Re: Keeping O-Rings and Rubber Seals for looong periods

if it's not broken don't fix it / most o rings store for a while smeared with rubber grease or lube of makers specification then placed in zip seal bag with air removed (gently squeeze out air and seal) / store out of sunlight. they seem to last a long time bolted into machinery
