Vacuum Chuck filter
Jun 8th, 2017 at 3:34pm
 
I recently got and put together a vacuum chuck for my Jet 1642 lathe. The vacuum pump I bought had an intake fitting which had some sort of a filter including a mesh screen. In order to make the fitting work with my setup I had to replace the brass fitting in the intake port of the VP. The filter that was in the original fitting will not fit in the new fitting. I was, however able to keep the small mesh screen,  I think the pump should have some sort of filter as the shop is a rather dusty environment. Any suggestions or ideas about what type or brand, etc. I should use?
Thanks, Ed

I have been using a automotive gasoline filter for years. Got it at the local auto store.

+1 that's what I use as well, mine has a clear cover, have yet to see any foreign material in it yet.
