Re: Lab glassware

Hobbyst, that is a very pertinent question. There is nothing on the items except graduations. My real glassware is still packed, this stuff was just for mixing room temp pest poisons, with an eye to the use in the lab, but I would think it very unwise to mix them up, unless they pass a heating test....

Re: Lab glassware

Must be the OP, I'll check that out. Oliver is making me suffer. The lab had to have some minor changes, epoxy floor instead of lvt planks. What I didn't foresee was the floor slopping so much that the office chair is like a roller coaster. Might need speed bumps! At Michaels I bought 3 sizes of gra...

Michaels, the craft store, has dozens of mad scientist items. Graduated cylinders, glass syringes, beakers, flasks, etc, and they are glass! Halloween decorations.

No wiki, oops that’s Hawaiian, I mean no hurry. I did not collect much, only a few cups, as it is a

I just happen to have one of those phototubes, that I don't want. I would have to dig

Sorry to hear that, Rodney, I lucked out. Got the filter material, and a cool mount, and all

Good job, thanks Rod. My lawn sprinkler installer just told me all I needed was a welders visor,

Well, UPS just delivered the scope, a week early. Bring on the moon.

Those are glasses, and would not arrive til after the event. Daystar makes a 50mm

Rodger, Charlie, and that is a good site. There are a few stores that carry the uber-expensive
spotter scopes, so I can see what 60x does
It was very interesting reading the features list for some of the tely's, strangely

Kurt, your 'better yet' idea looks promising. The one you suggested has very little eye relief, but I will look more. None of the telescopes I looked at had good reviews from experienced users. 99% of my use will be viewing the scenery from the living room. The improvement from my old 8x40 brand X b...
