Traditional clamping methods take time and aren't always obvious for odd shaped items. For regular shaped work a vacuum clamping system is a huge time-saver. The Festool Vac Sys uses a powerful vacuum pump, an assortment of rubber, no-mar clamping cups, and a easily positional clamp head to hold your workpiece without limiting access. A foot pedal frees up both of your hands to position the work until you are ready to lock everything in place and the entire apparatus is small, efficient, and easily portable.
The basic Vac Sys system consists of a pump, a clamp with a large, round, no-mar rubber clamping cup, hose, and foot valve. This is the starting setup. For odder shapes, and irregular surfaces consider the accessory set of three more rubber, no-mar clamping cups.
For regular work on flat surfaces where you need access to the edges of the work, for example routing edges, edge-banding, or flush trimming, the Vac Sys will allow you to easily and rigidly clamp on the face of the work leaving the edges free of interference. Some craftspeople will find that for really large, or curved objects having two clamping units makes the job that much more solid and that much easier. Both units operate off of the same vacuum pump and you can save a little by getting the Vac Sys System Set which contains the pump and round clamp head as before but also includes a second clamp and an rubber, no mar rubber clamping cup.
