The Thin Air Press Kits: A simple and effective way to vacuum-laminate layers of veneer into skateboards and other bent wood projects. Several sizes are available.The press is re-usable.
Our Thin Air Press Kit products are ideal for building boards, such as skateboards and skimboards, wood projects, musical instruments and more.
The Thin Air Press kit is an inexpensive and reusable introduction to the vacuum technology process and can be used for a variety of different projects from laminating skateboard decks, building furniture wood components for woodworkers, building composite wings for model aircrafts and musical instruments.
The TAP vacuum bag, is made of sturdy 20 mil vinyl that will not leak. Using this system there is no need to keep an electrical pump running continuously until your vacuum project is set. The hand vacuum pump connects to a one-way valve on the TAP bag.
Our pump produces more than enough pressure for most forms of laminating, easily exerting 15 psi of pressure onto your project. This is equal to most electric vacuum pumps used for composite or veneer vacuuming.
All components of this kit are reusable many times over and epoxy and PVA glues will not stick to the bag.
