    VBM Fix for leaky Drip Tray Handle

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight

    I have been looking for a cheep and easy fix for VBM owners that have a leaky
    Drip Tray Handle

    This washer is perfect in all ways
    DIY & cheap
    Water proof
    Heat resistant
    And the correct size

    I recommend that you get a hold of a couple of small roofing screws that are also commonly used for sheet steel
    Remove the washer/s from the screw/s (it is easy)
    And use them on your leaky VBM Domobar Drip tray handle

    See photo of what I mean
    Another problem solved ;)

    Is that a rubber washer or a steel washer? If steel, does it rust?

    Itís a good question because the older type washers fitted to roof screws/nails were made of lead
    However these are Definitely Rubber

    In the picture they look cream because the screw heads were painted the colour of the roof sheets

    Thanks KK

    I wanted to see if tightening them would work
    If not, add some plumbing tape and / or a washer.

    Needed to know spanner size as will have to go buy one.

    Measure across the flat ends of the hex if possible and you will have your spanner size

    You can get o-rings and various rubber or fibre washers from bunnings for around $2.
