Subject : Covering hose hole
Posted : 2020-01-10 7:12 AM

I discovered something that may not be news to others. If I am veneering with a base inside the bag and the piece does not cover the hole where the hose fitting comes through, the vacuum cycles a lot. Placing a small block to bridge the hole this problem is eliminated. Could it be because the uncovered hole is acting as a diaphragm and is reacting to pressure?

You shouldn’t have to cover the hole to get good air evacuation if it is set up with the grooves going through the platen sleeve. I have attached a picture of how I set up my platens which is the way the instructions recommend
