Gasket removal tip
Go buy yourself a scalpel with a box of #11 blades. This is an awesome tool anyway, but it's just the thing to scrape off the gasket if it's a ROYAL PAIN like mine was. Made by TransTec.....make a note. Most of it came out, but there were LOTS of places where it was almost welded to the channels.
When you use this, use 2 hands so you have lots of control. Cause you really don't wanna screw up those channels......it's ALUMINUM..lol...and that scalpel blade is Surgical STEEL.......
Also, scrape that blade on a flat piece of the bottom BACKWARDS every once in awhile.....to kind of dull it a little bit.......and flip it over and use the other side too.....It's surgical steel, but it will get some burrs from use.......so you can scrape it backwards on a wide flat piece (like where the pan sits) to get those gone..........sounds a lot more complicated explaining it than it is once you get going.........z
