PT Cubes, a Cool Desk Toy for Science Teachers, Students and Technology Admirers

PT Cubes, a Cool Desk Toy for Science Teachers, Students and Technology Admirers, Invites Kickstarter Contributions

York, PA — Everyone today is familiar with, and still admires, the very organized and functional periodic table without which no chemistry class could be run. An innovative project is now bringing sleek, cut and polished elements from the periodic table in the form of cubes that can be kept on a desk or working table.

B-My’s is now inviting contributions for making small, one inch polished cubes from elements such as Aluminum, Zinc, Iron, Chromium, Titanium, Nickel, Copper and Zirconium. All cubes will contain at least 90% of the original metal, and the surface will be polished and laser labeled with the element’s name, symbol, atomic number and atomic weight.

“If you are a teacher, you are bound to talk about these elements. How impressed would your students be if you handled them a block of a real element?” says Brian Meyers Jr. of B-My’s.

The PT cubes will be a great possession for teachers, students of various faculties, engineers, and everyone who admires the world and receives inspiration from the wonders of nature. PT cube will form a portion of the periodic table, which enlists all basic elements that the world is made of, right at an arm’s distance or to be held and touched, or compared. For visitors too, the PT cubes will form an interesting topic of conversation.

“Have the excitement of metals from the Periodic Table at your fingertips. We have delivered fully and on time for our previous Kickstarter projects, and we plan on doing the same for this one,” says Brian Meyers Jr.

The PT Cubes crowdfunding page is now open for funding, and is an all or nothing project, to be funded only if the goal is met by December 16, 2017.

New Kickstarter is Live! – PT Cubes

We have just launched our newest Kickstarter called PT Cubes – Metal Cubes from the Periodic Table.

How would you like to have elements from the Periodic Table on your desk that you can feel and touch? Well, now you can! Order the PT Cubes Today! For one low price, you can order a set of 4 cubes.

Are you a Teacher, an Engineer, or just someone who likes cool desk toys? Well, now you can have your very own elements from the periodic table at an arm’s reach with PT Cubes.

When these are on your desk, you can look, touch, and hold them.

If you are a teacher, you are bound to talk about these elements. How impressed would your students be if you handled them a block of a real element?

If you are an engineer, like myself, you are always thinking outside the box about the next big thing. With these blocks, you could play with them, or compare the materials for your next project.

Even if you aren’t a teacher or an engineer, you can place these on your desk or on a table at home for great conversation pieces. Impress your guests with elements that they never heard of!

What elements will you get if you order?

For the lower level (Starting at just $38 USD), you will get 4 PT Cubes with 1 stand. The elements you will receive are Aluminum (AL), Zinc (Zn), Iron (Fe), and Chromium (Cr).

Aluminium is a relatively soft, durable, lightweight, ductile, and malleable metal with appearance ranging from silvery to dull gray, depending on the surface roughness. It is nonmagnetic and does not easily ignite. A fresh film of aluminium serves as a good reflector (approximately 92%) of visible light and an excellent reflector. The yield strength of pure aluminium is 7–11 MPa, while aluminium alloys have yield strengths ranging from 200 MPa to 600 MPa. Aluminium has about one-third the density and stiffness of steel. It is easily machined, cast, drawn and extruded.

Zinc is a bluish-white, lustrous, diamagnetic metal, though most common commercial grades of the metal have a dull finish. It is somewhat less dense than iron. The metal is hard and brittle at most temperatures but becomes malleable between 100 and 150 °C. Above 210 °C, the metal becomes brittle again and can be pulverized by beating. Zinc is a fair conductor of electricity. For a metal, zinc has relatively low melting (419.5 °C) and boiling points (907 °C). Many alloys contain zinc, including brass.

Iron metal has been used since ancient times. Pure iron is relatively soft, but is unobtainable by smelting because it is significantly hardened and strengthened by impurities, in particular carbon, from the smelting process. Crude iron metal is produced in blast furnaces.

