This vacuum pump is intended for use with the Centroform Vacuum Forming Machine.
It is important to maintain the oil level and change the oil. Follow instructions in the manual (attached to this page) for doing so. Do not overfill. Ask me how I know!
Vacuum pumps require specific vacuum service oil, see the manual for recommended brand/type.
The manual recommends replacing the oil after every use. This is likely excessive, but if the vacuum former hasn't been used for some time, it's likely a good idea to drain and replace the oil.
