Old school wire bail, glass topped canning jars??

Has anyone had experience with the old wire bail canning jars? I just got 3 boxes of these things at a rummage sale yesterday and I'm hoping they'll work. I have a bunch of the Weck jars and absolutely adore them, but they're just so pricey and I could use some more. I don't want to use the normal Ball jars because the lids all have some level of BPA in them. These wire bail jars are glass topped and I'm pretty sure I can get new gaskets for them online. But will they work to preserve the food??? I can't see why not, but then again - I'm a pretty new canner!

They look like this: [URL=""][/URL

Any thoughts are really appreciated!
