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!

CLEAR ACRYLIC TUBING
You Tube?
Here's over 25 feet of tubing for you at a nice price. Made as a replacement kit for a Wagner® paint sprayer, it includes a 12-foot length of clear acrylic tubing 1/2" OD x 3/8" ID with another 12-foot length that's 5/32" OD x 1/16" ID joined to it, but easily peel-off-able. Priced so low that you can toss the 23" hunk of 11/16" OD tubing, plastic clips, and plastic pump nozzle that come with it.

2" DIA METAL-MESH FILTER
Little Bitty Filter
This small stainless steel fine-mesh filter is 2" dia x 1-1/2" tall. It has fine mesh sides, a solid plastic bottom and slight lip around the top. Nice for small filtering jobs, but would also make a passable basket for a gerbil hoops game.

PING-PONG BALLS
Amateur Ping Pong Balls
Perfectly suitable for all your non-professional ping-pong-ball applications. These guys are white-ish, with a visible seam, and are 37mm in dia, as opposed to the standard 40mm or the former standard 38mm professional ping-pong balls. Priced so you can buy enough to do any number of clever things with them.

FOAM GASKET 1-1/2"
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

ASSORTED DECORATIONS RIBBONS, TASSELS AND BEADS
ASSORTED FANCY FINDINGS
We can’t begin to describe these Fancy Findings -- this variety of small (an inch or two or three) bows, ribbons, loops, tassels, beads on ribbons, tassels on beads, little fabric flowers, lace thingies, like that, in dozens of colors. Glue ’em to barrettes, create a riot of ponytail holders, tack ’em on stuff, sew ’em together, take ’em apart—it’s like a garment district remnant sale in a sack. Each bag holds (12) identical pieces. You get (3) different bags.

BALLOON MOLDS
Scary Molds
These white porcelain molds from the balloon industry are, frankly, the scariest medical-looking non-medical items we've seen in a long time. They come in all sorts of sizes, mostly from 5" to 10" long, and a bunch of shapes: rounds, ovals, screws, rods, storks, mouse heads, all on shafts with a threaded end to screw into the balloon machine. They're a surrealist's dream, the answer to an avant-garde sculptor's prayers, and great items to leave in your medicine cabinet for nosy guests to find. Sorry we can't fill requests for particular shapes. It's all we can do to pick out (3) different ones for your package of (5), so try not to make Kathleen feel bad by begging for mouse ears. Thank you.

LARGE ASSORTED RUBBER FLAT GASKETS
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.

BROOM BRISTLES
Lotsa Whiskers
All right, we don't have the brooms to go with these bristles. Nobody's perfect. The bristles are neat, though. Most are clear, black, brown, or mixed black and white, and range from 2-3/4" to 6" in length. The individual, (approx) 11 mil bristles are tightly wrapped in 2-1/4" to 3" dia bundles. That would be, like, a gazillion or so per bundle. We'll pick a size and color for you. If you're a taxidermist looking for animal whiskers, a hobbyist looking for unusual craft materials, or a broombuilder looking for bristles, you've come to the right place.
