i figured that out the hard way…thats why i never run a vacuum pump without a way of shutting it down.
I’d about 100% say without a doubt that the vacuum in the oven pulled the oil straight in the oven.
I don’t know if the short path has the vacuum volume say an oven has. But I didn’t want to risk anything for such a small cost.
Edit. I’m not saying my way is right either. This is my first time running a short path. I’m no expert. I just saw what a lot of these more expensive priced systems had and thought if I could implement something similar in my budget. Well then I was gonna try.
Please just take this thread as a learning experience rather than a way of doing something or not doing something.
