Luthier Thin Air Press - press only.



Add more Thin Air Press bags to your set of luthier vacuum laminating tools for multiple projects.

This product is to be used, once you have acquired a Luthier Kit and would like extra Luthier bags.

This 26 x 28" TAP bag does not connect with the manual pump. It has a Quick-Lock connector installed and must connect with the TUG External valve (included in the Luthier Kits) in order to pump the air out.


  • A 26 x 28" (66 cm x 71 cm) TAP bag
  • A Quick-Lock connector installed

How to use this product :

To be used with the breather netting, TUG External Valve and pump you already have.

  • Insert your glued veneers into the vinyl vacuum bag
  • Position the breather netting and seal the bag
  • Connect the 1/4" tubing to both Quick-Lock connectors (on the bag and the TUG External valve)
  • Place the manual pump onto the grey valve and pump the air out.

Before you glue up your veneers, a dry run is highly recommended!

FAQ : 

Where do I find out how to bend single sheets of veneer?

Is this reusable, and for how many times?

The kits are designed to be used many many times. With a little care and maintenance, the TAP Kits will last for years.

Will the glue stick to the bag?

PVA glue and epoxy will not stick to the bag. Any dried glue can be loosened with fingers and either shaken or blown out with a shop vac. Do not use polyurethane glue as it will damage the vinyl and ruin the bag.

How many pieces can I press at once?

You are limited by how fast your glue dries. If using slow-set epoxy, you have a generous amount of time to work before it starts to set. If using water-based glue such as Titebond III, you have about 7 minutes to get your project pressed before the glue dries. Dry glue will not bond together.

If the TAP Bag gets a hole in it, can I fix it? 

Clear 2” packing tape seals up any suspected punctures. Use a length of the butyl tape to fix any side seam gaps or splits. See instructions for more information.

What’s a “Dry Run” and why should I do that?

It means to press your project in the TAP bag, without putting any glue on the veneer sheets. Stack the dry sheets of veneer over the mold, seal them into the press with the breather netting in place, and pump the air out. Check for 10 minutes to make sure the TAP bag is not leaking. This will help you become familiar with the process before you commit glue to your veneer sheets.
