This Production press features two 12"x12"work tables that work independently of each other using the control valves, while using the same built in surge tank and one single low cfm vacuum pump.
These Vacuum presses are handmade and are built to perform and last.
Check out the Vaccum press details Below:
3/8" Ball valve to direct the vacuum to the table,
1/4"Ball valve to release the vacuum hold from the table.
