Thin Air Press Kit 26x28"

The Thin Air Press Kit 26 x 28'' (66 cm x 71 cm) is a simple and inexpensive innovation for pressing multiple projects.

The kit can be re-used many times, and other sizes are available to suit your project.

This size of press is ideal for small projects, such as jewellery, small woodworking projects, marquetry and more. 

Easy to use, no power required. 

The Thin Air Press Kit 26x28 contains:

  • a 26x28 vinyl vacuum bag with a one-way valve positioned in the center
  • seal attached
  • a low-volume high-pressure manual vacuum hand pump
  • breather netting
  • extra sealing tape
  • illustrated instructions and maintenance sheet.

How to use this product:

  • Insert your glued veneers (and mold) into the heavy-duty vinyl vacuum bag
  • position the breather netting under the valve
  • seal the bag
  • connect the manual pump and in less than a minute, extract the air out
  • wait for your project to dry in the press

Watch as it generates enough pressure to press layers of veneer into a 3-dimensionally project.

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


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. 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 info. 

Do the valves leak?

While many people assume air is leaking back through the valve, they are made of cast rubber and almost never leak. The most common problem with slow leakage is the open-end seal tape. If the seal is not properly closed up (check both sides) you will lose vacuum. If the top cap of the valve is not compromised with dust and debris, the valve will not leak.

Do you refund my veneer if the pressing doesn't work?

Sorry, we don't offer reimbursement for these types of problems.

Whats 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.

    Everything is perfect. Works very well for my application.

    Very good product, used for violin making, for laminated archtops or ribs. The only drawback is that the sealant may not be the most practical, especially for the opening, it's a bit of a handful, but it works perfectly. (Translated review)