Chromium is remarkable for its magnetic properties: it is the only elemental solid which shows antiferromagnetic ordering at room temperature (and below). Above 38 °C, it changes to paramagnetic.

For the upper level (starting at $110 USD), you will get the 4 above + 1 Stand, and the following 4 PT Cubes with another stand. The elements you will get extra include Titanium (Ti), Nickel (Ni), Copper (Cu), and Zirconium (Zr).

Titanium, as a metal, is recognized for its high strength-to-weight ratio. It is a strong metal with low density that is quite ductile (especially in an oxygen-free environment), lustrous, and metallic-white in color. The relatively high melting point (more than 1,650 °C or 3,000 °F) makes it useful as a refractory metal. It is paramagnetic and has fairly low electrical and thermal conductivity.

Nickel is a silvery-white metal with a slight golden tinge that takes a high polish. It is one of only four elements that are magnetic at or near room temperature, the others being iron, cobalt and gadolinium. Its Curie temperature is 355 °C (671 °F), meaning that bulk nickel is non-magnetic above this temperature.

Copper is one of a few metallic elements with a natural color other than gray or silver. Pure copper is orange-red and acquires a reddish tarnish when exposed to air. The characteristic color of copper results from the electronic transitions between the filled 3d and half-empty 4s atomic shells – the energy difference between these shells corresponds to orange light.

Zirconium is a lustrous, grayish-white, soft, ductile and malleable metal that is solid at room temperature, though it is hard and brittle at lesser purities. In powder form, zirconium is highly flammable, but the solid form is much less prone to ignition. Zirconium is highly resistant to corrosion by alkalis, acids, salt water and other agents.

About the blocks are base:

The base will have 4 cutouts to display; it is made out of Aluminum and will be Black Anodized. This is made in the U.S.A.

All blocks will be made overseas; all will be polished and be labeled with a laser similar to the Aluminum block. Due to high costs, we were only able to obtain some samples of Aluminum, but the other blocks that are smaller are just examples of the final product. Each block is a 1” (25.4 mm) Cube. All metals will contacts at least 90% of the original metal.

We have delivered fully and on time for our previous Kickstarter projects and we plan on doing the same for this one!

For Sale: 1979 Dodge Magnum XE

he mid-sized Dodge Magnum lasted only two years before being replaced by the smaller Dodge Mirada. A sporty-looking upscale car, the 1978-79 Magnum still has dedicated followers.
Worldwide Enclosed Door To Door Transportation Along With Low Rate And Long Term Financing Available
The Magnum was sold in two forms; the “XE” and the “GT”. It was the last vehicle to use the long running Chrysler B platform. The appearance was somewhat of a rounded off Charger, and was in response to getting a car that would be eligible for NASCAR that would be more aerodynamic, something that the 1975-1978 Charger was not. Styling features included four rectangular headlights behind retractable clear covers, with narrow opera windows, and an optional T-bar or power sunroof. The Magnum was well-featured with power steering, brakes and seats; the suspension included Chrysler’s standard adjustable, longitudinal torsion bars, lower trailing links, and front and rear anti-sway bars. The base engine was the 318 cu in V8 with Lean Burn, while two and four-barrel carbureted 360 cu in and 400 cu in V8s were optional; weight was nearly 3,900 lb.
The Magnum had a design for those who grew up in the muscle car era, but who were now family people. After spending my teens and early 20s in R/Ts and Super Bees, Now having a wife and two children and long trips for vacations. Yet, burning inside was the need for something that didn’t look like dad’s car.
The Magnum had a muscle car look with comfort and room for a family. It sported hideaway headlights, and a sloping nose. Performance wise, the car had a front and rear sway bar, torsion bar suspension, and rear leaf springs. The torsion bar/leaf spring gave the car an edge over coil-spring cars like the Mustang/Camaro.
