It's been so long I don't remember where these things came from, ebay? I looked around but couldn't find them. Not sure if I'm searching for the right thing. Anyway I was looking to get some new lids if its reasonable enough to do. Anyone got a lead?

I started buying them from some guy in Chicago.  They were from medical pills I think.  The pills were bagged inside the container.  I then got some off eBay from a dude in Cali.  I can look through my e-mails to try and find a contact if intrested.

Well I found an email from ebay when I bought them. I think the seller username is cecabu but I can't find them on ebay. I can't figure out how to search for a seller to be honest, only stores. If you can find a contact drez that would be sweet.

I think I bought mine from the same guy.

ETA: yep. So that doesn't help you :-/

That's what I have. I probably won't worry about it. I was going to use them for grain storage and thought it would be nice to have no hole lids. But maybe I will just duct tape them.

Gorilla tape is what I used. They are great for grain.

I was thinking of doing that but they would hold more grain than I might want to move.

I looked through my two e-mail addresses and found nothing.  I think I ordered these under an old Earthlink address that has since been canned.  Sorry.

No big deal, thanks for looking. Gorilla tape will probably win this battle.

They still make them.  It looks like when the adds were created there was a conversion issue.  Mine are stamped 7055 on the bottom.

Same here. Now looking at them it does look bigger than 13 gal.
