Default How to use a vac bag for internal pressure

Thought Id put a few slides together on using a vac bag to create an internal pressure force instead of a bladder. This can sometimes be a tricky one to get your head around but in reality is quite simple. Hopefully these slides make it clearer. I couldn't seem to upload a doc here so I stuck it on our website at work

next time use tube type bag that way you will have less chances to have a leak and you will save some materials
