Our current favorite gas mask, direct from the Polish military. Full head and face style in a light gray rubber with round eye and nose apertures, plus a 20” long x 1-1/2” dia corrugated rubber hose from the bottom. Put them all together and they spell perfect alien costume. The other end of the hose attaches to a 7-1/8" x 5-1/4" x 2-1/2” dark olive drab filter canister with a sealed element. The whole shebang (shebang is szulernia in Polish, and you’re welcome) fits into an 8-3/4" x 10" x 3-1/4" olive canvas storage pouch with an adjustable 43" strap.
A whole new look in twofers. This clear acrylic clipboard is also a giant, approx 2x Fresnel lens. Measures 12-1/2” x 8-7/8” x 1/8” thick with the magnifying area covering most of the board. Standard 4-1/2” spring clip at the top, plus a 1/4” hole to hang it on a nail.
Someday you may want to send a really, really long message from the desert island you’re stranded on. You’ll need this little (1-5/8" x 1-1/8") clear glass bottle with a 4GB USB 2.0 flash drive embedded in its cork. The cork can also be reused to smuggle government secrets inside the neck of a wine bottle.
Nifty little display motor has (3) gears operating a 7-5/8” long pivoting plastic arm that swings to and fro a tad faster than twice a second. Mounted in a 4-3/4” x 3-5/8” x 1-7/8” white plastic box. All you add is a (1) D-cell battery, and something to wave.
What stuff? How would we know--it’s your stuff. These were, however, made for photos and sold by Michael’s, but we’ve got ’em now and we say you can stuff anything in them. Translucent plastic boxes measure 6-1/4" x 4-1/8" x 7/8" deep with latching lids.
This little 1-3/8" x 3/4" PC board is wired with (8) surface mounted diodes and attendant components. Draws approx 5mA at 12VDC. Has a pair of solder pads for power, with the left one (or top one, depending on how you’re holding it) being hot. CJ, our Director of Knowing About This Sort of Thing, suggests “good heat-sinking.”
This 3/8" dia braided orange nylon tow rope is a tad over 13 feet and rated for a max load of 6,613 lbs, which should pretty much make it good for whatever you’re driving, including the weight-class-leading 6,052-lb Rolls Royce Phantom EWB (Extended Wheel Base). Includes diecast 3/4” ID x 2-7/8” snap hooks at each end, with rubber non-slip grips.
We’ve never felt the need to hang Illinois flag curtains on the windows here at the home office, but we understand they do things differently in Texas. Hence, our each is a pair of Texas-flag curtains, each at 36" x 30" with 2” pockets at the top for a curtain rod, plus a 58” x 14” valance, because it ain’t a window treatment without a valance, hoss. If you disagree, the valance would also make a nice scarf to wear while tailgating at Sooner games.
