As i’ve lost all access to the veneer press at college and not being able to afford a vacuum press i’ve been looking at book-binders (or nipping) presses.
...which are still several hundred pounds.
Plan B:- make one.
I have no real plan for this, just a general idea. Here we go.
The top, bottom and press are made out of any sheet material i could find.
Cut it up, stick it back together to make thicker boards and trim to size (400mm x 300mm)
At this point i actually have to spend money. £18 for a shoulder vice thread. Attach this to the bits, and lay them out to see how things are looking.
Next its time to build the frame that’ll keep these bits in place.
