Yes. I used to not but im getting back unto sugar LC's so i purchased some silicone gaskets from Amazon but figured i might as well use them.Fucking brilliant. I like the five hole design. When I run micropore through the PC I have different results though. You use rings under there?
Its been awhile since i shared my filter design so i figure might as well do it again.
I swear by these filters and they are very cheap to make.
I get micropore tape at CVS at the pharmacy, they keep it behind the counter and not in resale packaging but they hook me up with 6 rolls 2" wide for $4.00. This will last me several years.
I purchase the eazyfelt at hobby lobby. For a 12x14 sheet it costs me $ 1.07 after tax. There are different colors also but i prefer white so i can identify contamination growing on the filter, it has happened.
Eazyfelt is matted polyfill and when used in conjunction with micropore tape, i would put these up against SFD's.
I still use the 5 hole pattern as shown
A take a piece of micropore tape and lay the felt as centred as possible.
Place it over the holes and take my fingernail and push the tape down around the perimeter of the felt to make sure there is no gap between the felt and lid. In the PC the filters get wet but then the tape dries like freaking concrete firmly holding the felt in place.
That is paint on my hand. I was painting my ceiling that day. Spent my vacation working on a room remodel and it turned out excellent. I wont post it through because my wife already posted it all over Facebook and in that slight chance 1 of her 1,000 friends is here at topia, well my anonymity would jeopardized.
