...simple home brew....  stretch out wax paper on a very flat table and 
tape it down. Put a very small bead of silicone sealer dow nthe gasket 
surface and lay it silicone side down on the wax paper. Let it dry. you 
cna then repeat this on the other side.
Now when you install the gasket you have a solid gasket to keep it in 
line and the little bead of silicone takes care of any surface 
I've now reused the same pan gasket 6 times and still no leaks or need 
to over tighten

side line ...almost bought JW's business when he offered. ...just didn't 
have the time     :-)
