The illumination oxymoron: bulbs don’t need to be bulbous in a world of LEDs. These LED bulbs from Philips have a traditional bulb profile but are 1” wide when turned sideways and still cast a 360-degree light. Draw just 10.5W but shine a 60W equivalent. 800 lumens with a 2700K color temp, which is “warm white.” Standard medium base and yes, they’re dimmable.UL.
Pop one of these roughly 1-1/4" dia stones into the toe of a sock, smash it with a hammer, and be the first person ever to see your real-as-Nature-makes-it geode!! Ninety percent of them have the familiar beautiful white crystals inside. Formed by volcanic action, they are found all over the world, but ours are from Mexico. There is no way to tell from the outside if they have crystal centers, but we will send you two just to raise your odds, and we haven't had a dud yet in our stores!! Much much more fun and satisfaction than buying one already cracked.
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.
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).
Might be the brightest nightlight in sight. From iZOOM, it’s a faux light switch, 4” x 3” x 3/4” thick, with two blindingly bright COB LED strips flanking a toggle switch. Comes with (4) “AAA”s, and mounts with included self-adhesive hook and loop fasteners, a pair of embedded disc magnets or the (2) keyed mounting slots.
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.
Bring back the '70s for nine bucks. Screw this red-green-blue LED prismatic, rotating bulb into any standard medium-base light socket and your room turns into disco heaven. Bulb will stand about 5" above or below the socket. Draws approx 6W. CJ recommends any Donna Summer album for use with it. Please note that the remote depicted on the packaging is not included.
Mega-useful aluminum tape. A 2" wide x 50-yard roll of .004” thick aluminum on a 3” core. Has a paper backing and is conductive on the non-adhesive side. Reflects heat and light, useful for seaming riveted aluminum sheets, particularly good for cold weather and metal repairs. Our fisherman friends love to wrap wooden lures with it and work it with a piece of soft wood for metal-finish effects.
These brand-spanking new 12VDC motors are made to move automobile seats but are willing to change. They spin at approx 190 rpm, draw 1.5A no load, and stall at approx 25A. Threaded shaft is at a right angle and is 4-1/8" x 7/16". Shaft thread is non-standard, so treat it as a smooth shaft and mount pulley or gear with a setscrew. Measures 5-5/8" x 2-1/2" x 2-1/2" overall, not counting the shaft, and has power terminals opposite the gearbox with (2) 1/4" mounting holes opposite the shaft.
