Hi Jennifer. Talk to some salespeople at printer supply businesses like A.B. Dick. They sometimes know if good units sitting around in back rooms in print shops. 

Good luck!

It was designed to work by gravity alone and has never worked well. That said I am in the market for a vacuum unit that will accept 30x40 paper. I’ve been in touch with Jon from Edwards Engineered Products. I like his design, but it requires that I modify my light source so that the vacuum frame fits underneath. While I understand that this is likely to be the case with any vacuum frame I purchase I am curious if there are any other sources out there for vacuum frames. If anyone has any suggestions I’d love to hear them!
