    I'm doing a bit of a project and I need test tubes by tomorrow. Do they sell chemistry sets with test tubes at the local walmart? I have access to no labs and do not have my own right now.

    Time to head to the local bar and start doing test tube shots. :biggrin: Is it essential you have test tubes, or do you just need anything glass to do a reaction in? Cheap shotglasses maybe?

    What I'm looking for is a container that has a small radius to height ratio, is there something else I could use? I couldn't think of anything.

    That looks awfully expensive to get what looks like 3 test tubes.

    Shooter glasses? They're the tall, skinny shot glass type things. Maybe small bud vases in a craft store? I'm not sure if they'd have any clear glass ones, but might. How many do you need?

    Moonbear- that's what I was thinking. Florist shops often have glass or plastic vials for miniature flowers. I've also run across tubes with caps at army surplus stores.
