    24x30 Vacuum Easel

    I havn't seen anything that big either, even though I guess that there are such items around. You can check with blueprint copyists etc. On the other hand you can quite easily assemble one yourself and use a vacuum cleaner or similar to create the vacuum. The model I'm thinking of would be 2 1/2" high, but if you are more elaborate with it, I guess that you could construct a model which would be less than an inch high. It is basically just a flat box, where the top and bottom are made of e.g. plywood. The top should be drilled with a pattern of small holes. The sides should be made from 2" wide strips of wood. In one of the sides you simply drill a hole where to insert the vacuum cleaner tube. A few nails and some wood glue, some sanding, possibly some paint and you're done.
