ITEMS JUST OFF THE TRUCK

MAGNETIC FLASHING GYROSCOPE
Flashing Gyroscope On A Stick
At least three times as much fun as it ought to be, this magnetic gyroscope is festooned with multicolored LEDs that flash while it spins around a hand-held set of 2-1/2" dia wheelie tracks. Spins as long as you keep giving it a little wiggle, and you can't beat that. Includes (3) button-cell batteries for the flashers.

17' LONG SINGER® RULED MEASURING TAPE
Sew Easy
Basting tape, aka tacky measuring tape. This stuff is used to stick pieces of cloth together and measure them so you don't have to use fifteen pins and a wooden ruler. Our version is 17' long and has 1/8" and 1mm markings that repeat every 12". Tape is fairly tacky, reusable without leaving a residue, and measures 3/4" wide. From Singer®.

MAP-READING BOOK
Orienteering, Anyone?
"Map and Compass" by Cliff Jacobson is a 67-page paperback (from the redundant "Basic Essentials™" collection) devoted to teaching map and compass use for hiking in the great outdoors. Packed with information, it's heavily illustrated and useful for beginners and veteran hikers alike. Includes appendices with common terms and map symbols.

VACUUM HOSE EXTENSION
Nature Abhors A Short Vacuum
You say your vacuum cleaner won't reach your schmutz? We feel your dirt. This flexible 1/2" dia PVC vacuum-cleaner extension hose measures approx (4) feet  long and stretches to approx (13) feet (ignore the 20' on the box). Comes with (4) adapters to fit a plethora of vacuum cleaners (yes, vacuums come in plethorae), which the manufacturer says includes most vacuums.

NYLON PURPLE CLUTCH
Snazzy Purple Clutch
Measures 6-1/2" x 3-1/2" in attractive and yes, snazzy, purple nylon with a zipper on the long side and removable 6" wrist strap. Includes a 3" x 3" elastic pocket on the outside and a pair of 1-1/2" hook-and-loop straps on the back, which would make it a cinch to mount on bicycle handlebars or your belt when you're not clutching it.

LED LIGHTED FRESNEL MAGNIFIER
Pivoting Fresnel
Magnify stuff with this 2" x 1-3/4" acrylic Fresnel and light it up with the little white LED light on a pivot. Both are in a 3" x 1-7/8" frame, along with a pair of AG-10 batteries that you could replace if you have a tiny Phillips screwdriver. Magnification is approx 2X and you don't pronounce the S in Fresnel but you do capitalize the F, just FYI.

.45 MM COPPER CRAFT WIRE
String Someone Along
All your best beaders know that there's nothing like metallic wire for stinging stuff on. You pick from these 7-strand (although you need a loupe to tell it's not a single strand) copper- or gold-colored bead wire, .45mm and .3mm respectively. You get 40 feet on a dispenser reel that actually works.

120VAC 18 INCH LED FIXTURE
Long, Bright & Skinny
Add your own jokes. This super-bright Utilitech 120VAC LED fixture measures 18" x 2" x 1/2" thick, which makes it perfect for an under-counter light, but useful pretty much anywhere. Has (22) bright white LEDs and draws only 3W. In a white plastic case with a polarized plug on a white 6-foot cord, it includes an inline thumb switch to add if you want. Includes (2) screws to fit the keyed mounting holes on the back. UL.

STRIATED RUBBER FEET (4) PACK
That Would Be "Martian"
You've found perfect tires for your model of an LEV-SFC (that would be Lunar Exploration Vehicle, Stable Foot Class). StableFeet" are groovy blue plastic tubes, closed (except for a small hole) at one end. They're 3-1/4" long, and are made to fit over a standard 1-1/8" steel tube, like, say, the T-legs of an ironing board. If you don't use the striated rubber extenders to stabilize an ironing board or dress up tricycle handlebars, though, you'll have more left for your MEV-SFC. Our each is a package of (4).
