THAT'S A BIG BALL

Ohaus made giant bow calipers. Use them to measure outside diameters (like balls, boxes, your head, your waist), inside diameters (like cylinders and boxes). They are 15" long when folded and even have a graduated side in MM to measure depth. A very cool teaching tool. Includes a teaching aid instruction sheet. Max outside diameter is 25" (635Cm)

Our compact 4” dia globes have smooth dual axes rotation and measure 5" wide x 6" high overall, including the nice black stand they’re attached to. All show their features in excellent detail. You pick: the Moon globe, showing craters, seas, rilles, valleys, mountain ranges and landing sites of manned and unmanned missions; the Celestial globe with stars, constellations and celestial images by noted German cartographer Karl Harig; the Political globe with an easy-to-read map indicating political borders and capital cities; the Antique-Style Political globe, which is like the Political globe, but old-time looking; or the Satellite globe, which shows the landmasses and oceans of earth as they appear from satellites. A few different globes next to each other make for a really great display, but they’re all nice enough to stand alone.

Tired Of Iron Filings?

Same here. Try the Ferrofluid Magnetic Display, a little sealed bottle with virtually fluid nano-particles of ferrous metal suspended in liquid. You’ll get (4) powerful 1/2” dia x 3/16” neodymium disc magnets, (2) of them attached to chess-pawnish holders. Move the magnets in assorted combinations around the bottle for fascinating effects. Sort of the marriage of science with desk toys, but students can’t spill these particles all over the place.

They were the toast of the 19th Century, and remained the hottest thing around, electrostatically speaking, until Bobby Van de Graaf came along. This one works like a top, zapping sparks to a fare-thee-well with very little cranking. It's mighty pretty too, in acrylic, white and silver, and will dress up a dull physics or electronics lab.

You can start with our single aluminum tuning fork, 2-tined and 7-1/2" long. It vibrates at 256 hz, and is labeled "C". Or you can order the set that has (8) forks and a mallet with a rubber-tipped plastic head. The forks are labeled low-C to high-C and come in a fitted, latched wooden box. Unfortunately, C.J., who has perfect pitch, tells us that his pitch is more perfect than most of the tuning forks. He also says you can file the tips, tuning them to an electronic keyboard until they're perfect - and we think there's a certain cachet to telling people you tuned the forks yourself. But they are perfect, if you're using them for things like teaching principles of sound or driving the chihuahua crazy.
