Balls Of Steel

What can we say about chrome steel ball bearings besides their essential uses? Well, a lot, actually. They're perfect for Rube Goldberg displays and artwork. Imagine them in various sizes in a glass container. Imagine dipping them in paint, rolling them on canvas and making the world forget about Jackson Pollock. They also work as heavy-duty marbles, and might even calm you if you place a few in your palm and work them like a stress ball. See what you can come up with when the wheels start turning? Ball bearings. Wheels turning. We know you got it. You pick the size that suits your bearing needs.

You Into Cubism?
There are myriad uses for these colored and unfinished wooden cubes. (Yes, myriad, which is even more than several plethoras.) These cubes are 5/8” on a side and there are (42) of them in each pack, and we’ll send you a pack of colored and a pack of unfinished. Now go think of something clever to make besides a bunch of dice. Although there’s nothing wrong with a bunch of hand-painted dice.
$2.95 PKG (2)
Hunka Hunka Sticky Foam
The uses are endless, endless we tell you, for these little 3-3/4" x 4" x 3/4" hunks of dark-gray/black open cell foam. They have a peel-off self-adhesive back so you can use them to pad pretty much anything, or make custom cases for electronics and tools. Or buy a really big bunch and make your room soundproof so you can listen to your Rush albums in peace for a change.
$4.50 PKG (6)
Natural cork, right from those strange trees, in perfect rings. We're thinking pads, gaskets, bumpers, arts and crafts projects, insulators, or all-natural, metal-detector-safe jewelry. You pick from 2" OD x 1" ID rings that are 1/4" or 3/8" thick; or 3" OD x 2" ID rings that are 1/4" or 3/8" thick. Note that the Thins (below) are 1/4" thick, and the Thicks (below) are 3/8" thick. Got that?
