Regular mouth $6.99
I have several blanks ready to go. I just need to pick up some Minwax Wood Hardener.

I figured you were way ahead of me. I hear Plexiglas melted in acetone works well, too. Haven't tried it, yet.

Sorry to interrupt the baccy talk.

Aha!!

Coco, thank you. I knew there was a cheap way of doing this, other than buying a FoodSaver. All I could remember was that there was something that people use from the auto parts store.

So, yes, use your foodsavers if they have a hose attachment. Or buy a FoodSaver. Or go the inexpensive route like Coco did if you want to save some coin. The key is using the Mason jars which everyone already has, and get the attachment.

Hope it works as well for you as it does for me. The tobacco will eventually lose flavor and moisture, but if you do seal it back up soon after opening, it will last years rather than a month or two, which was all many of my blends lasted before I started vacuum sealing.
