What did santa bring you for Xmas?


The jolly old fat bastard forgot about me this year, however UPS man still remembered where I live.

I got:

Claisen adaptor
400mm double jacket reflux condensor
300mm hempel colum, packed with rasching rings
500ml pressure equalizing addition funnel
Vaccuum aspirator and a tube of grease
10 pack of keck clamps
2 500ml rb flasks


Not too bad a haul... will have to wait on that Glas-Col mantle, vacuum pump, and muffle furnace though...;)

What did you get?

Woohoo, I just got my organic lab set in the mail today!

Water jacketed condenser
Distilling column
4 polyacetal clamps
15 mL conical flask
Claisen adapter
Connecting adapter
Vacuum adapter
500 mL RB flask
250 mL RB flask
Seperatory funnel
Chromatography column
And a bunch of other stuff I can't seem to name off the top of my head.

I also got a hotplate, 100 ft of 28 gauge nichrome wire, and Empire Earth 2 :D.

Nothing chemistry related, I'm afraid :(

Fortunately, I indulged myself in my other hobby (model building), which eats into my chemistry funding :D

A 300$ order to skylighter. It's a pyro chem company, and they had a 33% off sale, so I only actually spent around 200$. Only... heh.

That sucks about the root canal man, I'm sorry about that

I got:
1000ml RB 3-neck flask w/ 2x 24/40 stoppers (because I don't have enough equipment to fill every hole yet
400mm Coil reflux column
2pairs of splash goggles
200gram x 0.1 gram scale (my old one crapped out)
7x7 hotplate/stirrer combo and 2 stir bars
16oz benzene
16oz toluene
4oz amyl alcohol
4oz mercury
4oz tin granules (all this stuff is in ounces because of the place I bought it from)
and 4liters of 70% nitric acid

Non chem related I got a 10/100/1000 speed 8-port network switch (my other hobby is computers and computer gaming)

I think he means P not K?

I didn't get any chemistry type stuff this year but I did get a wifi card for my linux PDA, a book about Lisp programming and some music and other odds and ends.

Oh and a DSL line

Edit: I am displeased with the poster right below me. Obviously he was not a well respected member at the hive as he can not write proper english at all. Also respected members there I hope do not run around doing synths with red P! :o I mean really what is the world coming to when people can't figure out something else to reduce...

No clue what you are referring to, contrary to popular belief, Hive names do not carry well.
