Hand Pump Vacuum Sealer

Been looking for a manual vacuum sealer and came across this product. The battery operated vacuum I have just fits over the Mason jar attachment to suck out the air so I wondered if this product would do the same. Has anyone tries this?

I didn't look at the price, but a $20 brake bleeder works fine.

Yes. And they often have a gauge too.

Another option are manual pumps used for Chinese cupping sets, but I think the brake bleeders would be better.

I love my brake bleeder. On sale @ Harbor Freight.

When my vacuum sealer won't seal, that brake bleeder will!!! If you have a jar that shows resistance using the brake bleeder, just use two lids, one on top of the other faced up, and it seals well.

I have a 'pissy' neighbor that played the prepper game till she said her floors couldn't take any more weight of canned goods..but instead of correcting that, she buys a Chrylser 300.
Hell, I could build a room onto my house for the price of that car, starting at $32,000.
So, when she found out about my brake bleeder as an alternative to being without electricity and sealing those dried vegetables in the sun?? She said, ewwwww..if that isn't stainless steel I'm not using that.

THIS is why I just stay to myself in this neighborhood and regret EVER sharing with these idiots.
I will be killed for what I have stored--but, the last days of my and my husband's survival will not be going hungry!!! :p :rofl: :p :rofl: :p :rofl: :D :D :D
