Our 1-1/8" dia compass has a glow-in-the-dark face and a movable bezel with 5-degree increments in a 2-3/8” x 1-1/2” teardropish housing. Attached to a 1” slip ring by a black canvas strap. Get one for all the scouts, add to your EDC or attach one to your emergency go-bag.
From iZoom®, our light source of choice, comes this tiny flood that lights way above its weight. Hard to believe (but true) that such a small package is rated for a staggering 500 lumens with (21) white LEDs that have a 30,000-hour life. It’s also indoor/outdoor weatherproof! Measures just 5” x 3-1/8” x approx 1-1/4” with a booted power switch and gasketed battery compartment for the (3) included “AA”s. Includes an adjustable C-bracket for hanging, standing or mounting to the included 4” x 5” base. Should run for a steady 2-1/2 hours on fresh batteries.
Our most minimal, but still really bright gooseneck lamp is a mere 6" long in flexible rubber. Plugs into a USB outlet and has a bright COB LED on the business end. Travel essential. Holds its shape well, which makes it great for laptops. In assorted colors that we’ll pick because it doesn’t matter.
We’ve all seen coffee cups designed to look like toilet bowls, but this, we are proud to say, is easily the most dignified, tasteful toilet-bowl in the world. In white ceramic (much like the real thing) it’s 5.75” tall x 6” wide and holds 14 oz. Nice big grip under the tasteful tank, too. Sorry, no discount for a service for 8.
For traveling surgeons? Veterinarians? Dunno, but this is a small, retractable utility knife with a pointed, #11 scalpel blade inside. Measures 4-1/4" long with a plastic handle when retracted. Looks to us to be great for crafting, hobbying and pretty much any fine cutting. Made in England, and they ain’t talking.
Work like a watchmaker with this extremely steampunkish clip-on triple loupe. In brass-plated steel, it clips on the temple of a pair of glasses with the three 15/16” dia lenses (2X, 2.5X and 3X) on 1-1/2” long arms that swing in and out and are adjustable via set screws. The spring clip for the glasses opens to 5/16”. Working distance is short like all loupes, but you’ll look extremely cool.
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.
Our newest superheroes are these titanium tweezers, non-magnetic, rust-proof, stronger than mortal tweezers and with really skinny tips. Our each is a trio, (2) at 4-5/8” long marked “1” and “5”, and (1) at 4-7/8” marked “AA”. All three are perfect for for high-precision work, including under a microscope, but they’re not too proud to pull a splinter out of your finger.
Sort of like kleenex, because cellophane used to be trademarked but isn’t any longer so you can now say cellophane all you like. Cellophane, cellophane, cellophane. You’ll get (48) sheets of 12” square cellophane, a dozen each in red, yellow, green and blue, for teaching kids color mixing. But feel free to use them for anything. Includes instructions for making your own color paddle.
