    That would make an excellent vacuum chuck for a wood lathe.

        Good looking setup there.I used 6" long 3/8" bolts with the ends sharpened to a point on my sled and then stations every 5".Works great.

          There are all sorts of possibilities for vacuum chucking besides the lathe.
          You could build a board of sorts almost like a down draft but instead of sucking sawdust you use it to hold down parts of all sizes for routing etc. just cover the unused holes to reduce vacuum leaks.

            You have no idea how many times I have wished I had a vacuum board like yours. Most recently was making the wooden locks. How much easier it would have been to round over the edges if I had a vacuum hold down board.

            Carl, here is a link to a write up on making a vacuum lathe chuck. This is just one link out of many on the Internet dealing with lathe vacuum chucks.

                I've been using the bags from Amazon and a heat gun my wife bought when she was a preschool teacher. Unless you are wrapping of small parts, you don't need a sealer. Just fold it over and hold it with a small piece of scotch tape on the back. After you shrink it it's sealed enough to keep everything...

                My process is a bit different. Since I am using heat shrink bags when you seal the open end you trap a lot of air in them. When you start to heat the bag to shrink it you create a large bubble. I continue to heat the bag until it does pop a hole. I have been doing this for years. The shrink wrap...

                None Linda. You need to find the right heat temp so it shrinks but doesn’t put a hole in the wrap but the tape doesn’t shrink or tear.

                What thickness of film seems to work the best for puzzles?
                The bags seem easier on the surface.
                But the film seems like it is more versatile on size variations.

                Regulations are 150 square feet, this will be 144 square feet so we are good. He’s making it that size Since the sheets are 4’ wide. And the Shelves need to be 4” above my head!! It will be very specific.
