Put your silverware on your belt. This 4-1/4" camping implement separates into a fold-out fork and spoon, and the spoon has a fold-out knife at the other end so you can use it with the fork to cut your pork chops. Also includes a corkscrew (we recommend a nice Grenache or Tempranillo with pork chops), a can/bottle opener and the ubiquitous awl. In brushed steel with a black canvas belt pouch that you should put the thing into fork-down or the tines might catch on the fabric and make you crazy.
From Stanley®, these turnbuckles have hexagonal aluminum bodies with stainless steel eyes. You pick: the shorter 3/16” x 5-1/2” long one with a 3/8” body, 9/32” ID eyes and a 65-lb safe working load; or the longer 1/4” x 7-1/2” long one with a 7/16” body, 3/8” ID eyes and a 110-lb safe working load.
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.
Not to be confused with Flower Power (or Flour Power, the failed Patisserie Party movement), this floor-mount power supply, likely from a lighting fixture. 115VAC supply is rated 2.5A at 12VDC. Has a 6-foot, 18-3AWG grounded power cord and a 6-foot output lead terminating at tinned wire ends. A great unit!
Nice mahogany-stained thingy, too, with faux pleatherette sides and a drawer. Measures 7" x 4-3/4" x 4-1/8" with a 6-1/4” wide x 4” deep (with an open front) shelf on top and a slot for a wire in the back. We think it was made as a phone charger caddy. (It’s just wide enough for an iPhone 6 Plus without a case, and would probably take a wireless charger.) Also has a 5-1/4" x 3-9/16" x 1-7/8" drawer, clearly made to hold stuff.
This nostalgia-prompting, zinc-plated aluminum single sheave pulley is made (and so marked) for a clothesline, which is what people dried clothes on before there were driers. If you had two of these, you could run a clothesline to the kitchen window of the tenement across the street and have something to tell your grandkids about. Measures 3-1/2" dia x 1/2" ID on a 3/4" wide x 2-1/2" bracket and comes with a 4" long x 7/8" ID J-hook for mounting outside the kitchen window.
Do these pants make your apple look fat? Plop your fruits, veggies, meats, pastas, candies, crackers, eggs, salad dressings, wine, beer and whatever else on the Nutra Track™ Mini Nutrition Digital Scale. It’ll tell you how many calories (also: salt, protein, fat, carbs, cholesterol and fiber) you’re about to injest--or it’ll just weigh the stuff, which doesn’t have to be food. Has (160) common food codes printed under its tempered glass top, and you can program more, for a total of (999). But it’s also just a great digital scale that weighs anything up to 5kg/11lbs in 1g/.1-oz increments. Compact, at 10” x 6” with a 4-3/8” LCD, and comes with a 24-page booklet plus (3) AAA batteries. From Mackie Scientific.
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.
Build your own. This cute-as-a-bug robotic beetle kit features an infrared remote controller that will switch between (4) frequencies so you can buy multiple units and have beetle wars. Beetle has (2) motors to control pincers in two axes, and (2) more for lateral and longitudinal movement of the (6) wheels. Finished critter will be approx 12-1/2" x 7-1/2" x 3-1/4". No soldering needed but you’ll need simple hand tools and (8) “AA” batteries. For ages 14+.
