New Vacuum De-Gassing Chamber

A project log for Modular Continuous Track System

A inexpensive modular tank track system that can be used for robotic and radio controlled vehicles.

Well I finished construction on my new vacuum chamber. The one I have been using is actually my friends and I was getting tired of moving it around all the time. I picked up a vacuum pump from harbor freight with one of those 20% off coupons. It is a 3 CFM, two stage, oil pump. Here is a picture of the specs.

The chamber is made from a section of 6" CPVC pipe that I had left over from another project. I cut it to 6.5" in length and then turned the ends smooth on a lathe. It functions just the same as the larger one I was borrowing, but pulls a vacuum a little faster because there is less volume inside. I am only vacuum degassing about 250 ml at a time, so the other chamber had a bunch of empty space.

If you want more details on building a vacuum degassing chamber, or just a vacuum chamber in general. I created a separate project for this on

This project looks great. I'm also thinking to start the similar project for my new website that cover the coupons deal. You can see here some detail
