Forum rules

1. Keep it clean.
2. Keep the discussion civil.
3. Name calling is not allowed.

Politics and religion are two topics that tend to degenerate into a violation of one of the three simple rules above.

The mods and the site admin reserve the right to "lock" or "delete" any discussion that in our opinion, is "heading in the wrong direction."

MOST of all, be respectful of your fellow Cubber's opinions. Don't expect to change someones belief system from a simple forum on the internet.

I remember the older ones were made of zinc.

Those lids used a rubber sealing ring that the lower skirt compressed against the flange of the jar. The girls used the glass insert from discarded ones as "playhouse" dishes.
