    And, might I add, that's a nice idea for the footswitch. I ended up monkeying with a guitar effects pedal to fire up the vacuum - cool, no doubt, but yours was probably a lot easier to set up!

    great process post!

    ok, i think i have this figured out...

    you made some kind of light/vac table and taped your vellum positive in place for registration and then poked out all the holds for the vacuum? genius.

    where did you get that big slab of plastic for the top?

    i also did the xmas tree button, its attached under my table. and im sure i would cut up myself and my screen up using xacto blades for registration.

    I got a piece of plexiglass out of a dumpster at a sign shop. The light setup looks wicked. If you do build a vacuum table out of plexi-glass be careful to put in lots of supports or else it bends...
