Bialetti 18-cup coffee pot: gasket needed...

I have a wonderful 18-cup Bialetti coffee pot that I got as a gift, but now I need to replace the rubber gasket, and cannot find one larger than the 12-cup size, in any of the coffee-and-supplies shops I've been in. I went to the ones on St. Laurent near Jean Talon (about 5 of them) and struck out.
From outside edge to outside edge, the gasket I need measures 95 mm, but all I can come up with are 90mm ones.
Even someone I ordered from online who promised they'd fit the 18-cup pot wound up sending me 90 mm gaskets. So sad...
Anyone have any suggestions? Friends with spare gaskets lying around?
Thanks in advance!

    1. Try contacting the Canadian Bialetti distributor:

      c/o Stonehaven Group
      1880 Ellice Avenue
      Winnipeg, Manitoba R3H 0B9

      Good luck!

      1. I have an update. In fact i realized later my pot wasn't really a Bialetti, but a "bialetti-type" pot so it wasn't the same size standard. Never found the right gasket for it so gave up and bought the largest true Bialetti pot I could find, which has solved the gasket problem.

        Thanks for your suggestion, kpzoo!
