Product Reviews

  1. Review from Kings Lynn, Norfolk, UK

    Review by Peter Threlfall

    Very neat little valve at an excellent price. Well packaged, arrived quickly and Joe did a great job shipping a large order to the UK.
    Would recommend Joe for all veneer issues.

  2. Review from Elmore, Ohio

    Review by Robert Baker

    My order for a Mac Valve and a Vacuum Controller were received two days after ordering. Every thing was was shipped together and carefully packed to prevent shipping damage. These items are for my back-up/assist vacuum system using a V2 Plus Vacuum Generator. This system along with with my five year old Veneer Supplies vacuum pump system will allow me to laminate larger and more complex shapes. The older vacuum pump system, uses many of the same components and after five years is still dependable and is using all of the original components. For the price you would be hard pressed to find a comparable vacuum system. I have recommended these products to several people who have shown an interest in the vacuum lamination process. If you have an inquiry or problem, email Joe and you will have a return answer within a day.

    Review by Cacy

    Built my press kit from Joe's plans and parts. Used an old but unused propane tank and added a red pilot light that indicates when the press is turned on. Works great.
