertised in both Packard and Craft Supplies?
If so, I have a few questions;
Is it necessary to use teflon tape on all of the threads, both for the adaptor and for the faceplate on the spindle?
Does the 3/8" all-thread pipe restrict volume so much that very little vac is left at the business end?
Lastly, how long should the various size cylinders be (the ones that fit into the grooves on the MDF faceplate)?
Any help or advice would be appreciated.
Thanks, Bud
