Reduction of clamping times; clamping process is affected by turning a lever - this means clamping and release times of 1 second.
Obstruction Free Woodworking
All surfaces (except clamped surface) can be machined in one operation, meaning you have clear surface and edges to work on without the hindrance of clamps or cramps - allows single-pass all-edge routing, planing, batten free belt sanding, panel trimming, biscuiting and templating.
No damage incurred on workpieces i.e. from vice or clamps - vacuum holding provides a uniform pressure on the clamping surface of the workpiece that leaves no marking or damage - no need for tacking, gluing or taping which can also mar components.
Manual Router Templating
Vacuum work beds when used with vacuum templates for routing offer woodworkers the fastest manual component replication method available. If you need to make repeat pattern components on a regular basis then a vacuum work bed should by virtue of necessity be a serious contender for your next buy. Why spend your time clamping when you could be routing!
Versatile Engineering Applications
The U-Mach can be used to vacuum grip more than just wood and fiberboard. It can clamp plastics, glass, ceramics, carbon, graphite and a range of metals for machining, abrading or polishing where lateral hold is required.
Simple build with complete guide, approximately 4 hours construction time.
