5/16" BALL BEARINGS
Bear With Us
We think of these as industrial worry beads, but they're really 5/16" dia (8mm) steel ball bearings, ready to be put to whatever ball-bearing uses you might have. Our each is a pack of (50), which should cover a lot of worries, and whatever else you can come up with.

1/2" SHINY SILVER MAGNET CUBE
The Most Beauteous Cube
Voted most likely to attract by the judges, this magnet has the relative strength of 10 men. A shiny silver 1/2" cube of neodymium magnetism, it packs approx a 15-lb pull. If our boss Pat were that strong he could lift 2,160 lbs! Besides its superpower strength, this beautiful cube also would improve the looks of your fridge or bulletin board to no end.

TUBE OF IRON FILINGS
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!

COLUMN-SHAPED NEODYMIUM MAGNET
Neodymium Column
We're liking this little plated N45 neodymium magnet because it will stand on end and stick out very prettily on the ice box. Measures 1" tall x 1/4" square with a hefty, for its size, 20 lb pull. (Will also lie down on its side, of course, because everybody does.)

SMALL 3/8" NEODYMIUM DISK MAGNET
Small But Rare
Very nice little rare-earth magnet, 3/8" dia x 1/16" thick. Disk-shaped, plated, with good pull for its size. Perfect for a latch on a storage box or cabinet door when paired with a small steel screw or brad.

LIQUID CRYSTAL TEMPERATURE SHEET
Mood Sheet
See psychedelic patterns the safe way! Press your hand on this 6" x 6" sheet of liquid crystal and leave a print of swirling colors that, like the mood ring of yore, you can use as a sign of your mood. The pattern will blend and fade in seconds as the crystals react to temperature. Tiny liquid crystals inside the film-like material react to heat, 25-30°C (77-86°F) by changing colors. As science, it demonstrates the way liquid crystal displays work. And you can cut it into pieces to incorporate into a science project. Or just leave it out for guests to play with when the party turns boring.

NEODYMIUM MAGNETIC BAR
Sticky Bar Of Silver
This plated N45 neodymium magnet is shaped like a miniature silver ingot, measuring 1-1/2" long x 1/2" wide x 1/4" thick. Has a big hangonability quotient, which the manufacturer claims is 26 lbs of pull, meaning it's probably closer to 20 lbs. Impressive either way.

KILLER MAGNET
Killer Magnet
Once upon a time, a copywriter put this little magnet next to his computer monitor and got really pretty, wavy, aurora-like effects. And then got a new monitor! Don't try this at home. Our shiny, silver-colored 1" x 1" x 1/2" neodymium magnet looks innocent, but is industrial strength, pulling something like 25 lbs with enough strength left over to erase all your credit cards. And wreak havoc with your monitor.

LARGE SECTION LEATHER BELLY, ASSORTED TRADITIONAL COLORS
LEATHER LEFTOVERS
What’s left of a Kansas City cow after all the steaks are gone? Lots of leather! (Think buckskin, not biker jacket.) You choose from: 1) The one-piece Lace Leather Belly in traditional brown, black, gray and similar shades. Really more of a long half-belly, this solid piece of leather is between 2-1/2 and 3-1/2 sq feet. Ours was approx 10-1/2” wide x 45” long x 1/8” thick. 2) A pack of Leather Strips. Ours was a very assorted 2 lbs of strips and larger pieces of leather, 1/16” to 1/8” thick, in rust and brown. 3) The Farmer Bundle Repair Bag, 2 lbs of scraps in various colors. Ours contained a solid 12” x 8” piece and a very large bundle of brown leather thongs 47” long x approx 1/8” square. 4) The colorful Craft Leather Belly. Sized like the traditional ones, but in reds, blues, greens, yellows and other rainbowesque colors. Available only in limited quantities and we'll pick the color that best suits you. Lots of variety, and lots of heavy leather for the price.
