which impulse sealer?
    #6451126 - 01/12/07 05:25 AM (14 years, 3 months ago)

which impulse sealer should I go for? I was thinking about getting it 300mm (is this bad for it to have an unused end?) would you get one with a cutter?. I'm only doing bags at the min but will be moving on to tube bags soon-ish (I guess 10 inch 254mm). Any help would be good not sure what to look for in an impulse sealer.

These where some I looked at.

have you tried ebay.com or ebay.co.uk. there are some sellers on there that are a bit cheaper - the only big cost really is the postage from US or Tokyo. Don't know if they are any good though. Also mycofarm.co.uk has some - again a bit more expensive.

Not to worried on the price more which one to get. I used mycofarm before for stuff but I dint think they keep much in stock so you have to wait and then some of it they cant get.
does this look any good ? http://activeoffice.opnet.co.uk/Detail.aspx?SearchText=852591&P3P=1

The super duper cheap ones on Ebay work great, and most of them come with replacement elements too. Impulse sealers are the one thing I've found that you can go really cheap on, they last forever. We use the $30 ones from Ebay at work and they've been going for years, with daily use.

would appreciate if people could give me advice on this one as well, as I'm probably interested in buying one myself.

You want one with the WIDEST SEAL WIDTH possible.
(not length of seal, width of seal)
Also, a name brand, rather than "made in China".
Also, check to see if you can get replacement elements.
For whichever you choose.
The better grade ones have replacement elements available.

If you plan to move up to tubes.
I would also suggest getting one on a stand, with a foot pedal.
That way, you can set the tubing roll on a roller bar.
In front of it.
So, it will feed easy.

YES & with a cutter.
Especially, (a cutter) if you move up to rolls of tubing.

£ 213.32 :eek:
I think it is way OVERPRICED.

You should be able to find one (equivalent grade).

For under $60 / 70 usd.

my deciding factors how big of a bag am i gonna ever make. 16" is max for me. i agree with agar... if your gonna do tube get the cutter, if you can't afford one with a cutter it's not big loss just a loss of convieniece.

You can often find these on eBay from $75 to $150.
But, they are a bit bulky & heavy.
So, always watch out for shipping costs.
