Pick up this 1-3/4" x 7/8" x 3/8" ceramic pick-up magnet while we still have it. It's in a heavy metal housing and has a stationary metal hoop, about 1/2" i.d., on top. The manufacturer tells us the magnet will grab up to 5 lbs of metal, however Pat and Magnet Testing Team #3 have repeatedly lifted 10+ lbs, so it's very strong. Especially if you're going to dangle it on the end of a cord to gather spilled nails or to fish your keys out of the lake/pond/sewer/drain!
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
Can't beat a classic. These uncoated ceramic donut magnets have a 1-lb pull, which makes them dandy for classroom or refrigerator use. They measure 1-1/4" dia x 3/8" ID x 3/16" thick and are polarized on the faces. You get a wrapped roll of 29 donuts.
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.
Or just stop worrying about the line breaking. Battlecord is skinny but megatough stuff. And this one is a 50-foot length of black cord rated for 2,650 lb test. Measures 1/4” dia with a 7-strand core and is rot, mildew and UV resistant. Made in the USA for Atwood Rope.
Smart campers buy glow-in-the-dark rope. You'll get (100) feet of 5/32" dia 7-strand paracord with a 220-lb working load, a 660-lb breaking point, and a nice light green glow-tone. Handy for not tripping at the campsite, and for rustling cattle in the dark, as long as they weigh less than 660 lbs.
Our each is 100 feet of of paracord (tactical cord) from Atwood Rope Mfg. Measures 3/32" dia (think round shoelace) with (4) internal strands and a 275-lb test strength. UV inhibited; rot and mildew resistant. In assorted solid and blended colors, from which we'll pick because we have impeccable taste in cordage.
This plated N52 14,200 gauss neodymium magnet is shaped like a miniature silver ingot, measuring 1-1/2" long x 1/2" wide x 1/8" thick. Has a big hangonability quotient, which the manufacturer claims is 15 lbs of pull, meaning it's probably closer to 13 lbs. Impressive either way for such a cute little 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.
