Tin Canning Lids?

In an effort to reduce plastic in my life I make some reusable canning lids out of pure tin.

    • @Masta Blasta I'm sure Cody could find a way to make it happen but steel would be absurdly difficult to get molten for the casting process. Maybe a sheet could be heated and stamped against a die to get the shape. It would still be a ton - maybe even a tonne - of work but the durable, reusable lids would pay off.

    • @Nigel Cam So you unironically think that the consumption of metal being unhealthy is a conspiracy theory? You must have eaten too much Lead then.

    • @ValleysOfRain. Ah, so in your professional opinion, I'm "insane" because I made a slightly(admittedly) long post, that involved sarcastically casting light on a very real problem? I'm not sure I agree with your prognosis there doc. I DID have an hour to kill at that particular time. So.... But BTW, while your out looking to find fault with other people, I'd recommend asking yourself why it is that you feel a need to cast aspersions and insults at people you don't even know. Normally when I see a sarcastic comment that is in no way insulting to me, I read it and move on to other things. I don't think to myself, "gee, I should take the time to send an unjustifiable insult to this person"!

  • So do the peaches cook in the vacuum chamber if it causes the water to boil? Also when you boil out the bacteria is that the process for all canned food and is that why canned food doesn’t rot as quickly?

  • Would you do a video on canning with antique glass lids? Currently there is only one YT video showing glass lids. Everyone who cans with Weck jars go on & on about how great they are, how beautiful they are & how healthy the glass lids are. I was searching for all canning lids on ebay and low & behold, glass lids made by BALL, Atlas, Presto & and several more came up. Apparently these lids were used between 1930-1963. I knew about the bail jars & ]their lids but the lids I’m talking about actually fit the regular & widemouth. Of course you have to find the gaskets for them. I have actually canned with them and they worked great. I looked up the directions in a very, very old Ball Blue book. This must be what Tattlers based their design on because it’s the same. Lid - gasket -- ring, but barely finger tight. Now I can brag about my beautiful glass lids & mine were made in the USA years before Weck came along. It was a thrill canning with antique lids and having it work out. The seal was so strong I couldn’t break it. The Ball instructions said to “open by placing the knife tip between the rubber ring & jar (OMG)”. Is that why they changed? Maybe if they had made a tool to open them, we would still be canning with glass lids today. I wasn’t about to tinker with a sharp knife tip, I’m much to accident prone. I did finally find the perfect solution. I used a laboratory spatula (I have these around because I make my own creams & lotions). The lab spatula is thin enough to pop the vacuum. So, please, do a great video on canning with antique glass. Sometimes we had it right in the past but gave it up! All I know is I don’t have to throw out my glass lids every time I use them. My next experiment will be trying a silicone gasket.

  • I saw in a toy locomotive video that a lot of parts are ladled into a metal mold and then a top is pressed onto it with a leaver. You can probably find many CNC-owning folks for hire to make you a handy mold for tin canning lids. If you have them machine it out of copper, it may even leave a trace residue that will kill germs, but not so much that it flavors the food.

  • Cody, don't worry about the lid blasting off. I lose at least one jar every year because I forget to turn the burner down from 10 to 7 once the jars are in the water. You just hear a noise like a balloon popping because the glass explodes before the lid gives out. The water and the canning pot contain all the shards and you're in no danger unless your hand is in the boiling water.

  • Cody'sLab -- You should be made aware that silicone sealant, and indeed virtually all elastomers, are not rated for high vacuum work because they all leak. The workaround is to use them in pairs, with a non-critical vacuum in between. Even a crappy vacuum is still down in the millionths of 1 bar, so there is very little force available to drive molecules through the tortuous micro-channels in the elastomers. Even then, it's not recommended for keeping helium out of the high vacuum. Helium will even pass through solid glass! (Slowly, of course.)

  • Hi Cody ! How are you ? In your vaccum chamber, can you put a graphite crucible supported by, may be a cellular concrete, fill with lead or something like that. And, then heat the crucible with your powerful laser in vaccum until the maximum temperature is reached. What would be the maximum temperature in air pressure and in vaccum ?

    Gardner SmithGardner Smith2 år sedan
  • You're overtightening the ring on the rubber gasket and you can clearly hear the vacuum seal collapsing as you turn the ring at 09:08. You can also see the juice level drop as air flows in. The ring is only there to keep the gasket and lid in place while the seal forms.

  • Might seem like a random pointless expirement, but could you test to see if that idea of Tin imparting a good flavour into the peaches actually has any merit by canning peaches into different cans of various food grade metals, then tasting them and seeing if there is any noticeable difference with a fresh peach?

  • The problem with replacing plastic with metal is that it's usually less environmentally friendly than plastic. Plastic does not become instantly unusable after one use, especially bottles - just use them as long as possible and replace them when they're actually unusable. With things like this that can only be used once, just don't use them if you're concerned about the environment.
