    Shell,

    Since 2002 I have sold <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" />Rutland gaskets as a not-for profit service to fellow eggers. To date I have sold 859 gaskets to people in 41 states and 6 foreign countries!

    <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /> 

    Years ago I used to sell the full kit which included the Rutland latex adhesive, but for the last several years I've recommended people switch to using Permatex Ultra Copper which is available to you at any auto parts store. It even works out better as I now buy the gasket on reels which have 157 feet. That way I can sell the length needed for each size egg. As a for instance for an XL egg you need 9 feet or 108 inches of gasket so that you only have 2 butt ends instead of buying 2 Rutland kits from say ACE Hardware or Amazon of only 7 feet (84 inches) and then having 4 butt ends plus throwing away the remaining 5 feet of gasket!

     

    Are you familiar with the application process whereby you "bunch" the gasket back into itself thus making it both thicker and wider than the 5/8" so as to cover your entire edge? In doing so you only apply the Rutland on one side only - not both. Here’s the link to a picture of what I mean by “bunching”.

    If that link doesn’t work then cut and paste this link:

    The total cost for the gasket including the postage shipped in the USA for a large is $11.00 or $13.00 for an XL. If you live in Canada the price is slightly higher due to higher postage rates. I also will send a detailed set of instructions for installation. BTW if you want to order a gasket for more than one egg, like for an egger buddy, just ask me for a quote – the postage is more than half the cost for just one gasket and I can ship up to 4 gaskets for the same postage, saving you money.

     

    I'll just need your mailing address and the size of your egg and typically it will go out that same day if not the next day.

     

    After I have confirmed it has been shipped I will give you my address so your check and the gasket can cross in the mail. It's just that easy!
