    seems like it would work well...probably a little better if you warm everything up before vacuum packing it.

    still, i've always hand packed mine.

    what do you guys think of?

    That is where I stole my idea from. Another benefit, is once they are packed you throw them in your trail spares box in your truck so if you ever need a bearing it is ready to go .

    10 bucks at a garage sale, keep it in the garage. Just steal her bag plastic.

    Beauty. I'll do that and see what I think looks. I got my own vacuum pack sealer for big daddy's day this year so I'm not worried about any cunnilingal interference.

    You could probably use a vacuum cleaner too. Just put the plastic bag around the hose and then a rubber band around that. Shouldn't have any cunnilingal interference with that.
