I recently put together a vacuum press from JoeWoodworker.com and was thinking it could be used as a food saver vacuum as well. My vacuum is the venturi model which hooks up to my air compressor. My primary concern is the moisture that will be getting sucked out of the bag and into my vacuum unit. Any ideas on how to avoid moisture problems? I contacted Joe and he didn’t know of any kind of filter but guessed there was one out there somewhere.

Thanks.

For food, you don’t need continuous vacuum over a long time. I’d think a decent wet/dry shop vac would work.

Thanks Gene. I saw the wet/dry vac as an option but I would like to put a bit more vacuum pressure into each bag and have an option that is easier and quieter to use in the kitchen.

Hmmm, I was thinking just the opposite, using a food saver as a veneer press!!
