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.

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.

BAG OF BALSA
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.

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!

STICKY FOAM BLOCKS
Hunka Hunka Sticky Foam
The uses are endless, endless we tell you, for these little 3-3/4" x 4" x 3/4" hunks of dark-gray/black open cell foam. They have a peel-off self-adhesive back so you can use them to pad pretty much anything, or make custom cases for electronics and tools. Or buy a really big bunch and make your room soundproof so you can listen to your Rush albums in peace for a change.

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.

5-3/8” LONG FOAM TUBES
Too Tubular
These are dark gray, open-cell foam tubes, 5-3/8” long x 1-3/4” OD with a 3/4” ID bore. We wouldn’t presume to tell you what to do with these, which is, of course your business, and frankly, we’d be ashamed of ourselves for violating your privacy with a lot of questions. Forget we even mentioned it. Oh, OK, try broom-handle pads, or slice them open like hot dog buns and pad the edge of a table.

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.

3" CORK RING, THIN, 3" X 2" I.D. X 1/4" THICK
THEY'RE CORKERS
Natural cork, right from those strange trees, in perfect rings. We're thinking pads, gaskets, bumpers, arts and crafts projects, insulators, or all-natural, metal-detector-safe jewelry. You pick from 2" OD x 1" ID rings that are 1/4" or 3/8" thick; or 3" OD x 2" ID rings that are 1/4" or 3/8" thick. Note that the Thins (below) are 1/4" thick, and the Thicks (below) are 3/8" thick. Got that?
