You’re bound to be able to read through one of the lenses on this triple-lens hand-held magnifier. You pick. There’s a large, 5-1/4” acrylic lens at 1.5X with a 1” dia bifocal on the left at approx 2X and a doublet in the handle at approx 7X. (Ignore the surplus-inducing mis-marked lens powers; we tested ’em and the powers listed here are accurate.) Has (3) white LEDs under the main lens for your viewing pleasure and measures 10-3/4” long . The other is the same thing in a slightly smaller size, 8-3/4” long overall with a 3-3/8” x 1.5X main lens with a 1” dia bifocal on the left at approx 3X and a doublet in the handle at approx 7X. You add (3) “AAA” batteries for the LEDs.
These French military field suspenders are olive drab canvas and are marked “PARIS 1978” inside the yoke. (And the yokes on you.) In an H-shape, they have 1-7/8” wide x 10-3/4” long straps on the front, narrowing to 3/4” wide adjustable straps for another 6-1/2” with clips on the end. The back has a pair of 7/8” wide x 27” long straps with hook-and-loop fabric on the back to close on itself. Front straps have a D-ring each for French grenades that we don’t carry.
The uses are endless, endless we tell you, for these little 3-3/4" x 4" x 3/4" hunks of dark-gray/black open call foam. They have a peel-off self-adhesive back so you can use them to pad pretty much anything, or make custom cases for electronics and tools. Or buy a really big bunch and make your room soundproof so you can listen to your Rush albums in peace for a change.
The Smithsonian knows dinosaurs, and now we’ve got dinosaur puzzles from them. Our 100-piece, 8” x 10” puzzles feature various images of the prehistoric beasts, including a dilophosaurus, stegosaurus, rebbachisaurus, mamenchisaurus and diabloceratops, or multiple dinos. We’ll pick (1) for you, because all dinosaurs are awesome. For ages 6+.
Handy little clip-on LED outdoor fixture with (3) white LEDs is powered by a solar cell and NiCd battery on top. Turns itself on at dusk, off at dawn. Housing measures 4-3/4” dia x 2-3/8” tall and attaches to a 1” wide padded spring clamp for mounting. Clamp is also drilled on both arms for more permanent mounting.
Tuck this small roll of black duct tape in your glove box and drive away secure in the knowledge that you’ve got what it takes to repair a leaky hose under the hood at midnight in the rain. Measures 1-7/16” wide on a 1-1/2” core, and you’ll get (15) feet of tape, enough to fix a hose and stick a broken mirror back on the door. Dead-center in the you-don’t-know-you-need-it-until-you-need-it category.
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.
Jewelers and crafters sometimes need to punch a tiny hole, and we’re here to help. This 6” long pliers-style punch with rubber-coated handles is for making 2mm holes in soft metals such as gold, silver or copper. Comes with (2) extra punch tips and a 12mm screw to adjust the maximum depth, in case you want to indent instead of punching all the way through.
These elbow pads feature water resistant digital camo cordura nylon sleeves, have thick foam padding on the exterior with plastic shells on the points for added protection and a full length neoprene sleeve on the inside of your arm for comfort and flexibility. Measure 10” long x a nominal 4” ID but are elastic and stretchy enough to slide over the largest forearms around here. Hook-n-loop straps on the ends tighten them. Recommended for skateboarders, dirt-bikers, riot duty, paint-gun fun and shopping those big-box store mega sales. Made in the USA.
