Topic: More Thrift Store Madness! (3 msgs / 62 lines)
1) From: Gene Smith
I forgot to mention that I also found an aluminum Cory vac-pot (electric), 
too.  It had its glass rod intact, but I remember there has been chat on the 
list about gaskets.  I assume that refers to the gasket between the top and 
the bottom pots?  Any way to check condition other than buy it and try it? 
It was only 10 bucks, but I was hesitant since I know absolutely nothing 
about vac-pots other than what I've picked up by very casual attention to 
the comments on this list.  Advice?
Oh, the only thing missing seemed to be the electrical cord, which I don't 
imagine would be any problem to replace.

If you can flex the rubber of the gasket easily with
your fingers and there is no visible damage, like
cracks or missing chunks, it is probably okay.
Sometimes thrift stores keep the electrical cords
aside -- I guess so people don't plug them in and get
hurt or start a fire. Ask the cashier. Otherwise, as
you say, it shouldn't be hard to find one that will
work.

Can't go wrong I paid over $10 for the rod alone on e-bay. If the pots no
good use the rod in a Bodum Santos it works great.
