    What a great idea! I have an old 3600 that needs a gasket. Thanks for the info.

    We've been known to do this with cardboard for head gaskets on cars. Works for heavy equipment too. They soak up the oil and seal quite nicely. We've done it for years.

    I had the same thing happen and since I was using the Vita Mix, I took a clean thick rubberband and put in the groove around the lid. It worked great. Fortunately I had one of these rubberbands on hand. Not sure what I would have done otherwise. I love my Vita Mix and don't want to but a new one, so I will try the foam idea in the future. Thanks

    I was wondering, would the rolls of stuff you buy to install replacement screens work? They are made to hold the screen in the channels on doors/windows that have screens.

    You can also get natural rubber tubing from a lot of hardware stores, 1/4" diameter will press nicely into the groove. It takes somewhere between 1 and 2 feet, and you can cut the ends on a diagonal to match up with a foolproof seal. Compresses to make perfect seal, but returns to elastic shape for storage. Easy to pop it out to clean in the groove from time to time.
