Diode - General purpose rectifier, 1A, 1N400X
A semiconductor device which passes current in the forward direction (from anode to cathode), and blocks current in the opposite direction.
Starting at $0.15
Diode - Zener, 5 Watt, ±5% tolerance
5W zener diodes that are great for use in tube amps. These are commonly used to drop B+ voltages for tube modification compatibility or to create low power modes for the amp. A zener is a semiconductor device that, above a certain reverse voltage(the zener value) has a sudden rise in current. If forward biased, the diode is an ordinary rectifier. When reverse biased, it exhibits a sharp break in its current-voltage graph. Voltage across the diode remains essentially constant for any further increase of reverse current.

Potentiometer Adapter Sleeve - Converts .125” shaft to ¼"
This nickel-plated brass adapter sleeve converts a 0.125 in. (3.17mm) shaft potentiometer to ¼" shaft (6.35mm), allowing for ¼" knobs to be used on a wider range of potentiometers. The cutout on the sleeve allows the set screw of the knob to secure directly to the shaft of the pot. Depending on the knob used, a longer set screw can be required.
