OLD Victory refrigerator gasket source?
Hi everyone here. I have a very old SS 1940s Victory fridge with remote compressor that was probably custom-made to fit the space. It's in perfect working condition and uses a waxed fabric hollow-core gasket that wedges in the bakelite side panels. This is the only fridge I have. Unfortunately when I last had it worked on, they guesstimated incorrectly the size of gasket I'd need. It was expensive so I tried different DIY solutions until I finally gave up and ordered what I thought was the correct size. However, it too didn't fit as it is solid core and I need hollow.
Victory has been no help and I'm at a loss. This type used to be used commonly especially in walk-in units, and I can't imagine I have the only fridge that still uses them.
I'm attaching pics of the incorrectly sized hollow-core so you can see to what I'm referring. The other is of the solid core one and is to illustrate how it attaches. Thanks for any and all suggestions, especially if this is no longer available.
