And at the same time I am chasing 4 1/4 inch top bits. Rings/clips/lids.
mitre 10 B_M, or try our local hardware, they used to sell fowlers stuff, but not sure if they still do, but mitre 10 def do
I was testing this morning and I didn’t like the chances of getting the 3 clip on the 3 1/2.. seemed too much pressure, the 4 does fit on their, but a little sloppy for my liking. Also worried about stressing the seals by over stretching them.
They are a hard size to find Callie, but Mtr 10 in Kroy now has a whole vacola section, not just some clips and lids stashed at the end of an isle, noticed the other day, was quite surprised.
found this again via google lol – looking for something else
thanks BM, will go look next time I’m there
You can them here: http://www.ozfarmer.com/food-preserving/preserving-lids-seals-and-clips/fowlers-vacola-lids-rings-and-clips/standard-lids-size-35-rare-and-unusual not sure how many they have left!! Very hard to get!
You can get the 4 1/4 lids and clips on ebay
Gosh this is really an old thread! Anyway I just bought 9 X size 20 jars but don’t think lids, rubbers and clips come with the deal. Not in the picture or description but just maybe I get lucky. Any idea what size lids I wwill need for them?
Size 3 lids, clips and rubber rings Chester. 🙂
