The Right Stuff--gasket making

When I use The Right Stuff, I have typically gotten the pressurized can. I inevitably don't use the whole can and must the time it clogs up and I tear open the can with a screwdriver by the time I am done unplugging it.

Has anyone had better luck with the non pressurized versions like this 5oz version that goes in a caulking gun? Do they last when you don't use them for 4 or 5 months? https://www.amazon.com/Permatex-9907...t+stuff+gasket

I use those at work, but they are definitely more cumbersome to use. I use a tube well before it dries up, so I can't speak as to how long it lasts. I wouldn't expect it to last any longer than the pressurised tube.

You do know the clog seals up the can, right?

You're supposed to pull out the clog to let the fresh Stuff out the next time you use it.

Assuming it's not the hardness of a diamond and you can extract it from the tip.

It isn't that it doesn't get hard---it is that when I pull up the plug, 90% of the time, it breaks off down in the bottom of the top (with the angled squirty end unscrewed) and I can't get it to flow even when the top is back on. Like I said, most of the time it clogs and not every time. Maybe I just have poor technique...
