If you have a retort and are looking for new gaskets for them Dusty Smith has found a source for ordering them since Dixie Canner no longer sells retort equipment.

Thanks to Dusty,

Just installed today.  Spoke with company.  This is what they recommend.  Ordered from ace hardware for ten dollars per retort.  Will let you know how it works.

Hi Dusty,


Your local Ace Hardware number is 229-524-1380. Per our conversation you already know someone who works there, so ask them if they have Rutland Item#96N-6 which is the Gasket kit 7 foot by 1/2inch rope. We are able to ship directly to customers if you are unable to find what you need in a store near you. Please call us at 1-800-544-1307 to speak with one of our Customer Service Specialists.


Thank you,


Toni Rodgers | Customer Service
