    Does anyone know of any plans for constructing a vacuum easel? I have been checking out ebay, but have only found giant ones.

    Brian, Bostick and Sullivan have plans for constructing a vacuum frame on their web site. Looks to be fairly straightforward if you have carpentry skills.
    Art is a step from what is obvious and well-known toward what is arcane and concealed.

    What size vacuum frame are you looking for?
    Also, if all you have is a vacuum easel, a sheet of mylar that covers the entire easel will effectively make a vacuum frame out of it. Just position your materials with the vacuum on and carefully lay the mylar down rolling from one side to the other and then wipe the air bubbles out with a very soft lint free cloth. This has the added benefit of transmitting a very high percentage of UV light.

    Oh, add this note. Center the materials to be contact printed instead of aligning to the corners, otherwise you will lose vacuum at the edge.
