1st Spatial Filter leakage

Mike helped us fix the vacuum pump for the first Spatial Filter of TWINAMP, however we found there was a big leak from the vacuum pipes. We checked the pipes step by step, firstly found one of the O-ring was broken, then small holes around the vacuum pipes. After replacing the O-ring and gluing the leaks, the vacuum reached about 10 mTorrs.
