    Default Vacuum Table angle question

    I recently finished my Andy Mac Vacuum Table, but now I want to put it at an angle. Does anyone know the best way to do this? Should I do it like a skateboard ramp, then mount the table on top, or should make legs for the back?

    Also wondering if anyone has a suggestion on the proper angle that a table should be at?

    thanks in advance GEEPEE

    I remember years ago lonny unitus helped me figure out what the hell screenprinting was, he had his vac table on a huge angle, maybe he can post the picture or help talk about what he did to make it work.

    i never measured it the angle, but here is what mine is at. i built the table with a lip around the edge so the vacuum top can fit in without shifting- which could be done with wood just as well.

    ive always wondered what kind of problems you would have with the ink running down between pulls.

    i actually had it in the cabinet its sitting on, but it would get real hot. now the hose runs through the wall and the vacuum sits in the crawlspace. then i have a xmas tree foot switch attached to the table.

    I have mine on four legs, at about a 20 degree angle. It works well for me.
