Default Heileman's old style beer stein/mug/weapon, hiking poles, Rotary tool

Heavy enough to not fall over in a stiff breeze, light enough to hit someone with.
I would wash it thoroughly before using though, it was used as a pen cup for a few years.
I don't *think* it's made with lead. It may be. What do I look like, the nutty professor? Don't answer that.
I couldn't find another one like it online, so it may be really, really, really rare. On the internet anyway.
Doesn't say made in China anywhere, so assume it was made in Japan. Or Canada. Or Massachusetts.



$5

Atlas branded hiking/snowshoeing/poking bees nest poles. The baskets are removable for hiking use, and you can get rubber tip protectors, not to protect the tips so much but so you don't put them through your toes. These are two piece, so you are seeing them in their fully collapsed state. Aluminum twist lock. They extend long enough to use them as ski poles too.
I used them primarily for hiking with a heavy pack back when my wife loved me enough to invite me on her climbing trips so I could carry all her stuff. That's no longer a problem. I also used them snowshoeing in Canada a few times, and in the UP when we first met, I used them on the ice in Lake Superior the time I had to rappel off a cliff onto the ice. Haha, I didn't tell her I didn't know how to rappel until she was at the bottom, and I was at the top. But screw that. I don't need her or these poles. I have new poles now, and they are three piece. Fit into my snowboarding pack much better.
If the grips aren't cork, they are pretty damn close.

$20

Craftsman rotary tool, like a dremel on cocaine. It will rout, it will remove grout, it will rip your dashboard wires out. So be careful. Need to make a lot of holes in drywall? This will do it. Need to bake a pie? Nope, not a chance.
You see everything that goes with it. Sorry, the rest is lost to history. Don't need much though, will accept anything made by Dremel, and a lot of drill bits, and the snakey attachment too, but it's a POS, I had it and it broke almost right away. This thing will bugger up plastic project boxes like nobody's business. Dashboards too. And tires.
If you are wondering, it's a lot bigger than a Dremel tool. About as big around as a soda bottle. The 20oz, not the 2 liter.

$10

Okay, how about five dollars on the Craftsman rotary finger wrecker?
Tim the Toolman Taylor approves of this Binford tool.

Yeah, er, I am really broke.
Really.

So, how about a haiku to help move this stuff?

The laid off diet
Doesn't pay attention to
Expiration dates

I managed to find enough beer and soda cans on the side of the road to get me to Silver Lake. Might not be enough to get me back, but that's why I am trying to sell this stuff. Can bring it with me.
