The video lab I worked in for years used a larger version of the teflon "cookie sheets" where
slick, nonstick surfaces were required.  Sandy uses sheets purchased from Bed Bath and Beyond in her quilting studio.  I use slivers of the same sheets for windsavers.  And they do cut very easily with scissors, rolling blade cutters and razor blades, even though they are very tough and durable in use.  I can measure the thickness if anyone wants to know.

Realizing I've never used and probably never WILL use a 'gasket', but what  
about Silpat...anyone think it's remotely useable? Not sure if it'd  be 
easy to cut. Mine doesn't have that border shown in the video.


or this newer generic version I just found online (much less  expensive AND 
able to be cut):

I once used red hot water bottle rubber. It was the correct  thickness. 
Unfortunately, the water bottles these days aren't smooth. They have  a pebble 
grain finish., and too thick anyway.No good. I'm still thinking. (Every  
time my family throws something out, I study it for possible harmonica  
uses.....and 'I' do the garbage.  lolol)
