    I've got a 3m x 2m cnc that came (2nd hand) with a 9 zone vacuum bed but no pump. Up until now I've just used screws/clamps as hold downs but I'd like to get the vacuum bed up and running. Can anyone advise me on what size/type of pump to look for?

    You need a high flow type,not the sort of thing used for vacuum gluing of laminates.The power consumption my shock you for that size machine,it may exceed the spindle power.You might browse this page for references to work from: https://www.buschvacuum.com/uk/en/
