Here is a brief review on setting up vacuum chucking systems. A lot depends on how much money you want to spend. Some time and plumbing to your individual machine is needed and there is probably no real plug and play options. Any commercial HVAC pump with at least a 4cfm rating will do. Higher cfm pumps are available, but are more expensive. The important thing with vaccuum pumps is you must change the oil regularly.
Depending on what lathe you are going to hook up to, the attachment to the lathe may vary; make sure the attachment is either same vendor as the lathe or advertised for you lathe.
Here is a complete autocycling system, minus the pump itself. This site gives lots of information on vacuum systems, aimed primarily on veneer users, but quite applicable to our use in turning. Hope this gets you started
