Aluminum gaskets...

Question about cutting gaskets from aluminum cans. Should I bother to smooth them out with sandpaper or anything? Anyone ever had a little aluminum shard come off and scrape up your cylinder or anything?

am I just being paranoid?

Re: Aluminum gaskets...

you are being paranoid. Its thin aluminum....when you torque the head down it will give a nice seal.
