Posted Thu Aug 1, 2013, 1:10pm Subject: Help taking Sunbeam vacpot apart
A friend of mine runs an antique shop and got a nice-looking old Sunbeam vacuum brewer, but he couldn't get the two halves apart. I was able to help by unhooking the thing that holds the filter-holder thing (sorry for all the technical terminology here) in place, but they still wouldn't budge, and I didn't want to force anything of course. I could turn one against the other, but they seem to be stuck fast together. I'm sure there's something obvious I've missed. Any wisdom?

When I was looking more into the one I bought a few months ago I read somewhere that the two halves can be EXTREMELY difficult to get apart if the gasket is old and dried out. Can't remember exactly what the writeup said but I remember something about potential damage to the pot if it's stuck and not removed carefully. I'll try and remember where I found the info about it.
