Improvised Vacuum Desiccator

All of my glassware is specifically for vacuum distilation, so I decided to make myself a desiccator. Its fairly simple: the sample that you want to dry hangs in a piece of filter paper over a desiccant. The paper is attatched to a vacuum take of side arm and is placed over the desiccant in a round bottomed flask. A valve is attached to the vacuum take of and a vacuum is pulled on the apparatus. While the pump is still on, he valve is closed. When the pump is turned off the glass still holds a decent vacuum. I'll include a picture, although I won't load it with desiccant.
