Well, I for one would definitely want to buy a pair of simonh’s pods, so hope they will become available again.
DynaGlide, thanks for the video at the link. One thing I did notice that would bother me is: you were using only one VAC-SYS head, so the panel you were routing moved at each end of the process. I think I would need to have both heads up to prevent that, or have some support at the ends. Has anyone else dealt with that?
Also Dyna-Glide: where did you source the hexagonal rod for your LR-32 side stop extensions?

@Stan Tillinghast It's from McMaster Carr.    89845K77 I bought the 2ft length.

The other tricky part is finding a tape that will fit it. .this is the one I used https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00I8RKN68/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1

The video makes it look like the panel is moving but it really isn't in relation to the vac sys head. Not an issue for this operation unless you're planning on doing much longer panels. These were the sides to ~25" tall base cabinets.

I left the option to add a second vac sys head to my cart but have yet to find a need for it. Maybe if I was working on doors or something.
