Any vacuum table options on the horizon?

Pretty much in title.

Any 3rd party options both large and small?

Anyone making their own but have recommentations for vacuum sources?

I came close to building one for a high volume rework job we completed here…ended up just building a fixture with special clamps, but a vacuum table would have saved a ton of time.

Vacuum pumps can be had so affordably on amazon these days that it really would be trivial to build yourself one.

I’ve wondered about this. What is the practical reason people don’t usually use those basic single stage pumps for vacuum chucks? Usually I’ve seen venturi pumps.

My assumption was that single stage pumps handle debris poorly, and they would get ruined quickly by ingesting a chip or dust.
