Not sure if you're being facetious, but just make your own with a drill and drillbit.

Amazon is probably your best bet. You might even get lucky and find quick shipping.

Ok, well sent him 6 buckets to replace the drilled one I broke..and here was his response;

got your buckets!!!!!! thank you, this is a delivery with much thought behind it. these are good quality buckets, with even better quality lids with them. i will use them for shrimp cages, and start drilling them out when i have some time. a gift that is exactly what i need, and that can be used for a long period of time. extremely glad to get these. you did not have to replace the broken bucket.


Now when someone appreciates like this...you know why I felt the need to replace the bucket I broke.

His appreciation is what my post was about. It wasn't about me. All I did was replace something I broke. The least I could do

dumpster dive behind a restaurant and retrieve a bucket-clean it out and drill a few holes-works every time

You joke, I know, but- I was in the tile business in a past life and ordered 5 and 3 gallon buckets by the pallet.Ordered some with my company logo on them. It was like $2.xx per bucket with logo, at pallet quantity.They arrived from China 6 months later and were so thin and cheap I was embarassed to have my logo on 'em. As a side note, they made pretty good bait buckets.

It's awesome when you drop a bucket 1 ft and it breaks.
