Can anyone help me with a tool I picked up last week?
Its a Gast 71R142-P075T-D300X Vacuum/Compressor that im planning on using for my vacuum chucking setup for my lathe.
It looks pretty straight forward as far as input and output connections but there is a bunch of plumbing set up for the compressor side. I have a couple pictures below that show some of it. There is a pressure gauge and relief valve. The things that I cant figure out are the square box on top that has all the power coming in and out (im assuming its a shut off or something) and the other is the round black cylinder under the box with orange tubs coming out of it.
My main goal is to have a nice, clean(hate my harbor freight pump!!!!) quiet and oil free vacuum pump. If I can gain a nice little compressor with a tank(think blowing dust off lathe, cleaning out hollow forms) then I would like to use both feature.
If anyone has experience with this set up and can offer some help that would be awesome!
