Anyone know of a low cost source for
screw top jars like this?
Size needed is about 60ml or 2 fl oz.
Quantity needed is about 30.
Have found some via google etc but wondered
if there was a cheaper source.
If they sold instant coffee in 60ml jars, it wouldn't take too long...
My father stores screws, nails, whatever fits, in coffee/jam jars
whose lids are screwed to the bottom of a shelf...
The only drawback is that sometimes the jar doesn't properly engage to
the lid and then you have to find a new jar...

And presumably spend 15 minutes picking up the nails/screws and
tiptoeing carefully around the shards of glass....!
I was thinking recently about those wonderful little tins that tobacco
is (or used to be - I don't smoke) sold in. Measuring about 3x2x1 inch
with a pop-off lid. Wonderful for storing small things in.
Helps to know a pipe smoker I guess, and they seem to be a rare breed!
You can get similar (if slightly smaller) metal tins with mints in. I
believe the brand name is Altoids or Marks & Spencer sell them as "Curiously
Strong Mints". Very useful little tins and the mints are good too!
Robertsons 4-pack of tiny jars (including jam) are only 79p. They're
just perfect for experimenting with obscure finish mixes of shellac
and ochre pigments.

I sourced some jars similar to those a couple of years ago, mail order
from a laboratory equipment supplier - can't remember which one but a
quick look on Kellys (http://www.kellys.co.uk /)will bring up a few
