Indispensable for Monty Python reenacters, Foley artists, conga bands, South Pacific performances, backyard luaus and a plethora of Polynesian practices. Our each is (10) half-shells.
Why watch the 2017 total eclipse of the sun (or any eclipse or sunset) with cardboard glasses? Your fashion-forward astronomy geeks will be wearing these ISO standard 12312-2 solar-viewing eClipser-HD™ glasses. Vaguely Star-Trekkish, they have scratch resistant polymer lenses that show the sun in a natural orange and block 100% UV and 99.999% of visible light, black plastic frames and come in a protective carrying pouch.
This one will do, particularly if you’re hanging up something substantial, and you need a hook that looks sort of like a question mark. Brass-plated steel, 4-3/4” long with a 1” ID and made from 3/8” stock. The last 2-1/4” have a 3/8-16 thread waiting for a nut you could find in any hardware store.
Direct from the US military (says US right on the flap), this small olive drab cotton pack measures 10" x 9" x 5-1/2" with a 9" flap across the top, 6” side flaps to protect the contents, straps to close it, a clear plastic card holder, a carrying handle, and straps and eye-holes to attach it to a larger pack.
Genuine U.S. military surplus athletic supporter, unused, never issued, brand new, still in the box, we swear on our mother's combat boots. This military supporter does date from approximately the Korean War era, but some things never change. Size medium, with a 3" wide waist-band.
This bright headlamp has a 45-lumen LED (which is bright!), and comes with an elastic strap to put it on your noggin when you’re biking, spelunking, mining coal or fixing that leaky pipe under the sink. Measures 3” x 2-1/2” x 2-1/4” with a pivoting mount. In orange and black plastic, and you add (3) “AAA” batteries.
Our newest superheroes are these titanium tweezers, non-magnetic, rust-proof, stronger than mortal tweezers and with really skinny tips. Our each is a trio, (2) at 4-5/8” long marked “1” and “5”, and (1) at 4-7/8” marked “AA”. All three are perfect for for high-precision work, including under a microscope, but they’re not too proud to pull a splinter out of your finger.
Is worth any number of ordinary utility lights. From iZoom™ comes this threefer utility light with a panel of (27) surface-mounted LEDs, (18) bright white (360 lumens) and (9) red flashers on a 9” long x 1-1/8” dia semi-knurled barrel. On top is a 2-draw pull-out shaft with a 2” long gooseneck with a head that has (3) white LEDs (20 lumens) in it. Head is magnetized to be a pick-up tool; base is a stronger magnet to hold the whole shebang on a steel surface. Includes (4) AG13 and (3) “AA” batteries. We’ll pick a silver, blue or red barrel.
