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.

OLD WORLD KALEIDOSCOPE
Renaissance Kaleidoscope
Forget that the 6-3/4" long body is festooned with Latin phrases and old maps. The stones/beads/glass inside the tube would make designing windows in cathedrals a snap. And hey, that's good work if you can get it. A nice gift for Rosetta window fans, and a must for that special bishop in your life.

$6.95 EACH
TORSO-SHAPED SPRITZER BOTTLES
Torso Bottle
Torso-shaped HDPE bottles. Not shaped like your torso, but more like someone who's in really good shape. In translucent purple, it holds an ounce and stands 3" tall x 1-3/4" at the shoulders with a spritzer top (think: perfume sprayer).

0.1UF 250V CAPACITORS
Capacitor Quartet
These 0.1uF ceramic capacitors have potted radial leads of stranded wire and are rated for up to 250V. Measuring 1-1/2" x 1/2", these are older-type capacitors and are probably more for point-to-point wiring, not PCB mounting.

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™."

HELIX® DOCUMENT TUBE
Down The Tube
Or up the tube, depending. From Helix® comes this expanding document/art tube in black plastic. Starts at 17" long and pulls out to a max of 29" with (6) locking positions in between. Measures 2-1/4" ID and has a  screw cap with an adjustable 32" strap attached.

$7.95 EACH
HELIX® DRAFTING SET
We Feel A Draft
This draftsman's tool set (let's make that draftperson's, OK?) is from Helix®, the king of drafting stuff. Includes a 2-1/4" thumbwheel compass, an 8-1/4" technical compass, 5-1/2" extension arm, pen clamp, (2) extra set-screw threads and heads and (2) spare leads, all in a snap-shut case. We spit on CAD.
