CRISPY OVEN COOKER MAT
Crispy Mat
Call it the fat-free oven mat. It's a 14-5/8" square grid, with 3/16" mesh, coated with PTFE (polytetrafluorethylene), a standard non-stick surface whose name you'd recognize. The manufacturer, Home Solutions®, recommends it for pizza, chicken nuggets, oven fries, rolls, baguettes, fish sticks and anything else you want to cook crispy on an oven rack.

Ivy League Pushpins

12" LONG TAILORS SHEARS
Shear Monsters
These stainless steel tailors' shears are sized halfway between "Edward Scissorhands" and "my grandfather was a cutter in the garment district." At 12" long they're perfect for folks who do a lot of heavy duty snipping or are just tired of wimpy little scissors. And yes, please don't run with them.

WOODBURNING PROJECT BOOK

1.5 VDC VIBRATOR MOTOR
Shake A Tail Feather?
This tiny vibrator motor spins approx 1300 rpm at 1.5VDC and measures just 3/8" long x 5/32" dia with a cam-less 3/32" long x 1/32" shaft. The cam-less-ness makes it vibration-less. So you could say that it's a vibration motor without the vibration. Has 7/8"-long tinned leads for power.

120 VAC VACUUM MOTOR
This Sucks Big Time
But we love these vacuum cleaner motors with rotor. Draw 600W at 120VAC and the manufacturer rates them for 2.2 cu M/min (80cfm) on the blow and 16kPa (4.72"/Hg) when sucking up. CJ approximates that they spin at about 2,000-ish rpm, like most vacuum cleaner motors. Measure 4-1/4" dia at the hood for the rotor x 3-11/16" thick.

WHITTLING PROJECT BOOK
Whittle While You Work
Don't just sit there on the porch--whittle something so your kids don't think you're past it. The Little Book of Whittling has detailed instructions for beginners with (18) different projects, all of them cute little things (spoon, duck, birds, canoe, whistle, backscratcher, fish, fork, like that) to carve from sticks you find laying around outside. All you add is a jackknife and a porch. Moms who buy this for their kid automatically become a whittler's mother.
