Can you buy paint pot lids?
« on: August 15, 2022, 07:42:22 PM »
I'm talking about these badgers -



- the 20ml paint pots you can buy (I get them from Ampulla) that come with lids included. Whenever I search for them or ask a supplier, they always seem to come as a pair, but the lids always perish before the pots do, so I'm replacing the lids but not the pots (leading to a huge pile of useless paint pots without lids).

Anyone know anywhere that supplies just the (roughly 28mm diameter) push-on lids?

I thought I had, ages ago, but now all I find are those little 3ml dudes in strips.

Those are the very fellas for me! Please write yourselves out a voucher for a 30min foot rub and present it to the associate of your choice. Many thanks.

Are these the right ones?

Definately.  I ordered Thursday morning and they arrived today, despite a postal strike, weekend and a Bank Holiday.  Excellent service.  :D

Already replaced a few lids using the advice on the site. Easy to do and no lost fingers.... yet!
