    Vacuum chuck?

    Does anyone know of anybody that has made a vacuum chuck for a lathe with a solid shaft. I can get the vacuum side but need information for the adaptor for a 3/4 x 16tpi shaft

    I know Bill Grumbine sells an adaptor for lathes with a solid spindle. You can see some info about it partway down this page:
