Thanks! I wouldn’t say I’m disappointed with the sealer- I think you misunderstand me. The sealer is great, just having some issues with the bags. I’ve found that when you deviate from the 3 & 4 mil barrier bags it can sometimes take some work to figure out the correct combo of voltage, seal time and cooling time.
I did a bit of messing around with some material cut from a Drybag that’s too large for my sealer (my error, forgot to measure) and it seems that about 1.2 seconds of sealing time with 4.0 seconds of cooling time (on Low voltage) seems about right. At this setting I can’t pull the stuff apart by hand yet it doesn’t seem to want to tear. I’ll test to see if holds the vac when I get to work. Lucky for me I have my own VP215C at home, same machine we have at the restaurant.
