    Default Got some new washers

    I have managed to source some different style banjo washers, they are called Dowty Washers and were developed by the Dowty corporation for use in the aircraft industry originally but now they are used in the hydraulic industry too. Basiclly they are aluminium banjo washers but with a bonded non nitrile rubber insert on the inside so the rubber wont distort or disolve and therefore create a more secure seal, with having the rubber insert they do not need to be tightened as much as a standard crush washer and are also re-usable. I bought one to try for fitment and they are perfect, they have a tiny self centreing rubber lip on the inside of the rubber insert too. Going to order the rest on Monday as they are only 60p each, a bit dearer but worth it IMO.
