Summary

Allows you to use the Ziploc manual vacuum pump on a Foodsaver jar, when you don't feel like plugging in the machine.

Instructions

Large-face prints toward print bed so it's nice and smooth to make a good seal against the vacuum pump gasket. I printed with 2-3 extra shells as a safety against air leaks.

Apply a gasket/putty to the small opening (silly putty works up to a point) to give a good seal against the jar pump opening.

(Since silly putty is very malleable, it'll deform when there's enough of a pressure differential, at which point you've probably spent enough time pumping anyways.)

(The foodsaver jar lids don't seem to be manufactured with the same tolerances, so this may be snug or loose. Gasket/putty helps if it's loose; if snug, sand the adaptor down or if lazy, force the issue...)

i am not clear how this works with your unit. I found this project when looking for attachments for the freshsaver foodsaver unit. I was thinking maybe you would have more durable seal if you spread a thin layer of hot glue in place of the silly putty? and you can sadit down to make is smooth for better seal. and experiment with various thicknesses of the hot glue till you find a good depth for good seal? this is the unit i am trying to find or make attachments for:

hot glue ends up being quite rigid, so with any flexing it will detach and not provide a great seal.
Honestly, a gasket or silicone is the best.

However, silly putty was convenient as it's re-moldable (and I have a ton of it).

i am just getting into 3d printing.. I have only recently gotten a 3d printer.. and have had a chance to print a few things.. I still am trying to figure out how to design my own things and modify things other people have created.

If you want to be accurate, use some calipers to measure the diameters and thicknesses of the port.

My guess for that device (since there's no pictures of the vacuum port) is that you may be able to design a nozzle that fits in (and it'll have a gasket intermal), or you'll need to design something that fits around the outside of it.

Since it says it's compatible with their deli containers, then your attachments may want to designed similarly.

thanks for the tips.. I am really enjoying experimenting with making things.. and becoming familiar with the tools of 3d design.. I think 3d printing is game changer for our world economy., as better design tools evolve and 3d printers evolve and become more refinted and cheaper and faster.
