Rules

  1. Use for Large flat objects or small delicate objects, Not for glueing dimensional lumber
    • If clamps can be used to achieve your goal, please use them instead
  2. ALWAYS Check for sharp edges on your work pieces, as they can puncture (read: ruin) the bag
    • use the extra piece of plastic over any work piece that you are gluing or has sharp corners
    • it is best to sand or otherwise smooth all corners of your work piece as well
  3. Check to make sure that the vacuum has stabilized at 21 before you leave your work unattended for curing time
    • if the vaccum does not turn off after 10-15 minutes of run time there may be a leak in the gasket that attaches the vacuum pump
      • If the cure time on your piece is less than an hour you can let it run, however you cannot run the vacuum pump run continuously for longer than that as you may damage it
