I made a still with a soup pan and a doughbowl, the seals i tried
1 rubber gasket - to stiff and smelly
2 silicone rubber tubing sliced open - well ok sort off, not perfect
3 silicone gasket or as the packing say's Form-A-Gasket no.6
I aplied it as a thin stripe and let it dry.
Now i placed the dough bowl on it and fastened it (check my website
i dont know exactly how to describe my contraption)
Its been opened and closed now for about 15 times and still ok.
And when its damaged easy repair or exchange with a new layer.
Oh the manufacterer is Loctite and its called Blue Silicone RTV
Catalog number 18869 and is also sold in europe
(where i work its in use coincidentally....)
