You will find all the information you need here: http://www.joewoodworker.com/
I purchased a kit and you can find my review here: http://lumberjocks.com/reviews/4094

Using a vacuum press opens whole new worlds in terms of design capabilities and challenges.
Best of luck.

Build your own, either one with a pump (the rebuilt ones from Joe are good as well as inexpensive) or a venturi using one of Joe’s plans. I’ve had mine for about 7 years (rebuilt pump) and it really works well. One suggestion: start off with the polyurethane bags, they are so superior to the vinyl it’s worth the extra cost.
