Purchasing vacuum chamber and pump?

Discussion in 'Molding and Casting' started by loneleaf, Aug 9, 2012.

  1. I am looking to purchase a vacuum pot and pump not sure where to start looking or if anyone has suggestions of manufactures to look into. I don't want to build my own and would rather purchase one from a reliable company, any thoughts or recommendations would be appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Casey

    They usually have some pretty nice ones on ebay and some come as a set.

    You can also retrofit a pressure pot into a vac chamber, if you happen to have an extra one- that's what I did, and just bought the vacuum pump.
