    Homemade vacuum veneer press (with pump from freecycle)

    I use a home made screw press for veneering and a vacuum system using Vacuvin wine saver hand pumps. A hand pump and two non return stoppers cost £8 from Amazon. This system is suitable for veneering and laminate forming, a very cheap solution for the hobbyist.

    I have the wixey angle setting device which is very accurate and the device for measuring the distance from the fence to the blade on my contractors saw and that too is accurate. Perhaps you have just been unlucky?
