This Ruler Rules!

Our coolest ruler, hands down. It’s dark blue plastic, T-shaped, and packed with information. It’s an American Wire Gauge and a screw-size gauge. It measures UTS and ISO screw pitch, has SMD capacitor info, conversion scales, transistor and diode diagrams. It has a list of SI prefixes, digital logic gates, logic identities, electrical units and abbreviations, colors and wavelengths, transmission line equations, a protractor, a breadboard and tons more. If you’re not into that stuff, use it a 13”/33cm ruler. Measures 15" x 6-1/4” x 1/16" overall, and you might need a magnifier to read some of it. Made in the USA.

LANDFILL SAVE!

The other day we heard someone in the warehouse shouting, “I'm rich! I'm rich!” It was Pat, who thought he was standing in front of a gigantic pile of quarters. We had to tell him they were Panasonic industrial CR2032 coin cell batteries. Can't blame him, though—they look awfully similar. These are take-outs from medical equipment, and we’ll send you (50) 2-packs with each order. We’ve spot-checked a bunch of them with a voltmeter (which showed over “3 volts” power), and a battery tester (which put their strength in the green/good range). So, they’re ready to go. Help us keep these 466,000 “quarters” out of a landfill. But don’t try using them for laundry. Pat already did, and it didn’t work out well.
