Anyone have one? We have 2 at work but they don’t have vacuum and have a nice top. They have lift assist devices that work great. You can raise or lower the top with one hand.

Hmmm, if I needed that type of fixture, I’d build one out of MDF and ”Kee Clamp

Vacuum lifting and positioning is an under-used concept. This is a fascinating rig, for sure!

Vacuum cups are used all over in the automation and industrial work-holding worlds. The cups are reasonable, but the pumps can get spendy.

It would take me 2 years just to learn how to operate it. :)

Cool bench. I have vacuum clamps. They are easy to make
if you have a vacuum pump, which is useful for veneering
too. One vacuum clamp I made is a right angle clamp
with vacuum gaskets on two faces so it can hold 2 cabinet
parts at right angles for putting screw or nails in. I also
use it to hold panels for sanding and to hold acoustic guitars
by the back.

Awesome bench. $7800….. I doubt I have that in all my tools. Never really considered vacuum.
