    Wow. Maybe I won't get so many then. J&C used to sell them for about 50 cents each.

    Corning Snap-Seal (tm), No. 1730-2C. Translucent, but a watertight lid. I got mine in Toronto at EfstonScience, but any good lab supply house should have. Probably about $0.75 each.

    These are what I've been using for 3 or 4 years, they are very good. Try a medical equipment supplier since they are intended for gathering samples in, may be cheaper there in larger quantities.

    Well I've learnt something today!

    I never realised that the transparent 50ml self standing plastic centrifuge tubes that we buy in large sterilised bags of around 200 for under £20 a go in work could be used as a 120 film container.

    Any lab supply house should sell them, and a lot less than $3.49 for 3!

    In bulk 20 cents a pot.

    (and very useful if you need to take a sample to the doctor..... if you take the film out first)

    Now track down some in black plastic and you could be in business.

    Well if I obtain the pots for free, there are loads spare that aren't sterile any more, and they only get binned

    I'm not that broke (Yet) that I can't afford two 4" strips of gaffa tape to finish the job that I got a huge roll for a quid from Aldi
    (for our American cousins think a low price version of Walmart)

    And I can write on that with a magi-marker

    And I do have a new delivery of mail order 120 in varying grades from the Ilford boys

    And a load of fresh chemicals

    And an excuse at the weekend to christen a couple of old cameras that fell off ebay

    I think this is going to get horribly predictable :rolleyes:

    Dave I note that the containers mentioned are priced in $. So presumably a long swim away. Where do you get yours from? Thanks

    I checked www.usplastic.com for them, but they didn'y have any that were black and light proof. You can get a box of 100 "see through" sample vials for a few dollars from them. I need to keep looking around since I know that there are other places that will have "light proof" sample containers like this for cheap. Maybe Sciencekit will have them.
