The engineer in me picked up on a statement that Charwoody made at the beginning of this thread that caused a light to go on.
“I find that the very end tips of the heating strip will melt the bags leaving a air leakage if done improperly.”
I found this also with my FoodSaver and this may be key in understanding how to get a good seal. The very ends of the bags were always getting melted through. If indeed the ends of the sealing strip is higher in temp during the sealing process then that is a very key understanding to getting a good seal.
Based on this I have a few experiments to run with my FoodSaver and will post the results I find.
