Metal to metal lid filter
    #1374218 - 03/14/03 12:38 AM (15 years, 1 month ago)

Plastic lids are a pita to find sometimes. For those who do a lot of G2G in quart jars & have lots of metal lids.

Here is an easy perminant filter system.

Drill 2...............1/4 inch holes in 2 stacked metal lids, one on top the other.



Add a layer of Tyvek over one lid.



Fluff up some polyfil & add over Tyvek.



Add another layer of Tyvek & use a little glue to hold it all in place



Put the 2nd lid over the first, hold up to a strong light, to make sure holes match.



You now have a perminant filter on double metal lids, use it upside down.

When you PC it, the first time, the sealer on the lid, will vulcanize the two lids togather.

Cheap, simple & effective.

My holes on my metal lids always get rusty.
So it would only work once for me.

I'd have to take it apart...wire brush the holes.
Then I'd have to replace the Tyvek and polyfil...cause I don't like rust marks.

I'll pass on this one bro.
Too much work.

I'll stick to Tyvek and bandaids.

Yo Road,

When ya drill holes in new metal lids. Take a moment, to dab on a a bit of thin rustoleum paint around the hole - on both sides. That will stop the rust for a long while. Sounds like a pita. But, it isn't really & only takes a moment.
