Mabuchi Motor

Little takeout 3-6VDC Mabuchi motors (6VDC nominal) spin approx 4000 rpm and draw 50mA no load. Stall at 300mA and measure 1-1/2" long x 1-1/16" dia with a 1/2” long x 3/32” dia shaft with a 2-sheave 9/16” dia pulley. Sheaves are 1/16” ID. Wired with 2” leads for super easy battery or wall adapter hook up. These were originally from copiers so you'll want to wipe 'em down before use.

Quartz Crystal Antenna

Build your own quartz antenna. These (2) 4-3/8" x 3" x 1-5/16" plastic boxes each have (2) boxes of quartz crystals inside and (2) aluminum U-brackets that are attached to a single screw terminal on one short side of the box. Back in the early 70's, they were originally made to be used in pairs as part of a 300 Ohm antenna. Not sure if they will work with today's TV's but all you need is cabling to connect them and give it a try. Made in Brazil, the antenna capital of South America, probably.

Electrodes-R-Us

Okay, they’re just strips of metal, but CJ says one of each and a grapefruit will get you at least a “C” at the science fair. The copper electrode is 100mm long x 18mm wide  x .8mm thick (3.94" x .7" x .041”). The zinc electrode is 4” long x 3/4” wide x .027” thick and stamped “ZN”. And both of them are awfully useful for crafters and jewelry makers, too.

LCDs

These liquid crystal displays are raring to go. As soon as we can get Mary Ann to stop playing with them we'll pick out (5) assorted displays for you. (She keeps zapping them with static electricity to see what pops up. Mary Ann is easily amused.) Sizes range from 1-3/16" x 2" to a few as large as 5" x 10". They're unused. Some have pin leads, some have traces right on the wafer. Either way, they're a terrific bargain.
