    o-ring anger

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    just took apart my classic replaced the gasket seal, shower screen and cleaned it all up went to put my silvia steam arm back on and one of the o-rings was missing. i know i could get this at di bartoli but ive been out there (40 mins+) a couple times this week so i cant be bothered.

    Do you think i would find an o-ring the same at a hardware store.

    Has anyone experienced this?

    Could do... As to the make-up and how it stands up to heat ???

    Ya can always try Coffee Parts as they have a good supply of parts and their postage is reasonable and quick..

    Better than a 40min drive for an o-ring and may well be cheaper.

    Probably yes but you will need to buy a packet of them
    Try a plumbing supply shop as you will probably have more of a choice and they will sell single O rings

    Then go back to Di Bartoli next time you need one

    Or Aldi have a set of o-rings on sale this week.
    You get 100s but it may be cheaper than a drive to Bondi or postage.

    You should do well if it is a fairly standard item. Most of the hardware stores here (SA) sell single o-rings at the front counter.
