In OG magazine the classified section has an ad for canning lids in 
bulk. Gardener's Kitchen  www.canninglidsusa.com
I just went there and the links to their order page don't work so 
you'd have to call them or write.
(I was just curious about how much a bulk buy would save over 
grocery store prices.)

Interesting to note that I've had other folk mention that their canning 
jars have blown out too. one lady wasn't canning but freezing goat 
milk in them. Temp changes when thawing in a cool water bath are 
enough to wreck these newer jars. They're Kerr and Ball standards 
too. When I did big (pressure) canning jobs, I would never rely on 
Golden Harvest jars but knew the heavier Kerrs would handle the 
job ok. Guess they're all lowering their standards these days.
