Hi All.
I can send the PDF to anyone wanting one but perhaps a moderator could PM me with a email address and the PDF can be posted for all to see by a moderator?

Hello Peter, you mentioned that you make your own seals as well, do you have a tutorial for that as well ??  I did make a seal from the article in the AAW mag. It does work when  I initially tried it but have not given it a full working as of yet.
I will post when I have done so.

Thanks
James

Hello Everyone.
Thanks to Ron for posting my tutorial on building your vacuum chucks.  It is posted in the TPT board.
I do make the Silicone vacuum chuck seals and sell them for $5.00 each plus shipping.
The seals are made to fit PVC pipe in three sizes,  1.5". 2". And 3".  I also just developed one to fit a white PVC Coupler,  I think the diameter is 5.5".
Note the pictures and just imagine how perfect they are at getting a good seal.
Good luck with making your own vac chucks....
Peter F.
