From: "Rick Farris"
That explains the confusing differing experiences. When you said not being
able to seal, I believe you meant not being able to pull a vacuum and hence
it never started auto sealing. I thought you meant seal, as in seal it
closed, as in the heat sealing process not working across your made side
seam! I've been making these little pouches for a couple 3 years and have
always made my side seam right on the edge. I line up the cut just barely
beyond the center of the sealing strip (not all the way across), close the
cover, and heat seal. Maybe intuitively, maybe dumb luck or maybe just to
make the pouch as large as possible (conservation streak) so haven't
experienced the problem. Though what you say makes sense. I'll have to make
some with wider side seams and see if I can replicate the problem...
