I'm looking to do a cheap vacuum setup because I plan on making only a few boards this winter at a borrowed workshop. I live in an apartment right now so I can't justify expensive equipment yet.
The best I can come up with is this venturi vacuum pump from Harbor Freight ($15): http://www.harborfreight.com/air-vacuum
I already have a compressor that I can use with this.
Wondering if anyone has experience with this pump.
I was thinking about using it in conjunction with a 5 gallon tank that I already have, similar to: http://www.northerntool.com/shop/tools/
Any worries of the thing imploding at 28" of vacuum?
