  • vac amp

    i just purchased the vacuum amplifier for my portable , while the amp works.... the construction of it was extremely poor. the actual base of it was constructed of a thin aluminum colander an pop riveted together. motor attachment was with all thread. there were a lot of things wrong with the design in general [ off center bolting which when assembled bent the already thin aluminum colander housing- why not stainless to prevent metal fatigue- gasketing between motor an the screw on machine lid, an just general sloppy work. the housing bent just applying the pressure to put it on even before tightening!!
    for 500.00 i expected a little more craftsmanship than what was presented me. upon seeing this i built one just to see the complexity, 2 hours,[ after having all materials at the ready] using stainless steel an all screws an actual gasketing, i was amazed at the end product for 350.00 an still using a amtek vac motor.
    ***** what happened here with this model??*** i would like to think this is just a fluke !!!
    feel free to comment if i am in egregious error here

    Stainless Housing

    I have not been able to source the stainless housing. The vacuum performance is the same with and without the gasket between the lid and vacuum motor.
    Please let us know of any locations we can source this alternative top.
