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.
Teensy tiny brushes for cleaning teensy tiny tubes, airbrushes, spray guns, tattoo equipment, nozzles, etc. Think miniature bottle brushes. You get a set of (5) brushes: 1/32", 1/16", 3/32", 1/8" and 3/16" dia. All have nylon bristles, are 4" long, and are on a slip ring so you won't lose them.
Da Mare could use this to point out cracks in the infrastructure at Wrigley Field. You, having a forgiving nature, will resist the urge to point out cracks in da mayor's infrastructure. You will, of course, use it to point out chimney cracks to the tuck-pointer, a cracked limb to the tree-trimmer, and the crack in your profit picture during a slide presentation. You can do all that and much, much more with the bright light from this 5mW green laser pointer. It's an unbelievable tool. If you need a laser pointer that seems to go on forever and is so strong that you can actually see the beam in the dark, it will be the best low-cost investment you ever made. Or the coolest high-end toy. The 532nm Class IIIa light is 5-5/8" long x 1/2" dia, with (2) "AAA" batteries (included), a momentary-on switch, pocket clip, and case. An absolute necessity for construction, surveying, warehousing, inspection and other large sites. And for playing in the dark.
Knowledge is power - in this case, battery power. You'll know from the easy-to-read gauge on this black-plastic handheld mini-tester whether a battery is good, low or needs to be replaced. The 4-1/4" x 2-3/8" x 1" tester reads "AAA," "AA," "C," "D," 9 volt, 1.5 volt button, and other sizes.
Ten electrical leads with an alligator clip on each end. Each lead is
about 20" long, not counting the 'gators. Vinyl coated 20-22 ga. wire
with a vinyl cover over each clip. They come in an assortment of five
colors with two leads in each color. The manufacturer calls them heavy
duty but we would restrict them to the light currents and low voltages
you will be using in your home experiments. Our each is a set of (10).
Couldn't tell it from the glass variety by just looking. This plastic mirror with rounded corners measures 3-15/16" x 5-15/16". Comes with protective film on both sides. We're thinking kids, camping, or just a nearly-unbreakable travel item. Pretty flexible, too, if you like fun-house mirror effects.
Our each is a set of (4) removable sink strainers with stainless steel mesh wells and flat rims. The set includes (1) 4-1/2" dia for 2-1/4" drains, (1) 2-3/4" dia for 1-1/8" drains, and (2) 2" dia for 3/4" drains.
No flames means no flames for the wind to blow out. This electric-coil all purpose lighter measures 3-5/8" x 1-1/8" x 5/8" with a retractable coil on one end and a retractable USB plug on the other end to recharge it. Has a 17-second auto-shutoff to save juice. We'll pick one in red or black.
They have the look of something designed for the space program. They're
mylar, a paper-thin shiny metallic sheet, that comes in handy when your
car breaks down in winter, or when you're separated from your climbing
group on the slopes of Mt. McKinley. Barring that, they're also a
perfect material for a do-it-yourself cold-climate Halloween
costume-near impossible to rip by hand, but cut easily with scissors.
There's no padding, so they wouldn't be too comfy on your bed, but they
sure are warm. They both come folded about the size of a wallet. The
Blanket is 52" x 82", the Sleeping Bag is 34" x 84".
