Kidney water gauges
Posted by: Ian Vinton (

Can anybody tell me what the seal is between the body and float of the kidney water level gauge as used on the Stanleys. In the box of bits there is the remains of a folded copper washer which is about the right size but is this the correct item or is there some form of gasket. If it is the copper washer can anybody point me in the direction of a source for a new one.

Hi Ian,
I have just had a look at the Kidney gauge that came with my 735, unfortunatly there is not a seal fitted, athough it should have one for sure, I would say that the seal is defiantly a copper washer which sits in the recess of the main body, I would think 30thou thick, soft copper, you may have to make one, not much help I'm afraid, but a start, Jeff.
