Glass coils

no idea what all this coiled glass was used for, but
the lab needed clearing out so to the recycling bin it
went. I would have loved to have had time to fill
them up with various coloured liquids to make it look
like I do 'real science'

i will blog them tomorrow.

these things are fantastic but we need to get rid of stuff so we can move to a much much smaller suite of labs. The lovely large teaching labs we have now are going to be turned into a suite of offices for the Dean. Still, who needs science students to learn practical skills, a crazy idea if ever there was one!

Hello, would you be willing to sell some of the tiny coils?
Please let me know as I Want to use them in some "mad scientist" props.

Thanks, Ed.
