If You’re Particular About Masks

Even before masks became a common sight, we sold a bunch of N95 particulate respirators because Surpies have a long history of woodworking, model building and DIY renovating. Contractors love these! These masks are from 3M, (we don't get 3M masks often) model #8511 with a cool-flow valve, and are for filtration of particulates. Cool-flow valve keeps your face cool and, perhaps more importantly, dry. You’ll get (10) per box, and yeah, they’re made in the USA. Date Code is 2025

Now for the 3M Specs

  • NIOSH approved for at least 95 percent filtration efficiency against certain non-oil based particles 
  • Features the 3M™ Cool Flow™ Valve 
  • M-Noseclip adjusts easily for fewer pressure points and greater comfort 
  • Braided headbands two-strap design with dual point attachment helps provide a secure seal 
  • Spacious and durable Designed to increase comfort and wearability 
  • Advanced Electret Media is designed for ease of breathing

Eye dropper, tongue dropper, test tube dropper, petri dish dropper, anywhere dropper. Use this 3" glass dropper, with a rubber squeeze bulb to drop small amounts of liquid wherever you think they should go.

Scope Your Stethos!!

Stethos is Greek for chest. Indeed you can scope your stethos with this stethoscope, or your friend's or your dog's. But it works equally well for picking up any sound being transmitted through a solid medium. Listen to the air flowing through the heating ducts, the water in the pipes, the sounds of machinery, the termites munching on the floor joists!! The color does vary so we will select from what's currently available. We've had blue, teal, red, black, burgundy, green and purple, but there may be other colors yet to be seen! Not professional quality, but also not just a toy.

MASHERS AND SMASHERS

Porcelain mortars and pestles. Great heavy duty mortars, with sides that are easily 5/16" thick on the smaller ones, and up to 1/2" on the larger. The mortars are glazed outside, but rough inside, the better to grind, and have a pouring lip. The business ends of the pestles are unglazed, while the shafts are glazed. Very functional, very good looking!! So grind your own spices, fresh herbs or lab concoctions as you prefer. You get a mortar and pestle as a single order.

Put A Table On Your Fridge

These Periodic Table magnets stick all the time—not just periodically. They’re part of a (128)-piece modern Periodic Table of the Elements set in a 4” x 6” x 1" tin. You know, like “K” for potassium and “N” for nitrogen? Cooking is science, so why not have these magnets in your kitchen? You could also use them to learn about the elements, since they’re based on Dmitri Mendeleev’s 1869 study aid. Completed chart measures 9-3/4" square-ish when arranged, with each element magnet measuring about 3/4” x 1/2”. Feel free to spell out funny words, too—this isn’t your final exam.
