I've used an Angel Food Cake Pan many times with success. It is mildly tapered. I've also used a large kitchen pot with the handles removed. You could go into a couple Good Will stores with your handy leatherman tool and see if you find a pot that fits. Card board makes a good shim if there is just a little space. Be sure to wrap some blue painters tape around the new gasket where the edge will fold up to when you glue. It keeps things cleaner. OS Systems PB 300 is what I use--I just don't have as good of luck with Aqua Seal.

the kokatat "plate" method works really well and lining it up is really pretty easy, I do a dozen or so a year and use the plate every time easy clean and your not stretching the gasket as you replace it.
