The other half fixed

Thomas arrives from C&W Appliance Service to finish repair of the Wolf induction cooktop.

Step 1, C&W replaced the glass top, which displayed tiny fractalizing cracks. The glass was not packed with a replacement gasket. To remove the glass top, the team sliced into the existing gasket, leaving this rough edge, visible in top image and below:

Step 2 — today. Thomas begins by lifting the cooktop out of the counter, then uses a knife and razor blade to remove what remains of the gasket from the top of the counter and underside of the cooktop. Steven stepped in after with paper towels and Goof Off to remove traces of the gunk left behind.

The new gasket rolled up neatly in the plastic bag, and the entrails of the old gasket to the right.
