So, I have made my own vacuum line bearing for the vacuum chuck on my lathe, as pictured here:
What I am wondering, is if anyone would be interested in a step-by-step plan on how to make this bearing, which can be made for under $25?
Or, if making one isn’t your idea of fun, having me make one for you? (I know this isn’t the right forum for selling stuff, I’ll make a new thread if that is actually of interest)
It’s a simple piece to make, and anyone with a lathe shouldn’t have any trouble at all making one.
I have a full materials list with part numbers, prices and where to purchase the parts, all of which should be able to be purchased locally.
It consists of a sealed bearing, a hose barb and pipe-thread reducer fitting and some Corian.
You can get the Corian for FREE by ordering a sample from HERE Simply choose the color you want, click on it, select a 4”x4” sample and click “add to cart”, then go to the check out. If you are a “business” (you are a business, right!), you qualify for free shipping. You can also order up to 4 samples at a time, so make the most of it!
So, if anyone is interested, let me know and I’ll post a blog with all the instructions, pictures, part numbers and anything else you may need.
Or, if you want to purchase one from me, let me know and I’ll whip one up for you. I’m not sure, but price will likely be around $25, maybe a bit more or less.
