Sometimes your only solution is a lead washer. I purchased this kit from A-Zon. It can punch a variety of sizes and has a centering pin. So I decided to try some.

  To start I got some fishing sinkers. Melted them with a torch. While still warm hammered it to about 1/8".

  Then I used the 1" inch punch followed by the 5/8" punch and came out with this. IMG_4011__1599672973_86966.jpg 

Comments on the punch set.

  Reasonable price and quite solid. I think when you punch out the inner diameter the process slightly increases the outer ring by a bit. It is not very easy to center the pin on your second (inner) punch as the pin does not protrude very much ...but it can be done. Mine was not perfect...but I have learned.
   I could also use this to make pump leathers.
  There are more expensive kits out there that will do the inner/outer in one shot.....but not cheap.

Nice kit with pretty decent results, Ed.  I've got a whole bunch of lead here, but only one lantern that uses lead washers, and I bought those already.

I think fishing sinkers are pretty much pure lead.

The so-called "centering" punch set like that that I bought had a center pin so sloppy there was no way to make a concentric gasket with it.

I broke down and bought an expensive set made by Mayhew (or someone in France). It can mount up to three sizes, making gaskets that are truly concentric in one punch.

Set up here to make a cap gasket and a pip for... well, I forget.

These are also very sharp and good quality steel, so they should last a while.

I should note that punching a bunch of holes at once takes some force. I use a 1 lb hammer and a goodly swing on a plastic cutting board, set on the concrete floor. It also helps a lot to spray the punches down with silicone spray every few uses.
It's priceless until someone puts a price on it.

I was thinking about casting some lead gaskets for the Aida lantern because I wanted to remove the torch and clean the pickup screen. I 'd buy more from Brite-Lyt but the shipping is more than the parts, so I was thinking about making a mold in some plaster of paris and pouring from my lead pot. Hmmm....

pitmanmarine on eBay sells them and shipping is not bad. Once there get some cleaning needles and he will adjust shipping.
