Ten Roentgens & Counting…

If Madame Curie had owned this, she'd be alive today. (She'd be more than 140 years old, of course, but still….) Our Radex RD1503 digital radiation meter evaluates the ambient level of gamma radiation, and can detect objects polluted by beta active radioactive nuclides. It uses a Geiger counter to detect the amount of gamma radiation within 40 seconds. It indicates the ambient dose equivalent in µSv/hr (0.05 to 9.99) and the µRem/hr exposure dose rate on a scale of 0.1 to1.25. The values are displayed on a 1-3/4" x 1-1/8" LCD screen. The presence of each particle is indicated by a clicking sound, for quick identification of affected areas, and it has an audio alarm with 3 adjustable ranges. The unit measures 4" x 2-1/4" x 1" and comes with a detailed manual and technical certificate. Requires (2) "AAA" batteries. Made in Russia. CE.

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.

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 Back in the early 70's, they were originally made to be used in pairs as part of a 300 Ohm antenna.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.

No Mount Motor

Our motorman, CJ, called this reversible 12-24VDC motor strange, mostly because it has the power contacts mounted on the face, bracketing the 11/16" x 1/8" mostly striated shaft, and has no mounting brackets. But that shouldn't stop a clever person like you. (Hint: it was probably made to fit into a sleeve of some sort.) At 12VDC, draws 100mA no load, stalls 850mA and spins approx 900 rpm; at 24VDC, draws 150mA, stalls 2.2A and spins approx 1800 rpm.  Measures 2-1/4" x 1-13/32" dia.
