Thanks for the advice! This is my first time doing it, so glad to know!

BTW, is it necessary to flatten out the lid?
If your lid fits good without having been bent out, I would say you could probably use a round type of gasket instead and make sure it was only about 1/4" wide, then the lid would continue to fit as normal with the gasket helping to seal it up better.
