We don’t know what it means either, but it’s written on this package of excellent wood-handled nylon-bristle artists’ brushes. You’ll get (6) in graduated sizes from approx 1” down to approx 1/4”. Lengths range from 9” to approx 8-1/2”. Made in Japan by Yinghua.
Like baseball cards, except with dinosaurs. And no gum. (You wouldn’t want surplus gum anyway.) Measure 3-1/2” x 2-1/2”, assorted and laminated, so they’ll last longer between bicycle spokes. You’ll get (4) packs, (8) cards to a pack. You can try to collect them all but we have no idea how many there are. We’re going to say lots, just like the dinosaurs themselves.
We’re music-loving folk here at the surplus capital of America, so we like this high-quality, triangular, olive drab nylon case, originally intended to be a gun case, for toting your ukulele from luau to tiki bar. Padded, measures 22” long x 10” wide at the big end, narrowing to approx 4” at the bottom. Zipper on (3) sides, shoulder strap, outside 5” x 7-1/2” flapped pocket, and myriad slots on both sides. Also good for a junior fiddle, or some flutes and tin whistles.
Like the ones Johnny Carson wore? No, like the ones the Swiss military uses to handle Nuclear, Biological or Chemical stuff. NBC. These are new, still in the package, olive drab-ish, in a mysterious plastic-like material, 18-3/8” long x 7-1/2” wide, and are constructed like mittens with index fingers, the better to free up your trigger-finger, we assume. Our each is (3) pairs, complete with rubber loops to secure them to your forearms. When worn, they give you an (uncooked) lobster-like appearance, so costumers take a hint.
There are myriad uses for these colored and unfinished wooden cubes. (Yes, myriad, which is even more than several plethoras.) These cubes are 5/8” on a side and there are (42) of them in each pack, and we’ll send you a pack of colored and a pack of unfinished. Now go think of something clever to make besides a bunch of dice. Although there’s nothing wrong with a bunch of hand-painted dice.
These small clear plastic jars measure 1-13/16” tall x just a smidgen under 2” dia, and hold approx 2 oz each with non-gasketed cafe-au-lait color screw caps. About the size and shape of small paint jars, and our tests indicate that they’re water-tight.
Never gets old, that Lysistrata joke, does it? (Oh, just Google it.) This pocket-sized set of 1/4” hex bits comes with a 1” extension bit and 4mm, 6mm and 7mm slotted bits plus #1, #2, and #3 Phillips bits, all inside a thin flat little flip-out carrier. Bits may have some oxidation spots, which is why they're mighty cheap, too.
The vent window is gone forever, which is why you can’t keep your entire windshield fog-free all the time. (Ask grampa.) So we recommend this low-power auxiliary windshield heater-defroster. Draws a scant 3A and measures 5-3/4" x 3-3/4" x 2" with a visor clip, a 4-foot cord and a little built-in fan. Don’t expect it to remove ice but it does the job in a pinch. Funnest part is proving to the policeman that it’s not an illegal radar detector.
How about a really nice linear actuator 4-lead 5VDC at 570mA stepper motor. We thought so. This one is a robotics dream, and requires 570mA at 5VDC and features a 2-1/2" long 1/4” lead screw with a 3/4” long 3/16” ID U-joint at the end. Bipolar and non-captive. Measures 1-3/8" square x 1-5/16". But wait, there’s more: also has a 5-pin 5VDC 30mA encoder at the end. Everything is connected via a 14” wiring harness. Has (4) 3/32” mounting holes on the face. Whole shebang in made in the US of A. HSI Part# 35F4P-05-006. Encoder# E5S-1000-315-H.
