Vacuum Pump Volume Question

Clem Wixted
>Would a vacuum pump that is designed for drawing a vacuum on air conditioning systems be compatible with woodworking use?

These units seem small but can pull over 29 inches of mercury (specs say 29.9 inches!).

The small part (of the pump, maybe 1/8 hp) is my concern or is vacuum more inportant than volume?
