Great job on the resurrection! Could you use o-rings?

The counter rubber is round so o ring might work. Gotta be a mighty big one though. The flywheel one is flat about 5mm high and ~ 1mm thick
When faced with quality, I recognise it every time.

Some O ring suppliers will custom make. The only question would be the strength of the join.
Beyond a critical point within a finite space, freedom diminishes as numbers increase. This is as true of humans as it is of gas molecules in a sealed flask. The human question is not how many can possibly survive within the system, but what kind of existence is possible for those who so survive.

O ring kit. We used to make our own, you get the length of rubber you cut to size and glue with CA
So, is that low alcohol or no alcohol at all? mmmm, no alcohol, do you want to try it? Noooooooooo.

I didn't realise we were competing?

But, is that even seafoam? Looks rather dark.
