Can you please show a pic of your vacuum clamp set up for tops and backs?
Though I'm neither a builder nor a luthier, I've been intrigued by the vacuum clamp concept since first seeing it mentioned here several months ago, then googling it to see one in action. An online outfit called BB Industries has this clamp (Woods Precision is the manufacturer) advertised for US $96.37 but I'm guessing its 8-inch (20.32 cm) diameter is much too large for vacuum-clamping a soprano uke bridge.Can you please show a pic of your vacuum clamp set up for tops and backs?
Now for the noob question- what's the mechanical source for the 'vacuum' action within the plastic tubing?
