Guys with a Vacuum Chuck
I just got a vacuum chuck setup and have used it twice. It works well but the vacuum pump emits a fine mist and Im wondering how others cope with that. Is it feasible to just put a towel over the exhaust or will that cause problems such as heating etc.? Any suggestions or sage advice?
Thanks, Ed

What you need is an inline water trap for the compressor

I wrapped a cloth with a zip tie around mine, been that way for a year or so now, no problems.

This is a common issue, there are dozens of different filters you can get.
Do a Google search for "Vacuum pump exhaust filter"
You can find them from about $15 on up over $150
