Has anybody seen or used the Venturi Vacuum System w/Air Compressor Adapter? Fairly inexpensive way to have a vacuum clamping system?

I talked to my veneer guy about these. He has a couple of these systems for small bag projects as he liked to call em. He liked them for their simplicity. For clamping I"d be very interested as well in various application possibilities....

I received the ad from Infinity Tools. Cost is about $80 which seemed reasonable. It attaches to a compressor....another use for the compressor.

You're going to need a big air compressor, since these require several CFM for the whole time that you need vacuum. A real vacuum pump will be much cheaper to operate, and a necessity if you will be vacuum veneering because of the long drying times that will require full vacuum levels. For clamping, you might get away with using one if you will only require vacuum for short periods, but the real vacuum pump would be the better way to go if you will be doing this often.

I'm agreeing with Stick.
