I am working on a wooden object  (25cm x 50cm x 10cm), badly damaged
by woodworms. I am going to consolidate it using solution of
Paraloid B72 in toluene. My intention is to improve penetration of
solution using air pressure (vacuum, underpressure, superpresure,
etc.). I ask for more information about it; If you have any
experience in that matter, or know some literature about it, please
let me know.
