It has everything you need to use it.The gen,hose and 6" Vac cup and like said.it works great.You will need a compressor with at least 2.5 cfm.

Any way you could post a pic of all the stuff? Definitely interested. Does the setup you have use that venturi setup that requires an air compressor rather than being a diaphragm vacuum pump?

Barry, thanks for the info. I looked at the setup and will pass on that one. I didn't want to have to plug my compressor into it. Thanks for the offer, though.

Here is a huge advantage to vacuum. With any type of jaws you have to sand and finish the rim before reversing the piece. It is extremely difficult to make the transition blend in. Despite my best efforts you can still see a line. It must not be very noticeable because several people have looked at the finished piece and haven't noticed. A vacuum chuck leaves the whole underside clear to work with.

You can easily use thick CA glue to attach a waste block inside your bowl. Use it to hold on to while finishing the whole outside of your bowl. Leave a very small rim base to chuck to and finish the inside. Hit the waste block with a hammer to pop it off. No need for a vacuum or the Longworth.
