    I don't have any experience with a vac hold down for the CNC, I screw my material down to the sacrifice board. However back when I did screen printing a made a vac platten to hold sheets of vinyl flat for printing. I put the shop vac in the crawl space and ran the hose through the wall to the screen press. It was just loud enough to remind me it was on & worked well. Had a remote on/off switch mounted to the side of the screen press with an indicator light, as backup in case I forgot about the dull hum of the shop vac in the crawl space.
