Sort of like kleenex, because cellophane used to be trademarked but isn’t any longer so you can now say cellophane all you like. Cellophane, cellophane, cellophane. You’ll get (48) sheets of 12” square cellophane, a dozen each in red, yellow, green and blue, for teaching kids color mixing. But feel free to use them for anything. Includes instructions for making your own color paddle.
This little Philips fan is a takeout from a Remstar Pro M series CPAP machine (that’s Continuous Positive Airway Pressure) for sleep apnea prevention. Blower has a 3-phase brushless DC motor that draws 150mA at 12VDC on one of the coils. You’ll need a controller, and the output will depend on that. Unit is completely encased and measures 3” dia x 2” thick with an 11/16” inlet and a 13/16” outlet.
Work like a watchmaker with this extremely steampunkish clip-on triple loupe. In brass-plated steel, it clips on the temple of a pair of glasses with the three 15/16” dia lenses (2X, 2.5X and 3X) on 1-1/2” long arms that swing in and out and are adjustable via set screws. The spring clip for the glasses opens to 5/16”. Working distance is short like all loupes, but you’ll look extremely cool.
That’s where these military overseas caps started out, on Deutsch köpfe. Slightly shorter than the U.S. garrison cap, and with a jaunty curve, front to back, they’re in dark blue-gray with orange piping and a German army insignia on the front. We’ll pick a pair in (2) different sizes 58-63, which is approx 7-1/4 to 7-7/8 on American heads, but the envelope design gives them some size leeway.
A long time ago in an office supply store, far away, kids would have loved to have these little stationery sets. Now you can get a set with (4) small markers (red, green, blue and yellow), a tiny Boba Fett eraser, sheet of (15) bitsy stickers, and a 30-page 3-7/8”x 2-1/2” notepad, all carefully fitted inside an R2-D2 plastic case or a Darth Vader head. We’ll pick, because it’s our galaxy.
You need a dehumidistat to sense the relative humidity and turn on a fan or whatever dehumidifies you. This one is from Broan-NuTone and is rated for up to a 10A load at 120VAC and 5A at 240VAC but can be used with a low-voltage (24V or less) fan. Use the clearly marked, easy-to-use dial to set your humidity anywhere from 20 to 80 percent, with full on and off settings as well. Housing measures 4-1/2” x 2-3/4” x 1-1/2” with keyed 5/32” mounting holes. Comes with mounting hardware, Lo-V terminals and wiring instructions. Made in Canada by humid Canadians. Broan #DH100W.
You almost certainly have an unmet need for 9-3/4” long x 15/16” OD black closed cell foam with a 1/4” bore in the middle. Big fat soda straws? No? How about handles for all your homemade tools? Slit them and make car-door guards? Pad your own coat hangers? Slice ’em up for washers or custom furniture pads? Probably best just to buy a bunch and figure it out later.
Coding for Beginners…using Scratch is a 96-page, hardback, spiral-bound book for teaching kids with basic computer skills how to write code using Scratch, an educational programming language developed by MIT. (Has over 12 million registered users and 15 million shared projects.) Book includes art and sonic projects plus (4) games.
Bad prom dress combo, but just the thing to let people see you coming at night on your bike. This arm band has a reflective chartreuse plastic housing with (4) red LEDs that can be set to flash or stay steady-on. Band is 1” wide x 20-1/2” long, but 5” is elastic so it could move from your arm to your leg or head if you’re so inclined. Comes with a coin-cell battery that you can remove gently with needle-nose pliers for replacement.
