Thanks for the info. Vaughn is right as I don't have 220v in my shop. I would have to upgrade my electrical panel as well as have wiring run. It would be pretty costly to have this done. Should have did it 20 yrs ago but didn't have the money then and now that I am retired not sure I want to spend it now.
On the other hand I found a guy that puts these together and I think I will get a new unit from him with gauge and filter for $214 shipped. Also he is putting together a kit (hose, bleeder valve, barbed connectors, etc) I think he said for $60. No matter which vacuum I get I am also getting from him a precision hand wheel kit for my Nova DVR XP which will then fit the vacuum adapter that just slips into the hand wheel kit. I will also get a hand wheel kit for my Jet 1220. Then I just pop the vacuum adapter off one lathe and plug it into the other since I will be putting the vacuum chucking system on a cart. These are precision made and yes pricey at $200 for the two hand wheel kits and the adapter.
So I think we will give it a try and go from there. Thanks again to all.
