Swapping weights on canners

Posted by dgkritch Z8 OR (My Page) on

Not truly a "harvest" question, but related.

I've got two Mirro canners.

One is the 12 qt. with the disc style weight (Model M-512)
The other is 22 qt. with ball style weight (Model 92022)

Can I purchase a replacement vent tube and disc weight for the 92022 and get rid of the stupid ball one that has to be screwed on (rather than just a quick drop) in the hot steam?

Anyone done this, know if it'll fit?
I've emailed for support, but I can imagine that'll take a day longer than forever and I'd like to swap it if I can and USE it THIS season! Grin!

You guys are way faster and actually use the darned things.
Whoever designed the ball style obviously didn't can.

Thanks a bunch for any info,

Give it a try and let us know how it works.

I have never been asked this before, so I don't honestly know if the vent pipes and all can be swapped out.

Let us know when you find out.
