10% for SMF members on home products - does not apply to commercial lines. Lisa's discount code is SM1112 for this month. Should change after tomorrow to a different code. The discount works for her bags too which are the best deal out there  smile.gif

I don't see anywhere on the checkout page to enter a discount code.

Newbie to this site. I bought my first original Foodsaver nozzle style vacuum sealer from Thom Dolder at Proffessional Marketing Group about 4 years ago. Thom was one of the first to sell the original when it first came out in the 1980's and bought the patent when food saver changed to the channel style sealer. He sold it under the names Vacufresh & Vacupack. Mine is the Vacupack which was the last version and was made in China but with the same components and to the same specs as the earlier Italian ones. 

 

These old machines will out perform & outlast ANY external vacuum sealers currently made under $400.00.

I have sealed over 400 wet slimy bags with mine to date with out a failure. I like it so much I just picked up a spare original Italian made Foodsaver (ebay) for $35.00.......all the parts are interchangeable. Pump & sealer work perfect, just need a new pad kit which Thom still sells for under $20.00.

 

If you google "Foodsaver History, PMG" a great article covering the history / attributes of this machine from Thom comes up. A must read before buying a new "pretty" throwaway foodsaver for 3 times what the original can be had for on ebay.

 

BAGS: In 300 quantity, quart bags are about .18 cents ea to the front door from "webrestaurantstore".

This thread has aged nicely but the links to Tilia parts are no longer valid. Does anyone know where to get parts and seals for the old original Tilia Foodsavers?

There is a web site listed on one of the Tilia threads.....

The last I knew Thom Dolder at Professional Marketing Group still stocked parts for the original Italian made Tila Nozzle machine & also the original Italian made channel machines.

You were right.  Big thanks for the lead! It took a few minutes on the Internet to find the right location.

Thom Dolder answered the phone.  He makes has seals made and is shipping out replacement seals as soon as he receives a new batch that meet his standards.  I also ordered some vacuum jar parts that did not come with my ebay purchase.  Here's the contact info.
