I have purchased a suction table from Per Laursen in Denmark in
size: 120 x 200 cm for about US$ 6.000. On request he make them in
different sizes from about US$ 3.000.  The table is ideal for
supporting backing-materials for maps and papers in all sizes, and
could also be used in connection with a leaf-casting machine.

The suction table is built in plastic.  Organic solvents can't be
used, only water in moderated quantity will work very well.  The
motor-unit is an industrial water-vacuum-cleaner who is built into
another table and connected to the suction table with a hose. If you
want to avoid the noise, it is possible to have the motor in a
separate room.

Interested can contact:

    Per M. Laursen, who also built leaf-casting machines.
