	Histonetters and Vendors -

	I need help finding the type of lab timers we like to use.
	Can't seem to find them in any catalog.

	They are a tan/gray, that wind up in the back.
	It is NOT electronic. It is NOT an egg timer
	type from then kitchen.

	There are two "hands", the longer one for the 
	1 minute interval, the shorter one for the 10
	minute interval. 

	It could be set for anywhere from 15 seconds to
	120 minutes by turning the two hands around
	and around the face of the "dial".

	There is a handle on the right side in back, which
	is pulled down to set the timer. It makes a loud 
	obnoxious ringing sounding when time is up.

	There are no makings on the timers to indicate
	who makes them, or the name of this item, or an
	item number.

	And I can't seem to find them in my catalogs.
	And yet I ordered some about 5 years ago from
	a histology catalog. Hopefully, they are still being
	made, and the problem is that I just haven't  
	opened the right catalog yet.

	Any and all help from this group is, as always,
