hello! my first post....and PC question
    #1610750 - 06/05/03 08:17 AM (13 years, 10 months ago)

hello ..i'v been reading this forum for a while now and have successfully grown using the PFtek and got the hang of casing.
thanks to all of you for hours of good reading...in some syncronistic way someone was always asking the same question as me so i never found the need to post!
until....
my friend found an old PC in the charity shop skip and i need to know how it works.
Basically all i need to know is how many of the three wieghts do i need to have on to achieve 15psi?
Its an english tower type...looks like a 5litre.
any response greatly apreciated :smile:

thanks for the quick response Anno.
i suspected it might be all three...unfortunately they're only marked as Low (L), medium (M), and high (H)....and due to the curcumstances in which it was aquired has no manual!
it can't hurt to try it out with a couple of jars tho' i suppose...
anybody else used one of these?
i think the proper name for it is a 'rocker' type.

thanks in advance. :cool:

are all 3 weights the same weight?

if so.. use all 3..

if they are heavier ie: L , light, M, heavier, and H heavier..

just use the H.. ie: L = 5lbs, M = 10lbs, and H=15lbs... check the model online..

they all seem to be the same wieght..i just put em on the regular kitchen scales and they're all just over 1lb each (the scales might not be accurate but theyre definately all the same wieght).
Its a 'Prestige' model...looks pretty old, no indication of model no. or anything like that.
The wieghts screw into each other.
soz..no pic

how does the gasket look? nice and soft or all hard and brittle?

any cracks.. dents, lumps, flat bottom? should be flat.. rounded bottoms are dangerous!!!...... give it a good inspection..

try just water with 1 weight and test it.

thanks Poops youre a lifesaver (maybe even literally!!) :smile:
'scuse my ignorance...which bits the gasket? the little rubber bit with the dangly metal thing? or something to do with where the wieghts sit?

you should have a rubber gasket to seal the lid and the pot... if it's all dry and crumbly your PC will leak steam... sometimes a bit of vegtable oil will help it from sticking....

make sure the vent pipe ( where you place the weight ) is not blocked, blow some air thru it, with your mouth!!!! and make sure it's clear!

you should also have a tiny rubber thing to prevent it from blowing up just in case, it's about the size of a dime, a bit smaller, on the lid , and should also be supple, and not all dried up!!.. should be a bit loose, and will plug up when up to pressure!
