    Try Orleans Glass. I bought some glass from them when I built my sump. They had a good selection of different types of glass, and are not as expensive as M&T.

    I'd be willing to bet they would probably have alot of scrap glass around and would charge very little for it.

    Brown & McFarelane (spelling?) is another place commonly recommended.

    Cheers!
    There is nothing so permanent as a temporary measure.

    yes.. brown and macfarlane are ok too.
    you can always ask them for scraps, and get yourself a little glass cutter and a square iron. on thin glass.. its super easy.. try it first on scraps but i tell ya.. not that hard to DIY that
