Let us know what you find out. I was thinking of running a 110 pump on it.

what about that ? : http://www.ebay.com/itm/Rao-s-High-Suct ... 3381b71d18

continus running pump ( word on the street is pumps can run continusly for around 2 years !! ) and this, and that's it

it does not turn on and of, does not bleed, it just gives the amount of vac you ask for, that's it....

maybe ad check valve and vac reserve and turn of yourself ? but, what do you think ?

finaly, got a used one on ebay, lab pump, with gauges and regulators ( needle valves but still, works ok ).

pulls 25 inch empty, could bring it to 22 inch on my first project ( hab one little leack could not find it ).

silent enought to hear leacks, oil consuming but put a hose to the outside, not problemmes.

could not find oil, got advise to buy valvoline oil from a gast tech support, works great ( user manual say's it gest to 20 inch, it get's to 25 actually ! youhou.

price 85 dollars, 35 shiping, 6 oil.
