Stabilizing setup
« on: August 14, 2014, 03:38:43 PM »
Just got my chamber in today and wanted to show it to you guys, and see what other people were using.

Harbor freight vacuum pump, I got it for 35 bucks at a garage sale. I was skeptical it would even pull 25hg...


Here's the chamber, I got it from a company called "Slick Vac Seal" This chamber is really quality (to me atleast) And they shipped it in 3 days!!
 

This is the part that surprised me, at around 800 feet above sea level, I figured with a good pump I couldn't even pull 29.5 hg... With my cheapo pump I got this!!!!!!  Right out of the box!

Looks like you're off to a great start.  Will definitely be interested to hear how stabilizing goes once you get some resin and some soft punky wood!   :bigup:

If you go to the turkey section and go to the post "Stabilized Spalted Maple" you can see one. I have only done 2 other blanks and I haven't turned them yet.

Thats a nice looking setup you've got there! I have been thinking about getting a chamber and pump for a while and you might have pushed me over the edge!
