Fun With Iron Filings

Put 'em on a sheet of paper (or glass, or plastic, or any number of things), put a magnet underneath, and watch them do what iron filings do when they meet a magnet. Weird fun coupled with basic physics. Our each is 3/8 oz, which is approx 146 gazillion iron filings, and pure hell to clean up unless you have one of our handy-dandy aforementioned magnets!

Little Bitty Filter

These Poppy Seeds Weigh A Ton!

Don’t put this shaker jar in the wrong place--it’s just a clever way to store and use iron filings for a physics class. You’ll get a clear glass spice jar-looking jar with a screw cap that lets you dial small/medium/large openings. Inside is 12 oz of iron fillings, 40 to 80 microns, the equivalent of grains of sand.

Letter To The Editor

Sir: It is indeed a shame what our country has come to. I refer to these foam gaskets I recently purchased. They are black, 1-1/2" OD x 1" ID x 3/16" thick, very dense and spongy. I have found them to be excellent vibration dampeners in various mechanical devices in my home and shop. But why did they cost me so little? This low price is an outrage that I worry could lessen the value placed on these fine products by the youth of today. The city council should investigate this matter. -name withheld

Unusual Object

Closest we can come is that this was part of a meter kit, but we don't know what part. It's a 1/2" long x 3/8" wide nearly triangular black-plastic tube with sheave through the center, attached to a 7/16" x 13/16" thin wire frame with a mounting hole. Looks like the rear sight on Spock's phaser, but may have been a bobbin or wire guide of some sort.

GAGGLE OF GASKETS

Black neoprene gaskets in a variety of sizes and shapes: loops, hoops and flat. Stretchy, a little dusty, but in good condition. The small round assortment gets you (2) gaskets, approx. 1/2"  dia cross-section, in loops with overall diameters between 1 and 3 feet. The large round assortment gets you approx. 3/4" dia. The Flat assortment is pieces that make loops of 2 to 5 feet dia. The rubber is about 2" x 1-1/2", but the shape varies: could be square, grooved, V-shaped, or something else. Use as is for really big valves, or better yet, chop it down to size. A great way to get cheap rubber materials for your non-critical applications We'll pick the exact dimensions and, in the case of the Flat assortment, the shape you get.

That Would Be "Martian"

You've found perfect tires for your model of an LEV-SFC (that would be Lunar Exploration Vehicle, Stable Foot Class). StableFeet" are groovy blue plastic tubes, closed (except for a small hole) at one end. They're 3-1/4" long, and are made to fit over a standard 1-1/8" steel tube, like, say, the T-legs of an ironing board. If you don't use the striated rubber extenders to stabilize an ironing board or dress up tricycle handlebars, though, you'll have more left for your MEV-SFC. Our each is a package of (4).

Sparkly Part

Wethinks this is a glass, mirrored halogen lamp reflector, but it could also serve as the shade for a pendant lamp. It’s a honey in any case. Measures 4-1/2” across x 3-1/4” deep in a parabolic shape with hundreds of small mirrored sections inside and out. Has a 1” ID hole where a lamp neck could go, with a 1-1/2” OD x 3/8” neck. Bottom edge also has a 3/8” lip around it. Could also be the most formal funnel ever made, or a candle holder if you put a blob of putty under it. Or a sparkly princess skirt if you stuck the top half of a Barbara doll into it.
