Re: Vacuum Sealing Snall Spares

Folks,
I have learned a great deal by simply returning to a thread that I started, which is the beauty of this forum. I should have clarified that I do all of my vacuum sealing at home with a 120 VAC WESTON Pro 2100 sealer with a capability to seal a 15" width. I have found that capability very useful when cutting bag material in half lengthwise to accommodate long narrow items. While my sealer cost about $400, I went that route for longevity in the kitchen using standard bag material rolls that I purchase from Amazon in 2 roll packages. I did a fair amount of prior research online and through You Tube. It is amazing what is out there! Best of luck to all and keep the new ideas coming! George

Well,

From experience with my own wife, when it's that time of the month she can strip paint from 1000 yards just with that icy glare. Must remember to use it next hull cleaning.

Mark, See my repost #16 concerning the sealer that I use and my reasoning. It was purchased from OVERSTOCK.COM. George
