Default Who Sells Large Silicone Gaskets?

Who sells large (1.25" water heater element size) food grade silicone gaskets?

Bargain Fittings sells o-rings, but no gaskets that size.

I have found sheets of gasket material, but no gaskets that size.

I cut one from a length of silicone tubing I had. Works like a charm and was quite inexpensive.

That's pretty neat.



Food grade silicone gaskets start at a couple of bucks, that tubing is about $2.35 a foot. Bet I can make a TON of gaskets from a foot of it.

Thanks, I have a few feet of the tubing. I cut a piece to try Sunday, in fact.

Sorry to bring back and old thread....but how can you cut a clean hole in a silicone square like in the picture above ?

I need to make one myself but I'm unsure how to proceed
