Neodymium Column

We're liking this little plated N45 neodymium magnet because it will stand on end and stick out very prettily on the ice box. Measures 1" tall x 1/4" square with a hefty, for its size, 3-1/2 lb pull, 13,800 gauss. (Will also lie down on its side, of course, because everybody does.)

Fun With Iron Filings

Put 'em on a sheet of paper (or glass, or plastic, or any number of things), put a magnet underneath, and watch them do what iron filings do when they meet a magnet. Weird fun coupled with basic physics. Our each is 3/8 oz, which is approx 146 gazillion iron filings, and pure hell to clean up unless you have one of our handy-dandy aforementioned magnets!

Fishnets

Not fishnet stockings, but netting for actual fish, direct from the U.S. Army (you'd think Navy, wouldn't you?) in olive drab. It's a survival thing. You get a 10-foot x 5-foot net made of 3/4" squares individually knotted from twisted cotton/nylon, so the net won't unravel if torn. Might have a slightly musty aroma (but definitely not fishy) that a little sunshine time will fix. Great for maritime-theme decoration, bible-camp plays (filled until breaking, walking-on-water background prop…) or, we suppose, fishing. And perfect if you want to go to a costume party as Poseidon.

Hexagonal silicone. Whatever you like to call them. You definitely need a bunch of these translucent white, six-sided silicone discs.

Probably from a gasket factory, but they’d make dandy vibration pads, non-slip feet, Hobbit hot pads, shot-glass coasters, earrings or very odd bouncy floor tiles. We'll pick a handful of assorted sizes for you.
