I built a table for the vacuum press and now my little vacuum does not have the power to suck out all the bubbles on the skis.

Does anyone know a spot in Europe where I can buy a vacuum that is strong enough to pull silicone on a large table vacuum press?

I live in Norway, so the closer the better. Thanks for the input!

Thanks for the links. I will take a look at them. I am thinking that my vacuum does not get enough pull, as I keep getting bubbles and warping in my p-tex. I have a silicone blanket on a table press.

If there is one that you recommend, that would be great, but if not I will play around and give it a go.

Thanks for the links,

Where is the silicone blanket in your set-up? Could the heat from that be causing the warp in your base?

pmg is right, pictures would help

Montucky is probably right. The bubbling could well be caused by overheating the materials in the press.
