Does anyone know the size of the PA-305, Club Combo Duet brew head gasket? Any idea of an equivalent replacement? European Gift says they don't have any more. I removed a fossilized one and am in need of a replacement.

Hey Lisa, did you ever figure this out? I'm also dusting off an old one and it looks like the gasket where the coffee handle twists in is beyond rotten.

I have not. I have searched and tested at least 6 different gaskets. No luck. My closest measurement is 63mm x 53mm x 4mm. I was able to remove the gasket in two pieces. I even sent a search and the measurements to Orphan Espresso. They sent me a hand-cut one with a paper shim, but not at all close. My unit is complete and in perfect condition, but without the brewhead gasket, no espresso! I have considered selling it as parts. Too bad European Gift can't even give the part size, even though they have the diagram.

I have also seen people making silicone molds for crafts from the stuff in the tube at the hard ware store.  Maybe you could do that to send to someone like Orphan espresso to make one for you.

I checked with my engineering student son, and he said it may not be accurate enough because of the size. He's going to check. Also, he has better measuring tools and will try to get the numbers I need. This surely can't be an obsolete part.

That sounds like a possibility, too. I'll keep you posted.
