Not every well-made rotary tool is a big-D. We consider this one not only a good-quality tool, but an excellent buy. The fitted plastic carrying case 12" x 8-1/2" x 3-1/2" contains not only the 120VAC-powered 8,000-30,000 rpm mini grinder, but a stand with a C-clamp to mount it on a bench or table, a 3-ft extension shaft, and a good assortment of bits, grinding stones, cut-off wheels, etc, including collets to fit 1/8" and 1/16" bits. The telescoping stand extends from 10" to almost 22" and holds the tool above your work, while you grind, sand, cut, etc., with the tip of the convenient, easy-to-grip, flexible extension. A nice package, and a very nice gift for yourself, or for anyone who enjoys working with hobby tools.
These white microfiber cloths are larger, at 6" x 7-1/2", and thicker than usual. Made for medical equipment (so you know the quality is excellent), they're dandy for eyeglasses, lenses, computer screens and other electronic equipment. White with a dark blue edge (with a small logo in one corner) they're actually attractive and could double as pocket squares. Bundled by the pair so you'll get (6) cloths in our Pkg(3), or try our super low 20-pair price.
Introduce your house plants to the Book of Ecclesiastes and let them turn toward the window all by themselves so they get photosynthesized on all sides. This motorized turntable measures 10-3/4" dia x 2-1/8" tall and turns on a dozen internal ball-bearings so slowly you might not even notice. But trust us, it's turning. You set it for (1) or (2) revolutions per week, like in a developing nation, and add (3) C-cell batteries for power. Will hold up to 40 lbs.
Make your own fridge magnets. Everybody's doing it. You get a brown vinyl sheet magnet that is self-adhesive on one side so you can stick pics, or whatever, to it. Or cut it into whichever shapes and sizes you like. No special scissors needed. Measures 12" x 10" x .019" thick.
"Very interesting," our chief bottle washer said. This 3-1/16" tall x 1-7/16" dia corked glass bottle has a cream-colored rubber coating on the outside and a 15/32" ID mouth, with a little lip like an old-time baby bottle. The coating may make the bottle less likely to break if you drop it, It will certainly make it less likely to scatter shards of glass all over the floor! Holds approx 30ml (1 oz). Now with corks included and perfect for writing special messages on.
Our magnetic sheets aren't large enough to make a magnetic bed, but they're just right for making a bulletin board, hanging on to a rounded surface, or clinging to a car door with their glossy magnetic side while their self-adhesive side holds your removable sign. They're a flexible, very dark brown rubber-like material, easily cut with scissors. These large sheets, a 2-ft piece is cut from the 2-ft wide material, and you pick a light (.011" thick) non-adhesive, a medium (.018") self-adhesive, or a slightly thicker (.021") self-adhesive sheet. Our PKG(2) is a 2 Foot x 2 Foot sheet.
Start with our selection of punches from Paper Shapers®. We'll pick (5) different paper punches, with cutouts approx 3/8" to 1/2" across, from a staggering variety of shapes, including hammers, leaves, birds, state outlines, animals, fish, tools, geometric shapes and many others. The punches themselves are 2-1/2" x 1-1/4" ovals with a thumb press.
Our dark blue canvas zippered pouch is 7-1/2” x 5-1/2” by approx 2” thick, with a second, 4-3/4” x 4-1/2” zippered pouch on the front. An unobtrusive and unidentifiable (at least to us) logo is stitched on it, and on the back are (2) elastic straps and a snap-open belt loop perpendicular to them, so you can wear it vertically or horizontally. No belt? It has a 5” long wrist strap.
Our black vinyl heat–shrink tubing is 1/4” dia, already cut into 2” lengths, and shrinks to half its diameter. The tubing is marked “fuse link 20 ga.” Great for protecting items from the elements! You’ll get a package of (500) tubes.
