Most Home sealing machines will work, but I believe the AUTOMATIC MASTER SEALER [like above] is the Best although more expensive,$495 hand crank or $1,790 for electric NEW. IF buying used, make sure it has the correct can Chuck [#2 1/2] or that will cost you $150 from the manufacture.

Machine I use for 5qt can [manufacture said it wouldn't do that size] would have cost $2470 IF I had bought it New.

If I didn't make Copy cans, I could never recover enough to buy good machines.

...I remember there being some unused Gulfpride lids on eBay a while back, wish I had tried to get'em now...

...Tee Tee...or Dick...this Hoosier Pete can is of 'normal' height, because it was a flat cut to size by the can company, just never originally made into a can, right?...

...if you reconstructed a can that had originally been a can, but was cut and flattened to patch the roof, or whatever - that reconstructed can would be a little shorter than normal, because of the metal 'lost' when lidding the can, correct?...or am I mistaken...
