    I was just at Wal Mart earlier and saw a screw in muffler that can be used for less than $2. That and the insulation will make it purr like a Mercedes.

    Jim are you using the vacuum easel for contact prints? With or without glass, I'm not familiar with these types of easels but would like to make a vacuum easel for projection printing.

    Thanks,

    Curt,
    If it is for horizontal projection, you want high volume airflow. A furnace blower with a squirrelcage fan is ideal. Build a manifold around the fan intake and use 4" flexible hose to your easel. I have built a couple and can provide more info if needed.

    Why are there no speaker jacks on a stereo camera?

    Curt, wow old post and still questions! I'm using this to do 8x10, 11x14 and 8x20 contact prints. It has glass and the glass forms a seal on the rubber seal and I can control the pressure with a bleeder valve. Either Azo or carbon transfer prints. I have switched to a NuArc 26 1KS unit that has a nice built in vacuum frame and pump and I have gone to printing in carbon only.

    Thank you Jim and Richard, I used NuArc equipment in college for my Graphic Design and Photography degree, it's the best equipment all right. I have a Kostiner vacuum pump with a foot switch and will be making an easel.
