SQUARE GROUND GLASS 2" x 2"
GROUND GLASS
One wiseacre assumed we meant any package leaving our shipping room that once had a glass object in it. That is a malicious rumor. . . Ground glass is thin plate glass, the surface of which has been physically ground or acid-etched to create a grainy, grayish, opaque surface. Use it to produce an image from a lens or lens system. Even a simple magnifier, held between the ground glass and, say, a window, will produce an image of the window scene on the ground glass. Ground glass has another magical property: it is opaque to any object viewed at a distance, but not if that object is in direct contact with the glass surface. A necessary element of your optical education. #2728 (square) is 2"sq x 1/32" thick. #2610 (rectangular) is 3-1/2" x 4-3/8" x 1/16" thick.

24 OZ PLASTIC SPRAY BOTTLE
Spray And Whatever
This 24-oz white HDPE spray bottle is in the now-traditional spray bottle shape and size. Measures 11" tall x 4" x 2-1/4" and  the nozzle twists from mist to stream setting so it will work equally well washing windows or squirting the cat.

4" 45 GRIT CUT-OFF WHEELS
Just Cut It Off
Our big, double-layer cut-off wheel special has (5) type 1, 45-grit industrial wheels at 4" dia x 1/16" thick along with a 3/8" arbor and 2-3/8" long 1/4" mandrel. Max 19K rpm. Don't forget your safety glasses.

WIDE-MOUTH 250ML  BOTTLES
Sky Cap
These clear wide-mouth PETE bottles hold 250ml (approx 8-1/2 oz) and measure a 3" x 2" oval at the bottom x 4-1/2" tall tapering to a 1-5/16" ID mouth and a gasketed sky blue plastic screw cap.

SMOKED GLASS PAPERWEIGHT
Worry Glass
Need some comfort? Want a prettier paperweight? These hunks of melted, smoked glass have pooled to approx  3-5/8" x 2-1/8" x 5/8" thick, and weigh about 1/3 lb. They're flat-bottomed with rounded tops, like a girl we used to date in college, or sort of like cool flip-phones that never ring. Bound to make you feel better.

MILITARY SNOW SHOES
Magnesium Kicks For Bigfoot
Our each is a pair of magnesium snow shoes from the U.S. Military. Definitely not available at your local Feets Locker. Measure 46" long x 12" at their widest with a frame around woven cable construction, and you'll get buckled bindings and instructions with them. Non-snowbound? They look really cool on the wall. You could also invent a dandy squash-like racquet game with these, or make a catcher's mask for your horse. We don't have many of these in stock -- so hurry!

CLEVIS SLIP HOOK
Get The Hook
This forged-steel clevis slip hook, without latch, is bigger than it claims. Marked 5/16" but it's actually a 7/16" dia pin, 7/16" clevis, and is 9/16" thick. (The rewards of surplus.) The hook ID is 1-1/16" and it's 4" long from pin to bottom, grade 43, and rated for a 2,875-lb load.

GLASS BOTTLE CAP REMOVER
Twist & Shout!
You say you're having trouble twisting off those twist-off bottle caps? You'll shout "Eureka!," or at least "Beer!," when you stick your neck into this spring-loaded bottle-cap remover. Measures an easy-to-grip 3-3/8" tall x approx 2" ID mouth and one good turn opens your beverage. We'll pick red, black or blue.

CLEAR POLYSHRINK SHEETS
Shrink Plastic
Incredible stuff!! And even better than those dinky cutouts you used to make! Our each is a pack of (8) 8" x 10-1/2" shrinking plastic sheets that start clear and stay clear, or a pack of (8) assorted sheets, (2) each in clear, frosted, gray and black. Draw a design, write a message, create a sign, whatever. Cut it out, bake it in a 350° oven for about 3 minutes, and it shrinks to 45% of its original size. Problem with certain pencils and markers on the slick sheets? Try a light sanding (320-400 grit) before writing on it. (The surface will be more opaque.) What a fun way to make small errors become insignificant!
