Offer: Giant glass science beakers (Bronx - 10471) Gifted - These glass beakers are heavy, huge and seamless: great for making terrariums! I am offering two that are 12" X 12" and one that is 18" X 6". These are beautiful, but not for a home with small children; these are NOT made of safety glass. When they break, they shatter into a million razor-sharp shards. You'll need a car for transport; not good on the subway. We are in the Bronx (10471).

Offer: Singer sewing machine model 7174 (Bronx - 10471) Gifted - This Italian-made Singer sewing machine was designed for NYC public school students to learn on, so its basic, and heavy duty. I know it works bc I've used it. However, the power cord is missing, and I cannot locate a replacement on line. I've included photos of the plug into which the cord attaches. It is a special 4-prong cord, rather than the standard 3 prong we're familiar with. Also, the bobbin holder is missing, but I'm sure that is standard, bc I've used a standard bobbin in it. I'm one block from the last stop on the 1 train - about 40 minutes from Times Square.
