If you don't mind, how do you set up the shop vac to the exposure unit? Do you have pics of the setup?

I looked up metal halide online and the first thing that came up is a 1000Watt bulb for $41. Anyone make a vacum exposure unit with a metal halide?

Could you maybe post some instructions and a basic parts list for making your own vacuum unit?

Re: Info about vacuum exposure unit

Hello, I am new to the forum and screen printing in general. i just recently picked up an exposure unit from a friend who had no use for the box. it's a great unit and works well, but I was thinking of making my own vacuum top for the unit and have pretty much everything except a clue as to what size and spec vacuum pump to use. Has anyone done this or know of how to go about it?
