no  I give it 10 to 15 minutes to hold at 29.9 vac... the noise of the pump will also tell you if you have a leak ...I vac it for around 20 to 30 total...

I also use a 6cfm 3 stage pump.

Are these similar to the gauges you have Krazy?
Any chance you could show me the pump you have?

How often do you change the oil in that thing?
How do you change the oil in that?

The oil in the vacuum pump absorbs moister from the air and needs to be replaced.
I replace the oil each time my vacuum pump is used.

I never add or changed anythang in it. It behaves quite well if I don't lay it down or turn it over.
