Topic: bodum santos replacement gasket? (4 msgs / 74 lines)
1) From: Benjamin Morgan
hey everyone,
I'm a long time lurker on this list :) I'm wondering if anyone knows how to
get a replacement rubber gasket for the bodum santos stovetop pot? the
rubber seal is no longer sealing. i can hear air hissing through it, and
draw-down times are up to 5 minutes. I thought the gasket might be hard
(it's about 7 years old), so I boiled it (didn't work), and, per a
suggestion from the interweb, soaked it in WD-40 (didn't work and now it
reeks of wd-40). It's kind of sad to have to buy a whole new setup just to
replace that one part....
thanks
benjamin

Benjamin,
I'm not familiar with what your gasget looks like, but if resembles an "o"
ring, (either round, square or quad) then an excellent source is
mcmaster.com  They sell all types of hardware, all by specifications.  Its
where I go for the exotics (alloys, elastomers).  For example, they offer an
"o" ring, 3" OD, 1/8" square in cross section., Buna-N rubber, $8.30 for
25.. ( I suspect that you don't need 25, but I didn't surf around too much)

I'm a bit late to this topic,  but you might be able to use a rubber
stopper, if you can bore the right size hole in it.
Just BE CAREFUL (!!!) inserting the stem into the stopper (or the
replacement gasket if you get one).  I once ended up getting a good view of
the inside of my hand, followed by a number of stiches, when I was being
careless inserting some glass tubing into a rubber stopper.
