Our each is a package of (2) steel tech rulers. One is 6” x 1/32” for the first 2-1/2” then 1/64” for the next 1/2” then 1/16” for the last 3”. The other is 150mm x 0.5mm. Both have sliding markers/pocket clips, and both have mm:inch tables on the reverse side. You’ll need excellent eyesight.
It’s a cornucopia of stencils. All shapes, no alphabets. You’ll get a profusion of (8) clear acrylic stencil sheets, including: a raft of ovals; a preponderance of squares; a farrago of circles, hexagons, pentagons and triangles; a collection of a bunch of shapes, including trapezoids; a roomful of interior design shapes; a melange of electronic symbols; and an assortment we can’t altogether identify, but might be for printed circuit design. All have mm rules along at least one edge.
Can't beat a classic. These uncoated ceramic donut magnets have a 1-lb pull, which makes them dandy for classroom or refrigerator use. They measure 1-1/4" dia x 3/8" ID x 3/16" thick and are polarized on the faces. You get a wrapped roll of 29 donuts.
Our each is a stack of (10) nickel-plated neodymium magnets. They measure 5/16” dia x 1/8” thick and have about 2 lbs of pull. We like them for light cabinet door latches or hanging your macaroni craft project very securely.
From Helix®, this 18" long aluminum U.S. Standard triangular architects' ruler/scale has color-coded facings and is divided into 3. 1-1/2, 1, 3/4, 3/8, 3/16, 3/32, 1/2, 1/4 and 1/8 inch per foot. Yes, you can use it even if you're not an architect.
Pick up this 1-3/4" x 7/8" x 3/8" ceramic pick-up magnet while we still have it. It's in a heavy metal housing and has a stationary metal hoop, about 1/2" i.d., on top. The manufacturer tells us the magnet will grab up to 5 lbs of metal, however Pat and Magnet Testing Team #3 have repeatedly lifted 10+ lbs, so it's very strong. Especially if you're going to dangle it on the end of a cord to gather spilled nails or to fish your keys out of the lake/pond/sewer/drain!
Donut magnet you can take to town!! 74mm dia x 14mm thick with a 30mm hole. Very strong and well pedigreed - in fact, its kin are activating pacemakers. They are of a high permeability ferrite material with a lovely light blue or white epoxy coating. Okay, we have them because there is the odd bubble, slight scratches or the word MAGNET painted in the coating which ruled them out of the medical ball, but they're fine company nonetheless. Good display bases, paper clip traps, the ultimate fridge magnet and super for classroom demos.
You can’t beat the original, genuine, authentic, standard, classic, fine-point Sharpie® permanent black marker with the pocket-clip cap. Just can’t. Accept no substitutes, unless we say it’s OK. Our each is a pack of two!
You get (8) fine point Sharpie® markers: black, blue, green, red, yellow, orange, purple and brown. Great for posters, labels and just general notes around the house. No charge for the pocket clips on the caps.
And this one will grab back. Our each is a pack of (6) shiny nickel-plated neodymium magnets that each measure 1/2” dia x 1/8” thick, and have a 2-lb pull.
Nice rare-earth neodymium disk magnet, 1" dia, about the same as a quarter but over twice as thick at 4mm. Rare-earth magnets are permanent and powerful, and this one has approx 7 lbs pull, and always will. Comes with a galvanized metal keeper approx 2" dia so you don't lose it.
Just like buying salami, except you can't take notes with lunch meat, and these pens cost less than sausage. We bought them in bulk, and we're selling them in bulk. Our PKG will get you (2) lbs of assorted, but very nice, ballpoint pens with a gallimaufry of logos and names. For future reference, pens weigh in at approx (50) per pound, give or take.
Rare earth magnets are usually killers for their size, and these thick nickel neodymium discs are no exception. The price, on the other hand, for (3) 7/16" dia x 1/4" 5-lb lift or (2) 15/32” dia x 3/16” 8-lb lift magnets each stored on a 2" dia steel disc, is a rare exception.
Our each is an 8-pack of ultra-fine-point precision permanent markers from Sharpie® in black, blue, green, yellow, orange, red, purple and brown. Measure 5-3/8" long with pocket clips.
If the question is whether to tie a bunch of these giant latex professional weather balloons to a lawn chair, the answer is no. (They burst at about 82,000 feet anyway.) Besides, this is a true weather balloon, with plenty of fun, nonfatal uses. The cream-colored latex balloon is approx 40" dia when flaccid, you should pardon the expression, but has an 8-foot dia when inflated. The neck is 9" long x 1" dia. Scientists, meteorologists, inventors, teachers and the imaginative filmmaker are warned to launch the balloon carefully. The material is delicate and not made to survive brushes with pavement, pine branches, or clumsy physics students.
Lego® goes crazy with this 100+ piece kit with everything you need to build (16) different contraptions (be pretty stupid if they made 16 of the same contraption) for your amusement. In the mix are gears, pulleys, belts and axles, which you could turn into a rocket racer, Lego® launcher, donkey cart or scissor grabber, among other things. Includes a 50-page spiral-bound graphically illustrated instruction booklet. And, yes, adding Lego® pieces of your own just ramps up the fun.
They might as well learn something while they're trying to outlast you on eating those lima beans. Set the table with educational placemats and they'll be at least a touch smarter after dinner, even if their vegetable intake is low. These laminated, 12" x 17-3/8" mats have full-color fronts, black-and-white backs. Choose the United States Map, Stars & Constellations, the Periodic Table of Elements or The Metric System.
This plated N52 14,200 gauss neodymium magnet is shaped like a miniature silver ingot, measuring 1-1/2" long x 1/2" wide x 1/8" thick. Has a big hangonability quotient, which the manufacturer claims is 15 lbs of pull, meaning it's probably closer to 13 lbs. Impressive either way for such a cute little magnet.
