I find metric copper gaskets washers easily at the hardware store.
Hand picked. My dual disc front brake set up does not leak a dribble..
:rolleyes:
 
Beware...

There's a flood of crap on the market and that's suspiciously cheap for full-on copper washers.
interesting just got a pack

Nah I'm all tired and weak after a day cutting, splitting, stacking a branch off a diseased ash tree in the yard. Quit for the day about half way through the splitting. But got all the brush hauled.
Should be about 1-1/2 cord of firewood when the whole tree is in the rack. Got about 10 ash trees to do around the ranch, some quite a bit bigger than this one. Sad, they were nice trees.

Are you splitting by hand or with a log splitter? Makes me tired snd sore just thinking about it.

Have dropped, split, and stacked in the racks, 7 ash trees this year. Go back and forth from a gas powered splitter to hand splitting depending on my back, shoulders, and energy level, last three have been all hand split. (chain saw stumps and crotches) Have 4 more to go. Then several more at a neighbors. I've added another 25' of 4' wide 7' tall to the storage racks this year,

Also help a friend who's slowing down a bit with his fire wood cutting after his heart attack. I can still do a truckload of wood in a day but I now buy smaller trucks ;^)

I have read that such physical work is better for us than working out. I expect you'll be around for some time.
