Subject: Leyden Jars



We have some small leyden jars (about 15cm high, 10cm diameter) that
were purchased during the late cambrian era. They look like they were
made of beakers with conductive paint inside and out and a
ball-topped springy contact on the inside. I need to replace some
that suffered a gravitationally-induced shock load earlier this year.

Anyone know of a place that sells something like these? I've checked
Arbor, SW, and Pasco and can't find anything.
