This is a complete BestValueVac vacuum chamber setup designed built and 100% tested in Naperville, Illinois. With the unique patent pending gasket design (Utility Patent #14/533,548) this chamber is sure to last 10,000 uses with proper care and maintenance. The gasket itself is reversible (doubling the life of the system) allowing customers to instantly take it off and flip it over. Every chamber is tested prior to shipping to lose no more than 2.5Hg/24hrs.
Glass Vac Vacuum Chambers are ideal for woodworkers and pen turners using the wood stabilization process because the glass lid will not deteriorate like acrylic or polycarbonate lids. ( Chamber only, Vacuum Pump not included.)

The Internal Dimensions - 8" Tall x 10.5" Diameter are of the Glass Vac Chamber itself.
A 4 pen blank mold should fit into this chamber. But please keep in mind this chamber is a vacuum chamber, used for (among other things) stabilizing wood. Usually a pen blank mold is used in conjunction with a pressure pot.
Very good point!!! I measured the depth to the fitting, it is 5.5". When you draw a vacuum, it will bubble, so the liquid will probably top that fitting. I do not know what effect that might have. I will research it with BVV and try to get a more precise answer for you. Thanks for bringing it up!!!
Yes. All of the Glass Vac line is designed to be used with wood stabilizing resins. Cactus Juice, BVV Stabilizing Resin, TMI Stabilizing Resin, etc will all work great with this chamber. These Glass Vac chambers have a glass lid which the stabilizing solutions will not craze. I hope that helps! - Dawn
