Gasketing


#1
    By the way, what do you make your replacement gaskets
from?  I have used neoprene sheet in the past, but it was a
pain to find large enough pieces. Swells out of shape so much
it can't be re-used. Cork sheet and form-a-gasket doesn't seem
to work as well. 

any god auto supply should have an assortment of sheet gasket.

there is also forma gasket in several grades of RTV silicone
which should hold up to almost anything.

There is one more product line of "form in place silicones"
from LOCTITE that you may try. They are available from
automotive suppiles stores and the stuff is applied directly
from a red squeeze bottle. They are formulated to be oil
resistant and do not give off the vinegary smell of RTV
silicones. They are also a lot cheaper than 2 part RTV
silicones which come in a package costing as least $50.

The max. gap fill is .250 inch and is good for -75deg to 450 deg
F. The high temperature product will tolerate - 75 deg to 600
deg F.

Ask for a LOCTITE catalog as there are many more LOCTITE
products that will be very useful around any shop. In
particular their threadlock product finally solved my problem of
keeping tight those tiny screws for my wireframe glasses.
