airbrush cleaning pot; not sealing cos GLASS is warped?

Yes the glass, not the lid. Has anyone else seen it before? Got one of the small ones from ebay, generic version of the Revell branded and Iwata branded cleaning pots. This one;
Airbrush Cleaning Pot (Vallejo 26005, No)

After a few months noticed it was venting vapour from the threads of the lid, and one day the lid came clean off. under inspection, noticed that the glass itself was deformed around the lip and threads, so much so that it wont screw down at allmnow.

Bought one of the larger yellow lidded ones from Bartsharp.
Airbrush Cleaning Pot (Fengda BD777A, No)

Big conical shaped one. Turns out to be too big for my spray booth and as well will not hold my Aztek safely. After a few weeks noticed the very same issue. Lid is fine, but won't screw closed as glass is warped. Am I just unlucky or does a combination of IPA, white spirit and cellulouse thinner cause glass to melt? If the plastic lids did I'd understand, but the glass? Has anyone else seen this before? Or am I going mad?

Ben M I use a coffee can with two holes cut in the lid. One for the airbrush, one with a bit of foam for venting. Never warped on me and the price is right.

Treehugger I have a similar looking pot (who knows who made it), and there seems to be a filt rim maybe glued on on the inside of the black top, to seal against the glass, I could tell from looking inside the one I have.

As for your particular issue of warped glass. Is this obvious? I mean, is this not something you can observe? Maybe there is no seal against the glass on the inside?

Roy McKay The glass around the threaded area is deformed. I'd take a photo but Storm Ciara is blowing 20mm of rain sideways at an average of 50kmh and both pots are in the shed. And I'm in my pyjamas with a beer. So maybe tomorrow I'll have photographic evidence. I know you should be sceptical, I would be too. Only to have it happen twice to two different pots makes it remarkable. Or else my spray booth is in some form of twilight zone...
