Vacuum Sealing Mason Jars

A few weeks ago we obtained a vacuum sealer from a yard sale. It did not include the mason jar sealing kit, but I went ahead and paid retail to obtain the accessory. Now I can seal up my coffee, nuts, seeds, dried fruit and other stuff we typically store in mason jars. This should help food store longer. There is a clever way to achieve this vacuum using the same accessory it using a automotive hand brake. I have also been considering making a system which could work to store 25 lbs of bulk food in a 5 gallon bucket with a vacuum.
