I Just Had To Share The Excitement!
I was getting ready to pull a project out of the vacuum press and I decided this would be the perfect time to shoot a test video for my new audio equipment. Besides that, popping the vacuum press open is one of my favorite moments in the shop - and now you get to share in it!
In this video, I do not get specifically into the step-by-step of bent lamination and using the vacuum press, but it is highly informative. You will get to see the actual moment a project is pulled out of the vacuum press and the information I share is good context based, working knowledge for bent lamination procedure and product.
This video shows a good example of how a vacuum press might be used. The vacuum press is a great tool to have in the shop. It has opened many doors for me since it allows for easy clamping of projects in a way that standard clamps cannot. The vacuum press really made veneer work a much more simple and lower risk procedure in my shop.
