    Source for washers?

    I have been unable to find a local source for replacement washers for steam radiator shut-off valves. 1.25" O.D., 5/16" thick and larger. Anyone know of a mail-order or online source? Thanks.

    Made my own

    Bought a washer cutter on Ebay; got material from McMaster Carr.  Did all of the old shutoff valves.

    is a specialty house for repair parts; plumbing and heating.  If you can't find a direct replacement in their catalog, do like Ken says and make your own. Sexauer has sheet packing available; catalog #066829 for 1/8" thickness.

    Sexauer (800)431-1872

    Crest/Good is another source for quality repair parts - (800)862-7378

    The people that answer the phones at the above phone numbers presume that you know the catalog numbers of what you want; they get real testy when you start asking questions.  I give out their phone numbers so that you can ask for the contact information of your local rep. who may be more willing to bird dog the part you need.
    Often wrong, never in doubt.
