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.

MAGIC STONE EGG
Egg McChameleon
Another gem plucked from the A.S.&S. mirabilia. The shape and size of a hen egg, this opaque stone (or matte-finished glass - we're not sure which) is interesting in itself. Touched with a red penlight in a dark room, the entire egg becomes a brilliant ruby color. Blue light/blue egg, etc. Fun and fascinating, and with a little sleight of hand, a sure way to convince the plebeians that you have some mysterious metaphysical power.

1/2" STEEL BALL BEARINGS
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.

12" WOODEN DOWEL, 1/4" DIA
A FEW GOOD DOWELS
A good dowel is always a good buy, and we’ve got some good dowels at great prices! These wood dowels come a variety of Asian hardwoods including Sesendok, Geronggang and Yellow Merantis. They are a very nice blonde color and moderately heavy. The dowels are strong, stainable, and warp–resistant. All are 12” long; a package is (10) 1/4” dia or (5) 1/2” dia dowels.

FOAM TUBES
Hunk-O-Tube
You almost certainly have an unmet need for 9-3/4” long x 15/16” OD black closed cell foam with a 1/4” bore in the middle. Big fat soda straws? No? How about handles for all your homemade tools? Slit them and make car-door guards? Pad your own coat hangers? Slice ’em up for washers or custom furniture pads? Probably best just to buy a bunch and figure it out later.

THIN WOOD
Micro-Plywood
Small pieces of very thin plywood for your craft and model-making needs. You get 18 cubic inches, which will translate into multiple sheets of 3-ply poplar, birch or similar wood at 1/8 to 3/16" thicknesses in random shapes. Our sample was (6) sheets, 6" long x 2" to 3" wide, some at 1/8" and some at 3/16". Perfect for custom-made dollhouse doors!

BAG OF BASSWOOD
Wood You Believe...
A neat bag-o-wood, suitable for model-making, art projects and hobbies of all sorts. The balsa bag weighs almost 3/4 of a pound, and is a random assortment of balsa that may range from 1/8" square strips to a 5" long x 2" square hunk, and lots in between. The basswood may have half a dozen 5" long x 2" square pieces, 8" x 3" sheets, and a whole bunch of 1/16" to 1/8" strips. Whatever the variety of sizes, either bag will total approx 72 cubic inches in all, which is more than it sounds like.

ASSORTED BALLS, PKG(8)
Styro Spheres
Nothing says crafts like genuine Styrofoam™ balls-older than glue guns, more fun than a barrel of sequins-and you can't have too many. Our handy assortment contains (4) 1", (2) 1.5" and (2) 2" balls which sounds like a do-it-yourself solar system if you ask me.

30" CORRUGATED PLASTIC TUBING
You Tube?
This translucent, and nearly transparent, corrugated  plastic tubing is the sort used in inhalation therapy applications, but you'll think of something else, we're sure. Our each is a section 30" long x 7/8" with a 13/16" ID.
