The manufacturer calls them pencil boxes, but who carries that many pencils? These are just snazzy 8-3/8” x 5-1/4” x 2-1/2” plastic hard-sided boxes with hinged lids, reinforced metal corners and edges, and keyed clasps (you get two keys). Good for jewelry, diaries and special stuff in general. We’ll pick from assorted types including the pink leopard print, clear, blue swirly, or hipster smoked black. But special requests don’t upset us.
Return with us now to the days of yesteryear, when you addressed mailing labels without using a computer and printer with a wireless connection. These labels are white with red and blue highlights, measure 2-1/2" x 4-1/2" and say “Parcel Post/contents merchandise--return requested.” Fill ’em out, peel off the back and stick ’em on the package. You’ll get (25) to a package, and we’ll send you (3) packs.
These translucent silicone O-rings are 3/32" thick and measure 4" dia. Nice belts for science-project motors and even nicer for our slingshot needs. Crafters will see jewelry material that the metal-detectors won't care about.
If so, you don’t have to bend paper clips to hang stuff from them. You could just buy a bunch of these 2" white plastic ring thingies that twist onto the 1” tracks that hold most ceiling tiles. A 1-3/8” dia tab with a 7/8” dia hole sits perpendicular to the ceiling, ready for whatever you want to suspend from it.
This 11-piece rubber stamp set specializes in geekish and nerdial images and sayings (Geek Chic, Game Over, atomic symbol, etc.) at 1” square plus the smaller #, @ and USB symbol. All of them mount on the included 3-3/4” long clear acrylic block.
Nothing says “you dig?” like these Earth Science Kits from GeoCentral®. You pick the Fossil Kit, with (9) leftover oldies but goodies, including a sea urchin, white clam, gastropod, crinoid stem, brachiopod, ammonite, sand dollar, shark tooth and branching coral, all approx 3/4”; or the Crystal Kit, with a star mica, ocos, clear quartz, amethyst and amethyst cluster, citrine, gypsum, pyrite and kyanite, all between 1/2” and 1”, plus (3) pieces of dolomite to grow your own crystals. Both include a small magnifier and instruction booklet.
This crimping tool from Gardner Bender® works when making your own data or phone cables. Suitable for use with RJ-11 and -45 plugs. You’ll get (10) and (5) of these, respectively. Tool is 7" long and includes a wire stripper and cutter. Package has wiring diagrams on the back, so don’t toss it.
This little light of ours has three functions and still fits in your pocket. Just 5” long in a black aluminum housing, it has a red laser, a 5-LED UV light and a bright white 10-LED standard flashlight. You add a trio of “AAA” batteries, thoughtfully linked below, and Bob’s your uncle, or at least your brother-in-law.
Or garage, or hallway--anywhere that’s wireless in the bad sense. CJ calls this “another retina scorcher” from iZoom® because of the brightness of the COB lights. Fixture measures 3" x 4" x 13/16" in white plastic with a big rocker switch that activates the 1” white COB LED in its center. Powered by (4) “AAA”s, included. Mounts via self-adhesive hook-and-loop pads or the pair of little disc magnets on the back.
