For surplus everything: electronic parts, hardware, robot parts, glass lab beakers and petri dishes, gadgets, knick-knacks, art supplies, etc. Cheap prices because someone decided to liquidate a ton of things at once.

TIMER, 0-10 MIN, 115 VAC Ten Minute Timer tell a friend about this item so they can check it out
A 115 VAC motor, an N.O. microswitch, and a control cam are assembled into a timing mechanism which will close a circuit for an adjustable interval up to 10 minutes. Pat points out that by removing the stop on the cam, the motor will keep running and can then continuously provide “on” for ten minutes and “off” for about one in endless cycle. Change or modify the nylon cam and you can vary the on/off proportions within the roughly 11 minute cycle. Wow!

Someone has entered your room! You’re not in there to catch them, but the infrared light barrier you built has sounded the alarm! This Velleman MK120 mini kit includes all the components for both the 2″ x 1-1/2″ transmitter and 4″ x 2″ receiver (sizes approximate). The transmitter and receiver can be installed up to 12-1/2 ft apart. Breaking the infrared beam between them sets off an 85 dB alarm and lights an LED. Includes instructions, a schematic, 9-volt battery holders and adapter jacks (but not the solder, soldering gun, or the 2 batteries or adapters).
