Thanks, checked the first link from the address on the picture you posted of the bottom of the container, but, they required you buy a full case. I'll try the second link as they will sell just 1. Have some spare anti corrosion cardboard squares from die sets I will try. Thanks for the idea!

Do you let the cylinder sit directly on the desiccant?

Hairtrigger, I personally don't use desiccant packs, just VCI chips, since my cylinders are stainless steel, I oil them, and there's not much air in the container in the first place after the cylinders are inserted. Having said that, I think no harm could come from contact with a food grade desiccant.

All old DropBox links are broken, so I'm reposting my images:
