Scout Vacuum Adapter

$ 109.00

A vacuum adapter is the rotary coupling needed to connect a vacuum hose to the lathe spindle.  The Scout vacuum adapter has a Morse Taper shank that fits into either end of the spindle and has a O-ring for extra sealing.  The threads for the fittings are standard ¼” NPT (National Pipe Thread), available online or at any hardware store. This is the only part of the vacuum system we sell.

There are a number of good online resources that show how to set up a vacuum system.  One Robust recommendation: get an actual vacuum pump instead of a vacuum generator that runs on compressed air.  Vacuum pumps are quieter, more reliable, and generally pull a higher vacuum.
