And you need to know how to stay alive on them. We recommend that you choose one of these books to help with that: the U.S. Army 1976 training circular Military Mountaineering, a 139-page paperback guide to survival and combat on glaciers, mountains and alpine paths; or the Department of the Army Map Reading and Land Navigation, a 113-page field manual originally published in 1993.
From what mind sprang these pencil sharpener/erasers that look exactly like auto wheels and tires, we could only guess, but we won’t because we just work here. You’ll get (2) black eraser tires on grey wheels that conceal pencil sharpeners. The peelings stay in the wheel hubs until you empty them. Measure 2-5/8" dia x 7/8" thick.
These incredibly bright little pocket LED worklights have defunct or misprinted promos on their red barrels and what do you care. Measure 6-1/4" long with a swiveling pocket clip with an embedded magnet inside for easy mounting on metal surfaces. Light is from a row of (7) bright white LEDs at the pocket-clip end. It even includes the (3) required “AAA” batteries.
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.
Ceiling fans often have lights, but they aren’t lights, so don’t try to slow them down with a light dimmer rheostat. Do the right thing and get a fan controller. In a cream/off-white color, these are sized for standard electrical boxes and will need 1-3/8” back clearance. You pick: the dual slide fader for up to a 2.5A fan and a 300W light fixture; or the single slide for fan only, rated for 5A. Both include instructions, wire nuts and mounting screws. UL.
That’s what a “travel tumbler” really is, you know. This one is double-walled white plastic to keep your beverage cold or hot (how it knows which is magic) measuring 5-1/2” tall and holding (8) oz. Has a pretty blue gasketed screw top with a drinking slot. Dishwasher safe. Made in Holland, whence we don’t get much stuff, so we’re excited.
This 7-1/2 foot 16-3AWG gray power cord is hospital grade, which means the connections are sealed in solid (and see-through) acrylic so they won’t spark in oxygen-rich environments. This one has a female IEC (C-6) computer/appliance plug at one end and a standard grounded plug at the other. UL/CSA.
Attention lunch toters. The paper bag is dead, replaced by this 21st century collapsible silicone cutie. Measures 5" x 4-1/4" x 2-1/2" (think salad or leftover shrimp lo mein) with a snap-on lid and a spork, but push on the lid and it squats into a briefcase-backpack or pocket-friendly 1” deep. Dishwasher safe. We’ll pick one that will match your lunch in red, blue or green.
Which means it’s heated to make it harder and more malleable, which makes it craft wire among other things. TMI? OK, we’ll stop. You’ll get (2) spools of (100) feet each in 28 gauge (really thin) black wire. Packages have a built-in cutter.
