    Just never crossed my mind before

    I had a small veneer project to do, 4 pieces about 6X6, and was planning on just clamping as usual, when it occurred to me that I could vacuum clamp them using my wife's Seal-a-meal food bagger. Got everything set up, used Weldwood plastic resin glue, stacked the pieces together an sealed them in the bag. Pics to follow after the glue sets up.

    Sounds like a great idea for smaller pierces. What's the biggest bag available with the Seal-A-Meal?

    I've used my Foodsaver vacuum sealer to do several small projects. Works Great!

    The quart bag is about 8"x12". But you can get a roll that is 8" x 18 feet so I guess you could laminate a flag pole if you're determined.

    BTW.......the veneer came out great, will post pics when the project is done.

    There's also an 11" X 18' roll - for even fatter flagpoles.
