Old National Pressure Canners and Cookers Some folks are looking for the instruction manual for the Old National Pressure Cooker No. 7.  If you have one and can scan the manual to email me, please write me, and I'll add it!

Background:

National Pressure Cooker is the company name (1917) for the Presto company. It became Presto in 1939.

So, the National #7 s date to the 1940 s. The wood handled ones are older than the plastic handled ones.
Using a canner that old is a but risky, unless you can have it tested and assuming you could get parts for it.

Parts are here: http://www.pressurecooker-outlet.com/7.htm 

So, if you replace worn parts, especially the over-pressure safety valve, you'll need to have the gauge tested or replaced and check the canner for warping or other deficiencies.
