sterling engines
x-ray tubes

aerogel (that superstrong super heat and cold resistant stuff used for the heat shealding on shuttle crafts)
bunsen burners
meteorites
neodymium magnets

you sir, have just made my day!!  And tomorrow too!

Everywhere else I look for scientific supplies will only sell to laboratories and schools/universities.

The College I'm going to has a big time ceramics/glasswork division.  In my material sciences classes, I wonder if they'd let me make uranium glass.

Someone said elsewhere the site was owned by Bob Lazar. Was he not the one who claimed he worked on alien UFOs for the goverment? He seems to be quite a fraud. I don´t think I would give him money.

It seems to be his site. My personal opinion though is that if he is honest in what he sells and gives good value for money and proper customer service I could care less what he claims to be.

I believe he also lied about his scientific qualifications. I´d think twice before buying a used car from him.

Well another way to get some very good stuff is check to see if any of your state schools (provincial schools elsewhere) have a surplus store. I live in Seattle and the University of Washington has a great surplus store where they sell a lot of old weird lab equipment.

I've bought quite a few things from his site, and have been happy with every item. While some of his background may or may not be true, but I can testify that United Nuclear does provide a good service for quality products at a fair price.

This is really cool, and so are the fog-circle machines (the Zero Launcher and the mini Zero Blaster).  They could be used for awesome effects!

I have no judgement on the United Nuclear site or its owner, but it looks very interesting!

THANK YOU! I have been looking for stuff from both sites.

Maybe if he makes enough from selling stuff he can stop fabricating nonsense and just concentrate on the business?

Yeah, the folks at UN are pretty cool. There has been some controversy with the owner there, but nothing that should deter customers. The issues you may hear of on the eatherwebs were/are of professional disputes (i.e. the world of physics, NOT the shop) and personality conflicts. (a buddy of mine is on the other side of one of them, and he buys from UN)
 
This is one case that I'll put a good word in for someone who has had some bad press. On the 2 or 3 occasions I have had to talk with him at length, he kept the business separate from the UFO stuff. He never even brought it up, even after learning where I work.

 The reason I am even posting this is in case there are people who have 'heard things'

Some of the science he dabbles in could be considered 'fringe', but so was Tesla's work.

If you get in good with the faculty, occasionally they'll just GIVE you stuff. Being an English major, mostly this is relegated to awesomely old books, but I don't know what you science-y chaps might luck into.
