38758-1, and -2. Labeled simply as “fans,” these two metal cubes are actually filtered air supply ventilators made by Dayton. Each measures approximately 29”-square. Although, with the right lamps, and on either side of the right couch, you’ve also got yourself some striking industrial side tables, I suppose.
38563-2. The tag may say “punching bag,” but it’s best used for kiddy kick-boxing practice (well, the thing has “Kid Kick” screen-printed on it, and I’d hate to think that means something else). Approximately 38”H.
From the Truth in Advertising Department comes “Red Metal Boxes.” Most of them are by Potter or Digitize and were once used as trouble transmitters. Whatever you devise for them next, we hope they transmit more joy than trouble.
Did all your best spring cleaning intentions turn into summer cleaning intentions that are actually Get All This Stuff Out of Here mandates by either your family or your conscience? Believe me, we get it. Perhaps now that we have a battalion of “trash” cans marked down to just $1.00 each you can get a jump on your junk! With prices this low—and so many choices—you can buy a bunch of them and call them “organizational containers”! We’ll never tell.
SOLD! Why yes, we do still get weird stuff in here. Exhibit A: “water feature.” You may very well find this feature super relaxing and Zen and not at all like something the sound of which causes an urge to run to the restroom.
Get in the #GivingTuesday spirit! Bring two food donations for the UW Food Pantry and we’ll give you a UW Surplus tote bag or umbrella! Donation box located next to the cash register. November 16-30, while supplies last.

We see a lot of carboys here in the Surplus warehouse, and one might rightly wonder why we never see any cargirls. Evidently, the origin of the word carboy comes from the Persian qaraba, but I’m made further linguistically befuddled by the fact that a synonym for carboy is demijohn, and that surely comes from just some dude. But you know what they say about carboys: they’re full of it.
This beautiful wood practice clavier by Virgil of New York still has its original paper guarantee label inside with a creation date of August 16, 1900. We love that they call the place of construction the “manufactory.” That’s a word that needs to come back. Alas, the warranty expired … in 1905.
45008-2. I Googled to see if I could find out what Delta Burke has been up to these days because I was thinking that, were she particularly mechanically inclined, Drilling with Delta could be a fascinating [not to mention unexpected] return to TV for her. And then I saw that this drill is made by Delta, and I realized she’s definitely been busy.
