Hi Bob.

There are suppliers and then there *suppliers*.  When it comes to
staining equipment I've always found Thomas to be the best.  You
will find the jars you seek on page 1365 of the Thomas 1998--1999
catalog with or without screw tops.  You'll also find the Coors
porcelin cover slip staining racks which I find to be infinitely
superior to the Columbia jars.  Try like it, as the old
commercial used to say.
