Woodworkers, potters and crafters will all find a plethora, possibly a plethora-and-a-half, of uses for this set of (6) needle files, all 6" long. Includes round, half-round, square, flat, triangular and equaling files.
We think these clear, heavy vinyl zip-top pouches were made to hold make-up, with slots for applicators, lip-sticks, etc., but they’re mighty handy for a plethora-and-a-half of sundry storage and travel needs. You pick the small pouches, 5-1/2" x 4-7/8" tall with (3) 1-3/8” x 2-1/8” tall inner sleeves along the bottom; or the large at 7-3/4" x 5" with (5) 1-1/2” wide x 2” deep inner sleeves plus another teeny one 2” long x 3/8” at a right angle. The sleeves are only on one side, so the whole expanding pouch is also available for storage.
Imagine the issue of a marriage between a party light and weed whacker. The handle is shaped like an 8” long squid with a spinning diamond head that flashes red, blue, green and yellow while (4) 5” long strands light up while they spin around and morph through different patterns (at 32 rpm, as if that mattered). Three “AAA” batteries included so you can show the mail carrier how it works as soon as you get it. Bonus: set it down and it sort of spin-walks around a tabletop.
Which will be much easier when you have Yoda crashing through your bedroom wall to light up the night. Our authentic Grand Jedi Master head is 12-3/8" ear-to-ear x 8-1/4” x 4-1/2” with internal LEDs that make his whole head glow with knowledge. Has on/off/30-minute timer and a remote. Remote includes a battery, but you add (3) “AA”s for the head. Includes mounting hardware and a wall decal to simulate his having crashed through the plaster, which is a little un-Yoda-ish, but he is a Jedi knight, after all.
These 1/2 oz. clear plastic vials measure 2-3/4” long x 5/8” nearly square. The black plastic screw caps have a 2-3/8” applicator on them with fuzzy ends. We believe they were made for lip gloss, but would be dandy for essential oils or touch-up paints, as little oil/lubricant holders, or for anything else where a little dab will do. Or snip off the applicators and they’re just nice little bottles.
This crimping tool from Gardner Bender® works when making your own data or phone cables. Suitable for use with RJ-11 and -45 plugs. You’ll get (10) and (5) of these, respectively. Tool is 7" long and includes a wire stripper and cutter. Package has wiring diagrams on the back, so don’t toss it.
Stop squinting. This oversized folding loupe measures 3-1/4” x 2” x 1/2” thick in a boteh shape. (Oh, alright, a boteh is the name for that teardrop-ish thing in paisley patterns--it’s Persian for leaf or bush or something.) Lens is 1-3/4" dia acrylic 2X with a very bright white LED powered by included button-cell batteries. On a short chain and slip-ring.
The ball casters are great swivelers and quite snazzy looking, too. Seen on your better chairs everywhere. These are brass plated on 1-1/2" square mounting plates with 3/16" holes at the corners. You pick the 2" or 2-1/2" dia versions.
These 3” long cricket-shaped clips are made to slide onto your car visor and open up to hold your glasses without scratching the plastic lenses they told you were scratch-proof but really aren’t. Inside has foam pads so they won’t even scratch your temples. We’ll pick a pair in black, red, blue or fuchsia. Could also hold a pencil if you don’t have sunglasses. Made for a large chain store and sold for $5.99 each, but we’ve got ’em for a fraction of that. Surplus!
