DAVINCI TREBUCHET KIT
Leo Vinci Kits
Return with us now to those thrilling days of the 15th century, when Leonardo was designing stuff you wouldn't have thought of even if you'd paid attention in class and applied yourself. You choose from these wooden models of his genius designs. His unrealized aerial screw (think helicopter) stands approx 15" tall on a 9" square base and has a canvas canopy. Includes a 12-page manual and all the parts. For ages 9+. The trebuchet (think catapult) is based on his original 1482 design, stands approx 24" tall x 12-3/4" x 4-1/2" and comes with all the parts, including a clay ball to launch at your favorite model castle or your sister. Includes an 8-page instruction book and is for ages 12+. You'll need glue, a ruler and scissors for both, plus some small clamps for the trebuchet.

MULTI-PURPOSE GLUE STICKS

SPST PUSHBUTTON SWITCH
Latch On To This
This SPST latching (push on, push off) pushbutton switch reminds CJ of a cathedral radio cabinet, which means he's no spring chicken, or else he's just nostalgic. But they are indeed pretty retro looking. Rated for 11A at 110VAC and 6A at 220VAC. A pair of right-angle quick-disconnects are on the back. Measure 1-3/8" deep x 1-1/8" wide x 1-1/2" tall with a 5/8" dia button with flattened sides. No obvious way to mount them, but a clever person will figure something out. UL.

SMALL WHITE CHEF'S HAT
One Toque Over The Line
This white polyester chef's hat is approx 7" tall x puffy and has an adjustable hook-and-loop band but at the largest it's still pretty small, maybe a man's size 6-7/8. We think they're from a kid's nutritional program, and the max circumference is about 21", so check your noggin. Front band says "BellyFULL...eat happily ever after™."

MAGNETIC LEVITATION TRAIN KIT
Soap-Box Derby Goes Magnetic
If the soap-box derby were a train race in Japan, this would be the training program. You get a 5" long x 1-1/2" square pine block to carve a train locomotive from, wood and acrylic to make the approx 24" track and mounting frame, plus magnets to levitate the engine. Includes some streamline-ish stickers. You'll need carving materials, sandpaper, paint and glue.

SUNLIGHT REACTIVE COLORED BEADS
Make Solar Jewelry
Take these (250) little translucent beads into the sunlight and they burst into assorted colors faster than you can say "assorted colors." How do they do it? Well, they're UV-reactive, that's how. Mostly pink, purple, rose, yellow and cream and they fade to a nice pearly color inside. Amaze your friends at picnics. Beads measure 5/16" dia x 1/4" with a 5/32" bore. Come with classroom application notes.
