Dollar Bill test: 70% pass 30% Fail... Suggestions
I am not mechanical, but I am logical. I understand how things work, while not the best at fixing things. That is why I am so frustrated with the hinge mechanism on my large. I just don't understand all the idiosyncrasies.
I replaced my gasket last week and have cooked on it twice. Turned out decent, but I am failing the dollar bill test from about 10 o'clock to 2 o' clock assuming the hinge is noon. The rest of the egg is tighter than a frogs behind.
It's not like I can see light or anything where it seems loose, but compared to the passing parts of the dollar bill test its pretty leaky.
Any suggestions for how I can get the remaining area to pass the dollar bill test?
Many thanks- P
