you always need water to run a pc
you must not let it run dry ever

or you cant turn it into a time bomb. If you run a pc dry you warp it or crack it turning it into a very dangerous situation

Who's the cheapest, and provides the best quality?
The spore works offers the bags at a decent price, but I couldn't find the sealers. On the net I found a place called Uline.com, and they offer a good price, but I would perfer to get everything from one dependable vendor. Shipping for two orders could easily outweigh the affordabilty.
Please prodive some insight people, as I really want to try and purchace these items this next weekend. Thanks.

Roll up the filter patch bag like a loaf of bread on the end, and seal it with tie wire. There is no need to buy an impulse sealer.

Impulse sealers are handy for many purposes other than sealing spawn bags.
You can get a decent price on ebay

http://cgi.ebay.com/...7514738221&rd=1

this model has a 3mm seal which is nice. I've seen cheap models with a 1mm seal which imho is not adequate enough.

Yes, I've been rolling mine about 8-10 times over... then holding with a clothespin... no impulse sealers :) Though I found a cheapo handheld for $5 at wallymart near the bags. Not the good full size ones.

The were a sponser here..... www.mycobag.com... but not is www.mycofactory.com.... got myself some bags there. Very reasonable imo.

Much love Shobi. Much love for sure. I just had 50 prints go to the trash due to my sealer crappin out. I can't believe I didn't check ebay.

I just bunch up the top of the bags and do it up tight with a zip tie.
If you don't have the filter patch, you can wad up some polyfil and cinch it up in the neck of the bag.;)

I took shoobie's advise and went the ebay route. Many thanks. New 12 sealer for 47.88, including shipping.

Even though I haved used the twisted bag method, as well as the zip lock with verm seal with fairly decent success, I'm also looking for a long term storage solution. Plus, one day in the still too distant future when I can afford to build a flow hood, I want to be able to do multiple bag experiments, instead of just two crammed into a glove box. Or so I dream.

You can take a small piece of pvc pipe, say 3 inches long of 1.5 inch pipe. You fill it with polyfill, stick it in the neck of the bag and rubberband itit place, then wrap with aluminum foil and pc.

yeah.. But it seems that the pvc would get in the way the steralizing processes. Can i put theese bags in a pressure cooker?
