Hardware store?  No, no, no.  Glass shops are cheaper and have 5/32 and 3/16 
inch glass.  My AGA lids are 5/32.  Some of my homemade lids are 5/32 and 
some are 3/16.  I don't have a cat, so I don't have to worry about that, 
although cans of fish flakes and lots of nets, filter components, etc. have 
spent a day or two on any given one of them.  Oh, and my wallet and car keys 
now and then, too.
