BUILD YOUR OWN VACUUM HOT TABLE FOR $600

Reginald M. Hoare, & Susan J. Connell


ABSTRACT—In response to an apparent need for an inexpensive vacuum hot-table among painting conservators, this paper is a detailed description of a table of 4′ 8′ that was built in November, 1978, for just over $600. It gives a detailed account of how it is constructed, what materials are used and where they were purchased, with a breakdown of costs. With photographs and diagrams, it should give the reader a clear idea of how to build his own hot-table.
