You could make one, starting with the syringe, but it won't work as is, of course.

Sorry, I thought you were asking for a bubble counter. Since you are looking for a drop checker, the thread I linked to is totally unrelated. I saw the syringe thought of the wrong thing.

That said, I have no idea how you can turn a syringe into a drop checker. Not really sure "why" either since you can by the glass bubbles for a few bucks on the big auction site.

If you search for "drop checker" on this site there should be plenty of DIY project popping up.