Nice little teaching magnet set for the primary grade classroom has (6) magnets in star, two-bar, horseshoe and ring shapes, all plastic coated in silver and red to mark the poles. Range in size from 1” to 3”, and include a few paper clips and small nails for demo purposes.
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.)
Okay, it isn't the cheapest magnet in the warehouse - but we pulled about 35-40 pounds with this 4-7/8" x 1" x 3/4" ceramic magnet, and we think it's a bargain. It has a 6" bracket with mounting holes on 5-1/2" centers, plus a 1/2" ID eyehook bolted into the center of it. It's all set to troll the bottom of the lake next time your filing cabinet falls overboard.
Once upon a time, a copywriter put this little magnet next to his computer monitor and got really pretty, wavy, aurora-like effects. And then got a new monitor! Don't try this at home. Our shiny, silver-colored 1" x 1" x 1/2" neodymium magnet looks innocent, but is industrial strength, pulling something like 25 lbs with enough strength left over to erase all your credit cards. And wreak havoc with your monitor.
Very popular with elementary school teachers, these hardcover blank books let students create their own storybooks. (Middle-schoolers interviewing and making books for primary grade kids is a popular and civilizing project.) Also great for sketching, journaling or scrapbooking. Pure white blank covers with (14) sheets (28 pages) of 80-lb blank paper inside with a sewn-in binding. You pick the 6” x 8” books or the 8-1/2” x 11” versions.
Add a door/drawer pull to any ferrous surface with this 1" dia x 1/4" thick neodymium disc in a polished sleeve with a 3/16" dia hole in a stand-off. Comes with a 1" slip-ring attached, and hangs on for 22 lbs worth. Plenty handy for hanging stuff from other stuff, too.
Voted most likely to attract by the judges, this magnet has the relative strength of 10 men. A shiny silver 1/2" cube of neodymium magnetism, it packs approx a 15-lb pull. If our boss Pat were that strong he could lift 2,160 lbs! Besides its superpower strength, this beautiful cube also would improve the looks of your fridge or bulletin board to no end.
The 5/32” bore in the center of this small plated neodymium magnet just makes it easier to mount. Measures 3/4" dia x 1/4" thick with a pull of approx 7 lbs. Works great with #6 or #8 flat head screws.
Very appealing plated N52 neodymium disc magnets are 3/4” dia, which is a bug-hair smaller than a dime, and 1/8” thick. They have an impressive 7-lb pull, while an actual dime won’t hardly buy you anything these days.
Classroom and Science Fair alert: Now you can order an 8-pack of metals and metal alloys for demonstration purposes. Each pack of 1" dia x 1/32" thick discs includes aluminum, bronze, brass, copper, n/silver (w/nickel), m/steel (mild: low carbon), stainless steel, and zinc. Composition of each is stamped on one side of the discs.
Yes, this grade C8 ceramic magnet is beastly--a monster, measuring 6" X 4" X 1" thick with a conservatively rated pull of 35 lbs, 3850 gauss. Powerful and, like all ceramic magnets, brittle, so keep it away from your laptop and don’t drop it or you may have several little beastly magnets. Use it to hold tools in the shop, or knives in the kitchen--or paint a bull’s eye on it and toss paper clips at it.
Sounds like a Portuguese percussion album, but it’s just an alnico bar magnet in a mount that lets it rotate freely to demonstrate the three-dimensional magnetic field. Ideal for experiments about forces between magnetic poles, fields around wire and coils, and the properties of fields produced by electric currents. Also handy as part of your ghost-hunting gear.
Water color made easy. You get a pack of a dozen water-color pencils in light and dark blue, green, black, brown, yellow, peach, orange, red, pink and purple, plus a small paint brush. Draw with the pencils, then dip the brush in water and blend the colors. For the artist in all of us.
A 3-pack of notebooks for introverts. These 48-page lined notebooks measure 5-1/2" x 3-1/2" and have grocery store-paper-bag-color cardboard covers, pretty much what you find in your Moleskinny notebooks, but at less than 1/4 the price. Plus no strangers will talk to you on the bus because these are labeled "private thoughts," "don't talk to me," and "people to avoid" on the covers. They've got a pic of a tiny person reading at the bottom of the pages, but so what? From our friends at Archie McPhee.
Gray is for grown-ups. This duct tape is made for the young at heart. You’ll get (30) feet of 1-7/8” wide duct tape on a 3” core. You pick: aqua, chain-link fence/skyline, red, yellow, pink cupcake, translucent white or olive drab.
But wooden gearheads only. Making Wooden Gear Clocks is a 64-page book complete with full-size patterns for making (6) operating mechanical clocks plus a gear-machine kinetic sculpture. From Woodworking & Crafts magazine, this is for fairly advanced woodworkers, and calls for having most standard tools plus a drill press, scroll saw, router and in some cases a lathe. The resulting clocks are both intricate and stunning.
Our tactical twofer is a 6” long x 1/2” dia. aluminum body ball-point pen with black ink, with an automobile window breaker at the other end. In gun-metal gray, as befits things tactical, with a pocket clip on the flat-top cap. Escape from your car, then write us a thank you note.
Our magnetic sheets aren't large enough to make a magnetic bed, but they're just right for making a bulletin board, hanging on to a rounded surface, or clinging to a car door with their glossy magnetic side while their self-adhesive side holds your removable sign. They're a flexible, very dark brown rubber-like material, easily cut with scissors. These large sheets, a 2-ft piece is cut from the 2-ft wide material, and you pick a light (.011" thick) non-adhesive, a medium (.018") self-adhesive, or a slightly thicker (.021") self-adhesive sheet. Our PKG(2) is a 2 Foot x 2 Foot sheet.
