Rich, you are a fountain head of knowledge!

I just noticed Permatex has a high temp (500F) Black RTV for optimal color coordination. :D

I think they have also upped the black to 600F-700F for short time periods. The gray is 700 continuous which is quite good when you start looking for 500F+ flexible gasket material.

All interesting things you pickup from a lifetime in heavy industry.

Should probably set that roaster up with a CO2 fire suppression system. 8)

Congrats Alan,

I couldn't get enough of the Ethiopian I bought from you. It stayed so good, for so long; a real surprise! It was the best commercial coffee I ever purchased.
