How big of a hole to drill on the lid
    #11262959 - 10/17/09 12:22 AM (8 years, 1 month ago)

It's for the pf tek, I'm talking about the 4 holes, do you drill just enough for the needle to go into for inoculation or do you drill a lot bigger for FAE?

Don't you find rubber side down makes the jar hard as hell to open later?

I know, but you don't want the sharp punctures to be sticking out from the top of the lid, do you? I suppose they could be, but you would have no choice if you decided to have them on rubber side up to make for easy lid removal later on.

So the real question is, why hammer them rubber side down?

Sorry to "hammer on" with such a trivial detail.

i use my lids rubber side down so it works for me i never have a prob, the reason is the other way around and it creases the outer sealing rim sorta dents it. Give it a shot try to hammer a nail near the rim rubber side up

Yeah, it does do that.. I have tried it.  I forgot that happened.  Also never worried about it much/ran in to any problems with it though.
