How strong is your vacuum? In other words, what inches of mercury are you pulling? I use only 23 inches, however many like as much as 27. I have found some wood sinks, some doesn't. I don't think I have ever pulled a vacuum for more than one hour although I have set some soak overnight.

I pull 29" of vacuum with my JB Eliminator DV-4E pump. I am sitting about 32 feet above sea level.

I have stabilized a few different types of wood that have floated (no bubbles and then soaked 24 hours), yet when turned have had total juice penetration. I guess it just depends on the wood.
