    Vintage Siphon Part Needed

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hi,
    I bought an old glass stovetop coffee siphon at the op shop.

    It has a perished rubber gasket at the base of the top vessel and I'm wondering where
    I might be able to get another one? I read that you can recondition brittle gaskets
    with auto transmission sealer but this one has actually melted.

    The only manufacturers name I can find on it
    is crown under the stand - I'm guessing this is the old Crown Glass manufacturer.

    Many thanks,
    Michelle

    Actually got that info via a link on this site, but regardless, mine is beyond that and needs replacing.

    Someone in the UK sells vintage Cory gaskets but I was hoping someone in Australia sells this kind of thing.

    Plus I don't know if Cory parts fit mine.
