Product Description


Get multiples of this size bag for production work, or as a replacement or addition to your other sizes.

Useful for schools and groups and garage builders and woodworkers who require multiple bags so that more than one project can be made during the same gluing session. The kit can be re-used many times, and with a little care and maintenance, can last for hundreds of pressings.

It can be used for any smaller projects, by carefully folding the extra, unused vinyl so that most of the air is removed.

Specs/Details:

  • Contains: a 20x70" vinyl vacuum bag with a seal and a one-way valve. The valve can be positioned in the center (for most wood projects) or off-set for wet resin (epoxy) pressings.


How to use this product:
  • Insert your glued veneers (and mold) into the heavy-duty vinyl vacuum bag, position the breather netting under the valve, seal the bag, connect the Super Pump and extract the air out. Watch as it generates enough pressure to press 7, 8 or even 9 layers of maple into a 3-dimensionally shaped skateboard.
  • Before you glue up your veneers, a dry run is highly recommended!


Maintenance:
  • Tips are included on the maintenance sheet included with the kit
  • Keep your TAP bag working efficiently by keeping the sealing tape clean, replacing the paper strip back after each use
  • If you suspect leaks in the vinyl, inspect it regularly and use clear packing tape to stop up any possible leaks
  • Ensure your valve has not lifted away from its base, and that the top cap is free of any sawdust, foam bits or glue
  • Handle and store your TAP bag so that nothing sharp can puncture it


FAQs:
  • Q: Is this reusable, and for how many times? A: The kits are designed to be used many many times. With a little care and maintenance, the TAP Kits will last for years.
  • Q: Will the glue stick to the bag? A: PVA glue and epoxy will not stick to the bag. Any dried glue can be loosened with fingers and either shaken or blown out with a shop vac.
  • Q: How many boards can I press at once? A: One board at a time. You are limited by how fast your glue dries. Once you start spreading water-based glue on the veneer sheets, you have about 7 minutes to get them pressed before the glue dries. Dry glue will not bond together.
  • Q: If the TAP Bag gets a hole in it, can I fix it? A: Clear 2" packing tape seals up any suspected punctures. Use a length of the butyl tape to fix any side seam gaps or splits.
  • Q: Do the valves leak? A: While many people assume air is leaking back through the valve, they are made of cast rubber and almost never leak. The most common problem with slow leakage is the open-end seal tape. If the seal is not properly closed up (check both sides) you will lose vacuum. If the top cap of the valve is not compromised with dust and debris, the valve will not leak.
  • Q; What's a "Dry Run" and why should I do that? A: It means to press your project in the TAP bag, without putting any glue on the veneer sheets. Stack the dry sheets of veneer over the mold, seal them into the press with the breather netting in place, and pump the air out. Check for 10 minutes to make sure the TAP bag is not leaking. This will help you become familiar with the process before you commit glue to your veneer sheets.
