Wherever you connect the earth tag make sure it is well connected to the bulk of the material since the surface layer does not conduct.
    yea.. i sussed that one out in the end.. its kind of suprising that anodized aluminium is none conductive

    I went to school in Blackburn ...
    you poor sod... i went to boarding school in shropshire (not as posh as it sounds)

    will do something but a bit different
    if you can get your hands on a pump that will pull a good hard vacuum a vacuum plate full of o-rings might come in handy.

    What do you want them for?

    Could you not use a length of o-ring material?
    You can buy kits for making o-rings, which are essentially a length of round rubber in rubber/viton/whatever spec, and some glue/bonding/vulcanising stuff.
    I'm sure you can probably get lengths of square material aswell, which would be far better than oil soaked seals.

    I bought a set of o-rings but because they are round and the rubbers fairley hard you dont get enough surface area for the vaccum, it tends to role across the rubber, my larger rubber ring is flat and compresses under the force, the o-rings dont :(
