Cannister and Spice Jar Seals/gaskets?

Anybody know a good place to order replacements gaskets to seal spice jars or old canisters?  Do you have to order sheets of silicone and cut them yourself? I found some old vintage stuff at local thrift shops but need to now find seals to make them work well.

Some Vintage Wheaton spice jars with the lids that has a bar that flips over the top to lock them in, measured the inside and outside dimensions and look to be 1 3/4" x 2 1/4".  Also some vintage cracker barrel glass canisters that have inside/outside dimensions of 3" x 3 3/4".  All of them seem to be 1/16" in thickness.
 
They look similar to these images I pulled off the internet.

There seems to be an assortment of sizes available. If you find a size that is close but a little small, they probably can be made to fit by soaking in really hot water for a few minutes, then putting on the jar.
 
Rubber canning gasket, they are listed as re-usable.
Good luck!

LOL yeah the bigger ones are the 1 3/4 inch ones not so much =(  One would think with the popularity of spice jars they would be more easy to find in this smaller size.
