    Connecting Vacuum to Gerber Sabre

    Hi All

    I've purchased a second hand Gerber Sabre 408 router. It came with a vacuum generator that connects to the table. Unfortunately, it was disconnected when the machine was decommissioned 4 years ago. I can't find any documentation on how to reconnect.

    If anyone has one of these machines, would you mind letting me know how to wire it into the table. There is a seimens controller on the side of the router. I believe that this is somehow related to the vacuum pump.

    Thanks in advance.

    We have ours wired to a separate switch. As far as I know there is no hookup to the control in any way.

    Don't know what the Siemens controller is for.
