Can't beat a classic. These uncoated ceramic donut magnets have a 1-lb pull, which makes them dandy for classroom or refrigerator use. They measure 1-1/4" dia x 3/8" ID x 3/16" thick and are polarized on the faces. You get a wrapped roll of 29 donuts.
For keeping your special itsy bitsy stuff in. The bottoms are sky blue; the tops are clear plastic. They measure 2-1/16” long x 1-3/16" wide x 5/8" deep, with snap-top lids and they’re just as cute as the dickens.
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.
You buy as much cord as you like and make your own extension cords with these male and female electrical connectors. Also use them to replace damaged plugs or sockets. Rated for 15A at 125V, type B. Use with 14AWG wire or thicker. Connectors are 2-5/8" long x 1-1/2" dia at their thickest, with strain reliefs on both at the cable sides.
We love the name, so-called because they’re made for very small blood vessels. These are carbon-steel straight-locking hemostat forceps, 5” long with narrow serrated 7/16” tips. And yes, you’re permitted to use them for other stuff if you’re not a surgeon. (Or even if you are a surgeon, actually.)
Donut magnet you can take to town!! 74mm dia x 14mm thick with a 30mm hole. Very strong and well pedigreed - in fact, its kin are activating pacemakers. They are of a high permeability ferrite material with a lovely light blue or white epoxy coating. Okay, we have them because there is the odd bubble, slight scratches or the word MAGNET painted in the coating which ruled them out of the medical ball, but they're fine company nonetheless. Good display bases, paper clip traps, and super for classroom demos.
They're back! Those of a certain age will remember being taught to crouch under their school desks in case of nuclear attack. Shortly thereafter, the gov't, in its infinite wisdom zoomed about the cityscape plastering black and yellow signs on buildings with basements to designate them as fallout shelters wherein it stored cans of water and radiation meters which were so insensitive that any reading could only mean the past tense of crispiness. We have a quantity of these signs, brand new in the sense that they have never been plastered, but antique in the sense that they are Cold War originals and may show slight wear from being stored. 10" x 14" , 25 ga. galvanized steel. They have a black base coat on the front over sprayed with orange/yellow reflective paint in the familiar design rendered nearby by our faithful artist. This is a true collector's item fetching $50 and up in antique stores! A tasteful addition to even the dullest basement hangout.
Just like buying salami, except you can't take notes with lunch meat, and these pens cost less than sausage. We bought them in bulk, and we're selling them in bulk. Our PKG will get you (2) lbs of assorted, but very nice, ballpoint pens with a gallimaufry of logos and names. For future reference, pens weigh in at approx (50) per pound, give or take.
Five guys playing the electric brobdingnag? No, just gigantic red rubber bands, made to hold stuff on pallets together. Striated along their lengths, they measure 48" long x 3/4" wide x 3/32" thick and will stretch to a 7- or 8-foot circle, or more, depending on your nerve.
