Shawn, what did you use for the lights? LEDs with resister and battery?

The lights in the picture were a couple of segments cut from an LED strip like this one: http://amzn.to/1prL3Ai

These strips can be cut into segments that are pre-wired with 3 LEDs and an appropriate resistor.  They'll run off of a battery anywhere from 9V to 14V.

At some point, I'll probably end up re-doing the lighting with just one LED on each side and one resistor for the pair, but I'm in no rush.

Hi Shawn,

I was wondering what you were using for the suction on you vac table. I have been crunching the numbers and for what the commercial outfit wants to charge me, it looks like it would be more effective to build my own table. The table is not hard to build, it is estimating the size of the motor to use to pump air. Any suggestions/thoughts?

Sorry for not replying sooner.  I haven't been on the forums much lately. 

For my table I have two different vacuum sources.  The first is my shop vac.  That evacuates a lot of volume fast, but doesn't generate a very high vacuum.  Once that's done I switch over to the high vacuum side which is driven by a small vacuum pump designed for servicing automotive A/C systems like this one: http://amzn.to/1IWQruR
