    Dunno. Got mine for free from a friend. They gotta be from some kind of wine bottle, somewhere. The thing is an inch in diameter. I tapered it with a razor utility knife. Perfect.

    If I struck out at my local hardware for either rubber or cork, I'd actually go to a wine shop. Oft times the clerks will help you out. With or without a purchase of the bottle. They sometimes have a collection of corks.

    Be sure and get the inch one. 3/4" is not enough even wrapped in black tape.

    A cork from a champagne bottle or some other bubbly, even if non alcoholic, should do the trick.

    We have a bunch of rubber stoppers at work.

    There is a size chart here:

    If you think your oil is dirty enough to check the screen then it is time to change oil anyway. Just my 2$

    If you can find a homebrew supply store, they stock what you are looking for.

    Hi Shrekbelly,
    Go to widgetco.com, they will have all the stoppers/plugs you need. In rubber or cork. Buy a few extras for your friends!

    Lowes or Home Depot in the hardware bins, they carry a variety of rubber stoppers. Tractor Supply may also have them.

    Most hardware stores carry rubber corks in a divided drawer like their bolts and screws. Ask an experienced clerk as I have found some do not know what or where they are displayed.
