I don't know whether that's cheap enough to make all the effort worthwhile.
You'll have to 'mod' the vacuum sealer (there's youtube vids on how to do it) as regular domestic vacuum sealers dont work on mylar bags

Hi!
Thanks for the advice.
I saw your previous post on this subject and have seen the various mods available, so I'm going into experimental mode!
