    Hi does anyone know where a person can learn how to vacuum infuse without reading a book? I'm a visual learner and I know there's alot to do with humidity and things like that. Any help would be appreciated.

    Other than going into a shop that practices infusion regularly and picking their brains, you might consider reading up on the process.

    There isn't much to it, get a vacuum pump and start testing. As far as humidity, I live in Florida, it plays a minor role, once you pull a vacuum on your part, the humidity flashes off. I find the easiest to control method is infusing inward, resin travels farther and less setup... It's a long thread but you can learn a lot here Infusion Plan https://www.boatdesign.net/threads/infusion-plan.43380/
