This is a vacuum system I made (with the help of JoeWoodworker.com) to vacuum press my veneer and marquetry projects. I live in the Cincinnati area, where we hope someday to have a winning football team, which is where the orange and black stripes came from as decoration on the pump system. I have ganged 2 pumps via a pressure regulator and mac valve system with a reserve system of vac tanks underneath. Being the cautious type, I have wrapped the tanks in vinyl black tape in case they decide to implode for some strange reason.
