Source of Custom Made Gaskets
By Cynthia Craig

Hi MMDers,  I recently had the wheels of an 1899 Thayer baby carriage
retreaded using O-rings made by the General Gasket Company here in St.
Louis city.  The work was very reasonably priced, quickly done, and
looks like the original.

On talking to the plant manager, Jim Stolzer, I learned that the
company had been in business since the 1930's and he had worked there
for 42 years.  It is a privately owned shop and run by an heir of the
original owners.  Jim was a very nice man working in a shop that is
very friendly to individual and unusual requests.  They can vulcanize
rubber at General Gasket and have supplies of a host of materials for
gaskets and o-rings, etc.

Knowing that many people in the mechanical music hobby need specialized
materials, I would like to recommend Jim.  He did my spring loaded
baby carriage wheels on his lunch hour and he seems to like unusual
projects.  I told him if he didn't mind I would let my mechanical
musical instruments friends know about his and the company's services.
He said if they call, ask for Jim.  His telephone number is
314-771-9550 and the fax number is 314-776-7760.

Hope this helps,
Cynthia Craig
St. Louis, Missouri

P.S.  I checked the local and national Better Business Bureau (BBB)
and found no complaints ever posted.
