Vacuum Cups, Plate & Rotating Unions

The Vicmarc Vacuum Chucking system has been designed to aid in Woodturning.  It Enables an item to be re-mounted on the lathe for finishing without risking further holding marks.  The Rotating Unions are fitted with two ball bearings which enables the lathe spindle turn freely while the hose, and connection remain stationary.

Rotating Unions

Rotating Unions, V01216 and V01217 can be mounted directly to a self-centring four jaw chuck by clamping on the provided dovetail or they can be mounted directly to the lathe spindle.  To do this you will need to select the respective chuck Insert (VM120/150) to suit your lathe.  Two ball bearings prevent the hose from spinning.

The Rotating Union M16 x 1.5 screws into the outboard side of the lathe and connects to the vacuum hose.  Two ball bearings prevent the hose from spinning.

All the above vacuum accessories can be used with a normal household vacuum cleaner or a vacuum pump provided it has a flow rate of at least 3.2 m3/h (1.9 cfm). If using a vacuum pump be cautious not to set the pressure too high as this will result in possible damage to the bearing seals in the Rotating Union. Always start with low pressure and work your way up to a desired pressure.
