GIFTS FOR DAD

Shine A Brighter Light

Turn your garage into Rick’s Cafe in Casablanca with this easy-to-install adjustable three-arm ceiling/task light that shines a stunning 6,000 lumens into garages, workshops, closets and storerooms. A total of (144) cool-white SMD LEDs—(48) in each of the arms—swivel 90 degrees to illuminate corners, crannies and projects. Screws into standard light sockets and requires no tools or wiring. Measures 11” x 3-3/4”, has an estimated 50,000-hour lifetime. ETL Certified. Better hurry—the AS&S staff are throwing away their regular light bulbs and buying these up like lobster tacos. As a bonus, it looks like a ceiling fan in a place like Rick’s Cafe Americain. If we can’t have Paris, at least we’ll always have surplus.

We sold out twice but the lights are now back in stock! Get yours today.

Green Laser Pointer Par Excellence!

Da Mare could use this to point out cracks in the infrastructure at Wrigley Field. You, having a forgiving nature, will resist the urge to point out cracks in da mayor's infrastructure. You will, of course, use it to point out chimney cracks to the tuck-pointer, a cracked limb to the tree-trimmer, and the crack in your profit picture during a slide presentation. You can do all that and much, much more with the bright light from this 5mW green laser pointer. It's an unbelievable tool. If you need a laser pointer that seems to go on forever and is so strong that you can actually see the beam in the dark, it will be the best low-cost investment you ever made. Or the coolest high-end toy. The 532nm Class IIIa light is 5-5/8" long x 1/2" dia, with (2) "AAA" batteries (not included), a momentary-on switch, pocket clip. (Sorry case not included). An absolute necessity for construction, surveying, warehousing, inspection and other large sites. And for playing in the dark.
