After nearly a 14 hour work day in which I felt like I was fighting the California wildfires with a leaky squirt gun, I finally escaped to the shop to attempt a few moments of peace and productivity.
The rubber washer on our humidifier reservoir rotted thought after 4 years or so of use. The rest of the machine works great, so I figured I’d try to do a DIY washer replacement.
The first piece of harder plastic I tried cracked, so I opted for some cork from a coaster. Thinking back, a slice off a wine cork may have been ideal. But anyway, here’s the trimmed cork washer replacement in place.
It works about as well as a cork washer might. Not perfect, but better than nothing, and it got me into the shop for a few minutes.
