An advanced kit compared to the others, a little more deluxe and a little more complicated. It is an AM/FM radio kit from Elenco with over 80 pieces divided into lesson groups. PC board shows component placement to help learning and to minimize errors. It has (14) transistors and (4) diodes and the case measures 11"x 5"x2-1/4" Soldering required.
No self-respecting number cruncher can afford to be seen without one of these fashion classics. We'll pick out (3) black or white vinyl pocket protectors in the traditional 5-1/2" x 3-1/2" size. Order quickly; It's only a question of time before these are seen on the runways in Milan.
Take these (250) little translucent beads into the sunlight and they burst into assorted colors faster than you can say "assorted colors." How do they do it? Well, they're UV-reactive, that's how. Mostly pink, purple, rose, yellow and cream and they fade to a nice pearly color inside. Amaze your friends at picnics. Beads measure 5/16" dia x 1/4" with a 5/32" bore. Come with classroom application notes. Click here for the video.
Those long boring nights spent recharging your rope lights are finally at an end. This 16-1/2 foot rope light is 3/8" dia with (50) white LEDs inside. Mount the 2" x 1-5/8" solar cell in the yard or on the deck, plug the rope in and (8) hours of sunlight will give you up to 12 hours of glowing rope when the sun goes down. Includes the rechargeable NimMH battery, ground stake and hardware. Has standard on/off or auto modes. Water & weather resistant and rated to last more than 100K hours.
Return with us now to those golden days of yesteryear, when models were made of wood. You pick the successful Spirit of St. Louis airplane, 5-1/2” long with a 7-3/4” wingspan, or the less-successful model Titanic, 7-1/4” long. You’ll need to supply your own glue, sandpaper, paint and tiny iceberg or Charles Lindbergh.
It doesn't get much more economical in the whistle game. You get a pair of (non-chrome) steel referee whistles already hung on 20" lanyards in blue, green, pink or orange, which are guaranteed to be someone's school colors.
Our tactical twofer is a 6” long x 1/2” dia. aluminum body ball-point pen with black ink, with an automobile window breaker at the other end. In gun-metal gray, as befits things tactical, with a pocket clip on the flat-top cap. Escape from your car, then write us a thank you note.
This deluxe ABS storage case is called a Store-It-ALL, and it does. But it could be called a Carry-It-ALL, for the sturdy handle and locking clasp, or it could be called a See-It-ALL, for its translucent lid. Or a Fits-It-ALL, for the removable dividers that let you configure it with any number of compartments from 5 to 26. But the 12" x 18" x 3" OA case should really be called ALL-I-Ever-Needed-To-Get-Organized!
Time used to fly, but with global warming what it is, it now drips…off your mantel, desk, bookcase or the top of your cubicle. The melting clock is inspired by Dali's painting The Persistence of Memory and is surreal enough for anyone, even you. Measures 6-3/4" x 4-3/4" x 5-1/4" and requires a single "AA" battery which you have to supply, but can get at our affordable prices.
