With a little time a very nice circle gasket cutter can be built. Some of my best (chesterton 211) came from Joe Kelly, and Bill Lopoulos. We only use it for gas engins and do not know about steam.

Hi Guys, A good source for Gaskets of all kinds is Lubbock Gasket Co. Lubbock, Tx. If you have a pattern they will make you a duplicate.They also have a lot of gaskets in stock. They have been in business for years and work with fellows in the Oil Fields to keep the older equipment running. Dale
