    I was gonna try that, but the UltraCopper doesn't seem to want to hold it in place long enough to set up without contracting back to it's original width. So I found some "rope" that's actually hollow - fit's perfectly without stretching or bunching.

    sorry to disagree with you, but a "bunched" braided gasket will stay in place. BTW the trouble with that rope you used means the bottom side stuck to the Permatex while the top half is allowed to move. Movement means friction which leads to wear which leads to broken fibers.

    Ron, when I laid the 5/8" tape on the mini, it was much too wide. Stretching it required so much force that I didn't see any way UltraCopper would have held it in place, unless I did 3" at a time and held it there while it set up. I didn't try it because I just didn't think it would work.

    The rope does not move when I open the dome. It seemed to at first, though minimally, and I actually liked that. But after a few cooks, it flattened out and now looks just like the tape on my large. Dunno. In any case, if I ever have to replace it (do these things ever wear out?), I will use it again.
