So a few months ago I got this little Vrevetto omg Garantita Mignon 2 Tazze stovetop espresso maker, It works pretty good for what it is. However in my fitleing around with it, i.e. dose-age, grind size, water level.. the rubber gasket, which was very old to begin with, started to break down.

Now I thought to myself I should be able to just get one of the tiny ones from the Bialetti Moka pots, but the Vrevetto is about half the diameter of the smallest Moka Pot. And I have been looking around for months trying to find something that would for the gasket, with no luck.

So my question is: is there any one out here who knows were I can get these gaskets from? if not, i am willing to take suggestion on how to make my own or get it custom made.

the outer diameter is 1 3/4th inches while the internal diameter is 1 1/2 inches.

Welcome to the board. You don't mention the thickness but the easiest way to make a replacement is to go to your auto parts store and buy some gasket materials. Use the old one to trace around then cut out with whatever tool you like.
