Testimonials

“I'm doing some wood binding today, and I pulled out a few pieces of curly maple I've had for a while that I bought from you. It never ceases to amaze me how LMI, above all my other suppliers, just consistently gives me materials that never fail to surpass my expectations. No matter what any picture on your site looks like, whatever I get is always better. Really appreciate it. I know that you supply many other people far beyond my volume and talent, but I am definitely a customer for life!"

vac·u·um / 'va-(.)kyüm
From the Latin vacuus for "empty". Vacuum is defined as a region with pressure much less than atmospheric pressure.

Vacuum clamping is the use of atmospheric pressure
against a closed flexible container or bag under vacuum
to exert a constant external clamping force.
