Emergency Kilt Repairs!
Finally, plaid duct tape. We think this is Clan MacNeon tartan because of the digital red, yellow, blue and green pattern. You get a 10-yard roll of approx 2" wide tape.

PADDLE TOGGLE SWITCHES
Fat Toggle
This DPST toggle switch has a big 13/16" x 5/8" paddle, a plastic spacer between the two sets of quick-disconnect contacts on the back, and is rated for up to 16A at 125VAC and 10A at 250VAC, 1/8 and 1/3 HP respectively. Measures 1-1/4" wide with 1/8" ID mounting wings. UL/CSA.

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.

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.

LED NIGHT LIGHT
324-Month Night Light
This cylindrical 120VAC night light plugs in to a standard electrical outlet, measures 4" tall x 1-1/2" dia and has a single white LED that's rated for 100,000 hours. At an average of ten hours of nightly darkness year-round, that means that you'll need a new one in 27 years. We can't guarantee we'll still have them in stock then, so be safe and order a few.

SONIC-SENSITIVE UFO ROBOT
The Shy Extraterrestrial
This extremely cute alien peeks out and waves his arms from the top of his UFO, which spins in circles, but when you yell at him, or make any sharp, loud noise, he ducks back down into his spacecraft, as most aliens would, and goes quiet. Measures 4-5/8" dia x 4-1/2" tall when he's in up-alien mode. Simple assembly required. Includes an 18-page manual with assembly instructions and sonic-movement challenges. You add a trio of "AAA" earth batteries.

DAVINCI AERIAL SCREW HELICOPTER 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.

12VDC REVERSIBLE MABUCHI MOTOR
Look Into This Motor
This older (let's say vintage) but unused blue enamel reversible Mabuchi DC motor has a little window on one side, so you can watch it work. It's rated for 1.5-12VDC. At 6V it draws 30mA, stalls at 260mA and spins at approx 600 rpm. At 12VDC it draws 320mA, stalls at 2.5A and spins approx 1350 rpm. Measures 1-3/8" long x 1-11/32" dia with flattened sides and dual 3/32" shafts, one just under 3/8" and one at 1/4". Has a pair of 5" leads.

HELMET, SWISS MIL. STEEL W/HEAD PAD, STRAP    (IB)
For people who don't get themselves into a lot of wars, the Swiss army has really nice infantry helmets. We've got some that are, as you'd expect, very lightly used. In dark OD, 10" ID by approx 7" deep--think US style with slightly higher front ridge and slightly wider flare, plus genuine actual, non-faux leather webbing and neck strap inside.
