I want to change the tensioner, but forgot to order the gasket as well  :huh:

Could I make one from regular gasket paper, or is it made from some other kind of material ?

Just put one on today - yep thin black gasket paper. I also scanned it before use.

 

 

Which the site won't let me upload (libre office file).

 

If you want the file I can email it to you - just pm me.

Thanks, guys! I'll pick up a sheet of gasket paper 😀 Favs, thanks for offering, but don't be bothered. It should be as easy to transfer the pattern by rubbing a sheet onto the hole. Used to that with coins when we were kids...😎

A sheet refers to a section of toilet paper.  I'll leave you to guess what the hole refers to. :lol:
