    Silica Moisture absorbers, prevent rust

    I've still got a ton of Silica gel moisture absorbers from a bulk lot I ordered through work.
    Throw a pile in the bottom of the safe to reduce rust problems over winter, also bloody good in a case with cameras, thermal imagers or any other electrical stuff.
    I also keep a small container of them in my pistol cases.


    $10/kg or 2.2kg for $20, +$6.50 shipping
    Don't come packaged like the photo, will just be loose in a NZpost bag.
    I've also got a ton of oxygen absorber sachets if anyone has a use for them

    .......Oxygen absorber sachets.......
    We've got a couple of them at work. They're on compo at the moment. We call them 'Broken Arses' or 'Oxygen Thieves'. Must be the PC term for them now

    We call them "Mouth Breathers",
    I thought I was being smart buying some oxygen absorbers for the safe, remove the air remove the rust. But turns out they are full of salt and iron, which then rusts and absorbs the O2.
