This isn't a book, but it's definitely book-ish. Looks like a leather-bound volume from the Bodleian but it's just a little wooden box, approx 8-1/2" x 5" x 2" (7" x 3-7/8" x 1-5/8" inside) that's perfect for stashing the jewels, cash, or whatever you need to stash in plain sight on the shelves.
In the lab or kitchen, these clear borosilicate glass mugs have a handle and lip and remind you that science is part of your every day. The smaller 400mL one has graduations in 50mL increments and the larger 1000mL one in 100mL increments with numeric markings every 100mL or 200mL accordingly; both with more room before you have to worry about spilling. Not intended for serious lab use as the volumes are approximates. Remember to ask for 236.5ml of coffee the next time you visit your favorite diner.
Just ask him where he got his bag. Probably here. This sturdy messenger bag in olive drab canvas measures 13” x 10” x approx 5” with a deep pocket, little pocket, long pocket, snapped pocket, clips for keys, straps for an umbrella, and a padded strap. On the smaller side for messengers, it’s perfect for students, commuters, travelers and anyone who carries a bunch of stuff. (Mr. Mom alert: nothing looks less like a diaper bag.) Manufacturer suggests a price of $44.95, but phooey on them, we say.
We’re music-loving folk here at the surplus capital of America, so we like this high-quality, triangular, olive drab nylon case, originally intended to be a gun case, for toting your ukulele from luau to tiki bar. Padded, measures 22” long x 10” wide at the big end, narrowing to approx 4” at the bottom. Zipper on (3) sides, shoulder strap, outside 5” x 7-1/2” flapped pocket, and myriad slots on both sides. Also good for a junior fiddle, or some flutes and tin whistles.
Direct from our faithful hospital supply suppliers--handy dandy (and brand new) tubs for storing, sorting, scrubbing, or schlepping toys, mittens, craft supplies, chicken feed, whatever. In yellow/gold pretty-much-indestructible #5 plastic, each is approx 13" x 10" x 5" deep. (Some might be a tad smaller). They have lips and rounded ends, nest when not in use, and are graduated inside from 2 to 6 quarts.
These watertight aluminum screw-top canisters are gasketed, lined in nylon and come with a 1" slip ring to attach to whatever. Measure just over 2-1/2" tall x 1-1/8" dia, so they're suitable for a lot of pills or any number other things you need to keep dry or safe. We'll pick one in black, red, gold, blue or green.
Call it the bag of a lesser messenger. This dark olive Extreme Pak™ tote looks like a mini-backpack but has a shoulder strap plus a pair of handles. Measures approx 11-1/2" tall x 8-1/2" wide x 6" deep front to back, it's got a big inside zippered compartment, a smaller zippered pouch on the bottom, a pair of hook-and-loop closed pockets on the top, plus a plethora (that'd be 10) of band loops to hang stuff off. Mfg suggested retail is over $30. Just saying.
Rejoice, we have finally found a source of reasonably priced
borosilicate lab glassware. This is the kind of glass in the trade
marked Pyrex(tm) and Kimax(tm) labware. The stuff you can put right over
the flame of the Bunsen burner, or directly onto the hot plate. This
stuff is imported from China, and is considered student grade, which is
good enough for anything but the most exotic applications. We have
beakers, test tubes, graduated cylinders and flasks. Compare the prices
below and you will see that they are around half the U.S. equivalent.
Call us for larger quantity prices.
Eye dropper, tongue dropper, test tube dropper, petri dish dropper,
anywhere dropper. Use this 3" glass dropper, with a rubber squeeze
bulb to drop small amounts of liquid wherever you think they should go.
You will have to measure by counting drops, though, because there are
no markings on it. Also, it is called "3" because that is about how
long the glass tube is. Overall, it is 4" long.
