    What do you guys think? Would this work well?

    Uhhmmm.....?
    Don't know if it would work, but what a PITA to reopen next time you want a smoke.

    That's extreme if you ask me and a waste of time just throw it in a jar or some kind of air tight container if you cannot smoke it in a reasonable amount of time, where do people come up with this stuff... :laff:

    For some reason, I have a major attachment to the tins, so I know where the guy in the video is coming from. I love everything about them and putting the tobacco in a jar just kills it for me. Not sure why.

    Put the tin in a wide mouth jar, air tight container or a Ziploc freezer bag.

    I personally have an attachment to the tobacco in the tin and with some tins that have a lot of age on them I smoke the tobacco sparingly to have an occasional treat, so the jars are the way to go for me.

    I think it would be too easy to miss a spot with this and ruin your tobacco. Imho, I think jars are the safest way to go. I wouldn't take any chances on drying out good tobacco.:D

    Agree with everyone on the jars. To answer the question though, yes I think it could work. But i think silicone would work better and be easier to reopen.

    I think it might work but it makes the tin look awful even with just one application. Imagine getting into the tin for a bowl every now and then. You would have to re-glue it each time and before long it would be one big gooey mess.

    If I had an attraction to tins I would not do this. I think it would more likely ruin the tin than preserve it.

    I like cobbsmoker's idea of putting it in a jar, tin and all.

    I just stick the lid back on and toss it in one of my humidors.

    All that jackwagon did was kinda, sorta glue the lid back on. Wide mouth jar or a Foodsaver vacuum pouch. Leave the glue gun for your arts and crafts...

    That wouldn't work for me either as I have about 50 or 60 open tins. For me jars are the best and only option.They keep the blend just as the blender intended.

    I just fired up my glue gun to see how well it sticks to the metal. Regardless, it seems like too much work, and if it sticks well enough to seal the tin, then it will be a one shot deal...

    I only throw tins in my humi that I am smoking out of.I jar everything I've opened in larger containers or bulk stuff.I probably only have 7 or 8 open tins in that humi.

    I'm also attached to the tins; I guess I just like shiny things. For long term storage (>1 month) I'll throw the tobacco into a jar and put the tin in a box. When I'm ready to actively smoke that blend, I'll put it back in it's tin and go from there. Best of both worlds. I do find its easier to use out of the tin than from the mason jar myself, so although its a little hassle up front, it's easier to access that blend when I'm ready.

    Ya... that's way better than putting it in a mason jar you can just open and close at your leisure. :doh:. I think that guys got some girl in his basement, telling her to put the lotion in the basket . I swear I herd her over that music. :shead:
