Notes from Joe:
Will the vacuum clamping add-on work with the Excel 1™ or Excel 5™ systems?
It is not designed for those systems but there is an alternate system which will work. Contact us for details.
Can I vacuum clamp porous materials with this add-on kit?
It depends on the porosity of the material. Porous materials such as oak, walnut, MDF, and particle board will leak a lot of vacuum and will cause the vacuum system to run more frequently or continuously.
Does the clamping area on my work bench have to be non-porous for this system to hold vacuum?
Yes. If the work bench is a porous surface such as oak, walnut, MDF or particle board, then the vacuum press system will run very frequently or continuously.
