  • STRONGER THAN THE COMPETITION – Made from the world’s strongest magnetic element, our pure neodymium disc magnets are incredibly powerful. This set of premium rare earth magnets can handle your project or task.
  • UNMATCHED QUALITY – Your safety is our highest priority. Chipped, broken magnetic shards are dangerous. We use thicker, industrial grade, durable N45 grade neodymium rather than extremely brittle N52 used by our competitors.
  • PREMIUM QUALITY COATING – You will love the smooth and shiny finish. Our magnets are protected with a corrosion resistant Ni-Cu-Ni (Nickel-Copper-Nickel) coating to create a high quality silver look that doesn’t rust or scratch.
  • UNLIMITED USES – No matter your application, our powerful magnets can handle the job. These thin magnetic discs work great as strong refrigerator magnets, arts and crafts, DIY projects, hanging spice jars, pictures, whiteboards, tools in the garage, or science classroom at school.

 

These magnets are designed with a hole in the middle so that they can be mounted via the included magnets.  That may be helpful for an around the brewery project you’re looking to do.

Potential uses: Use as “keeper magnets” to retrieve and secure stir bars in yeast starters.  Use as part of a DIY stir plate build.  Use to help secure a DIY magnetic drip tray on your kegerator.  Assist with keeping signs, labels and notes in place.

More Info

From the product description, check product page for current description, price and availability:

  • REUSABLE: Unlike tape or string that can only be used once, Big Bands large rubber bands are reusable many times over, helping you reduce unnecessary waste and costs. When done with them, simply remove and store them for your next project.
  • SECURE TRASH LINERS: These oversized rubber bands are ideal for securing trash can liners so that you can put more into your garbage bin without worrying the bag will slip and cause a mess. Big Bands fit can sizes from 13 qt. to 32 gal. so they’re great for both home and commercial use.
  • FREEZER AND MICROWAVE SAFE: These big rubber bands are freezer and microwave safe, making them ideal for securing lids on food for storing leftovers, or for reheating them the next day. Keep chip or cracker bags tightly closed to seal in freshness.

  • MADE IN THE USA: Big Bands heavy duty rubber bands are made in the USA so you know that you’re receiving a high quality product, fresh stock and fast service.

 

I use these to secure affix my Inkbird temp probe to my fermenter.  The 7″ x 1/8″ are large enough to work with my 7.9 and 5.3 gallon sized Speidel fermenters along with my 7 gallon SS Brewtech Brew Bucket.  I like these vs using something like duct tape because i don’t like the adhesive that’s left behind with tape.  I would guess these will work with many sizes and types of fermenters, but I can’t give you a conclusive list.

Portable Travel Elastic Clothesline with Clips [Dry Bags, Tubing & More]

HAWATOUR Portable Travel Elastic Clothesline Adjustable Clothesline with 12pcs Clothespins for Outdoor and Indoor Use (Blue)

HAWATOUR Portable Travel Elastic Clothesline Adjustable Clothesline with 12pcs Clothespins for Outdoor and Indoor Use

More Info

From the product description, check product page for current description, price and availability:

  • Those who understand the trouble of drying clothes when in travel or cost of using a gas or electric dryer when cleaning clothes know the paybacks of using a clothesline. The clothesline is made of stainless steel material that makes it strong, durable and rust retardant. It is ideal for home, indoor and outdoor use. It is a recommended clothesline for regular travelers, campers, and hikers that love spending much of their time outdoors.
  • What makes it unique is the black clips that restrain the 12 pieces of clothespins from sliding. Therefore, clothes won¡¯t glide to the center. Again, the clips can be moved smoothly from left to right and vice versa by press and hold the little button on the top of the clips. Those who prefer the freshness of line dried linen can rely on this clothesline. It can be used in hot, humid, wet and dry environments.
  • Used to hang different types of clothes such as towels, cloth diapers, underwear, socks as well as bathing suits. Those that love traveling, camping, swimming, fishing, boat riding etc. can use it between the trees or in their canopy to attach wet towels and trunks. Moreover, it is capable of retracting, hence, can save a lot of space when not in use. It can be stored with ease as it takes the least space in a traveler’s backpack.
  • Hawatour Portable Travel Clothesline also comes with steel hooks at both ends that can be attached anywhere: hotel, bathroom, laundry, RV, boat, balcony or even attached on trees. The user can have an instant drying space anywhere and whenever they need. Additionally, clothes dry naturally, smell fresh and retain their original properties thus increasing their lifespan
  • It’s elastic and can be stretched to any length up to 10 feet. Comes with a full year of hassle-free replacement and warranty thus ensuring a complete peace of mind to the buyer. In the case of faulty or malfunctioning parts, one can get immediate replacement or refund

 

Note from HBF: This is intended drying clothes, however, I think it could have some homebrew applications… Possible applications – dry washed and rinsed vacuum and mylar bags for re-use, drying tubing and drying other smaller items around your home brewery.
