I’m working on my book today and want to include a list of FV jar sizes. Can someone help me with this?
# 10 ?
# 14 or 350 mls
# 20 or 600 mls
# 27 or 800 mls
# 28 or 600 mls
# 31 or 1000 mls
# 36 or 1250 or is it 1150mls??
# 65 ?
Can you check my list and fill in the blanks please? 😀December 30, 2006 at 9:33 am #284498
# 3 or ??? ***
# 10 or 200 mls
# 36 or 1100 mls
# 40 or 1300 mls
# 42 or 950 mls
# 65 or 2000 mls
***don’t have any of these – they’re baby food size and about 1/2 the size of the # 10 – my old book decribes them as 4 oz and the # 10 as 1/2 lb, so I’d say they’re not fluid oz but mass it’s referring to.
Maybe also include the ring, lid and clip sizes required for each one. # 28’s a pain (I have 4 which I bought new from Mitre 10) because although they take a 4″ ring, they take a 4.5″ lid and clip of which I’ve never been able to find.
I also have a few of Fowlers’ 1 pint juice bottles.December 30, 2006 at 10:00 am #284499Judi BKeymaster
I have the #28 Pudding jars the clips which I got the hardware to order in for me, have you asked them to get them in for you otherwise contact Vacola and get them direct, I did it with the #10 rings and lids also the 1 pint juice rings.December 30, 2006 at 10:18 am #284500
Thanks Judy B! I’ll do that. :tup:December 30, 2006 at 8:42 pm #284501nuggetMember
From the ‘Australian Preserving with Fowlers Vacola’ book they list the following jars and respective capacities:
No. 10 – 250 mL
No. 14 – 400 mL
No. 20 – 600 mL
No. 27 – 900 mL
No. 28 – 600 mL
No. 31 – 850 mL
No. 36 – 1250 mL
No. 65 – 2200 mL
Fruit Juice bottle – 600 ml
I also have a couple of older FV booklets and they list some of the older jar sizes but like Tam mentioned they seem to quote weights in pounds & ouncesDecember 30, 2006 at 10:27 pm #284502
Many thanks, Judi, Tam and Nugget. Much appreciated. :tup:January 1, 2007 at 3:00 am #284503
I measured mine by filling them up with water then measuring the water. Seems there’s a bit of a discrepancy between what FV state and the actual capacity. Maybe they measure to the brim. I just measured to the bottom of the brim (about 1cm from the top). I also forgot to list that my # 10 measured 200 mls. I’ve edited my list to include this.January 2, 2007 at 2:52 am #284504RobyneMember
Thanks for the info on Vacolla bottles I only have 3 sizes that take 3″ and 4″ rubber rings My local IGA guy tried to get me other sizes but was told they didn’t make them anymore. My mum had all sizes for small and large fruit and veggies. I’ll try Bake and brew here in SA maybe they can helpJanuary 2, 2007 at 2:54 am #284505
thanks Tam :hug:January 10, 2007 at 10:34 pm #284506SpriteMember
Anyone know what the lid, ring, and clip sizes are for:
Edited to add: its ok I’ve worked it out, just for the record
270 = same jar diameter as 27 so size 3 clip, lid and ring
73 = ” ” 36 so size 4 “
74 = ” ” 36 so size 4 “January 10, 2007 at 11:52 pm #284507kimbleMember

This thread is nearly 5 years old, so I get the prize for best revival of the decade…
Anyhow, a few posts back it is stated that the number 73 bottle takes a 4″ lid, actualy it takes a 3 and a half inch lid, which seems to be obsolete, have searched online too.
Wondering if anyone has some to spare or swap or whatever?

Bushy, I just found this old post in a google search after I sorted all my vacola stuff out this morning. I think I have a few lids to spare ( stainless) , but what about clips and rings, where the heck to get them from?
And at the same time I am chasing 4 1/4 inch top bits. Rings/clips/lids.November 27, 2011 at 4:36 pm #284511bushyMember
ooooo…excellant, I think I need 8, will get back to you.
The 3 and halfs are like the 4 and one quarters…..no longer made.
I am certan the 4″ ring will fit and I’m hoping the 3″ ring will do mine.
Also hoping the 3″ clip will spread that far…. havent tested that theory yet, but the 4″ clip should be ok on yours.
Will be on the lookout for some four and a quarter lids for you barefoot.
