Like your cousin Marvin at Thanksgiving. Also like these very assorted and colorful vinyl stuffed creatures. Called Puffings™ (from Puff Planet™) most have button eyes and most are approx 4” long with a few longer exceptions. All are on short ball chains to hang with your keys. If we were the sort of people who called things “wacky” we’d say that, but we’re not.
Remember those old school vibration football games, or those fantastic days-of-yore vibrating beds in roadside motels? This is like that, a small vibration motor (10mm dia x 2.5mm) that’s touch-sensitive and produces a pleasant buzzy response. Motor has 1-1/4" power leads, draws approx 60mA at 3VDC. Has 0.75g vibe amplitude. Self-adhesive pad on one face. No shaft.
Creativity meets kinetic art in this “YouTopia” kit. Assemble the pieces; cut out, carve and decorate the moving parts however you want; and you’ve got a moving diorama that’s limited only by your brain. Includes (16) die-cut pieces of thin plywood, (8) dowels and links, (3) O-rings, card stock and some glue. Finished model will be approx 10” tall on a 9-1/2” square base and is a STEAM kit. We also love it as the world’s best DIY birthday card kit. Note: Pond diorama shown is an example of what you can create and is not included.
For your riding comfort, this 9-5/8" dia x 3" wide pneumatic tire has a plastic hub, rubber treads and a 25psi inner tube. Has a 1/2” ID with a 1-1/4” dia x 15/16” axle hub on the inside face and a standard Schrader air valve on the outer. Great for DIY large wagons, or to replace those little hand truck tires.
A CPA for cooking your books? No, just a basic calculator made out of floppy black rubber so you can bend it, shape it, any way you want it. Stick it in your pocket , it's all right. Measures 6” x 3-3/4” with a button-cell battery and a back-up solar cell. Answers in a 2-1/8” long LCD. Made in Germany, where they know their numbers.
Called, yes, The WoodChuck, this 4-way woodworker’s tool has a 1/2” chisel tip, a round rasp on one face, a flat rasp on the reverse, and a file along one narrow edge. There’s a steel strike plate at the end of the handle so it shouldn’t break, bend or splinter. Measures 9-3/4” long. Handy for your neighborhood chain-saw artist, for wood or ice both.
Wallace’s pooches before Gromit came along? Nope, just a handy 2-3/8" long x 3/8” ID steel snap hook attached to a 13/16” ID ring that swivels 360 degrees. In some fashion circles, hanging your keys from a belt loop of your jeans with one of these is considered mandatory.
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.
