There are only 3 gaskets and they are 1/4" fiberglass rope gaskets available probably anywhere.

I used the kits they sell for wood stove doors sold at any hardware store, they come with glue and it sticks great. I used 5/8" rope for the ash door and made a wide gasket because there was some bent/rusted metal on the base.

I forgot about the fire door and ash pit door gaskets, which are 5/8" flat rope gaskets. All gaskets are glued with regular contact cement, spray can.
