Actually it means polyvinyl chloride, but PVC tape is the choice when you need a non-corrosive pipe wrap or something similar. Peels clean, conforms to awkward shapes, is water resistant and flame retardant. Also stretchy. Our each is (150) feet of 3/4” wide red PVC tape on a 1-1/2” core.
For traveling surgeons? Veterinarians? Dunno, but this is a small, retractable utility knife with a pointed, #11 scalpel blade inside. Measures 4-1/4" long with a plastic handle when retracted. Looks to us to be great for crafting, hobbying and pretty much any fine cutting. Made in England, and they ain’t talking.
These clear plastic (PET) jars are small peanut-butter jar sized. Measure 3-5/8” tall x approx 3” dia with straight sides, and hold about 10 oz. which is roughly the same size as an 8-year old's marble collection, double the amount of coins in your car's cup holder and the ideal space to hold 17 fireflies before releasing them back into the night. Come with a gasketed red plastic screw cap.
Or smooth it out. Whatever extraneous stuff you need to remove, we’re here to help with our assorted alloy-steel rasps and burrs. In packs of (10) with 1/8” shanks for your rotary tools. You pick: (10) conical, cylindrical and ball-shaped wood rasps, 1-5/8” long: or (10) 1-3/8” long steel burrs in a variety of rounded, pointed or straight shapes.
Then better check your bore. This tiny bore light, made for looking into barrels or other tight spots, measures 3-1/4" long x approx 5/8” dia with a single white LED. Includes a slide on right-angle fiber-optic head and a pocket clip. Take off the head and it’s a nice mini flashlight. You add (1) “AAA” battery.
You’ll get a vague approximation of a genie bottle approx 2” wide at the base and 3” tall full of touchable bubble solution, with a cap that also happens to be the handle of a bubble wand. You’ll also get a bilingual lenticular card (one of those where stuff appears to move) with a little story that’s included for mysterious reasons, but the bubbles are worth the price alone.
This big drawstring bag is in digital camo polyester and measures 24” x 36”. Looks like a laundry bag to us, but you could put whatever you want in it because this is America, which is why it says US in big black letters on the side. (Could also be to distinguish you and yours from THEM, but we doubt it.)
And treat the tomatoes tenderly. Our each is a pack of (20) spring-loaded plant clips, made to hold delicate plant shafts to support stakes without damaging the delicate parts. You’ll get (10) at 1-1/4” OD opening to 5/8”, and (10) at 1-3/4” opening to 1-1/8”. Recommended by raspberry bushes everywhere.
If these were full-size, car guys would put them on restored ’57 Bel Airs and low riders. These 6” dia solid rubber wheels are gray with (5) treads on 1-7/8” wide tires. Mounted on a 4” dia aluminum rim with dual 9/16” ID bearings with a loose bushing between them. One side has a nearly 1-3/4” dia hub that protrudes approx 3/16”; the other bearing is recessed by 3/8”.
