TAKE A LOOK AT THESE NEW IDEAS FOR YOUR HOME AND FAMILY · BY PETER DRYDEN RADIO DIRECTION FINDER: You can tune a new hand-held RDF to the AM broadcast band as well as marine and aero beacon bands worldwide without need of additional modules. It requires no reference to ship's heading to provide an accurate position fix even under adverse sea conditions (claims the maker), doubles as hand-bearing compass, and is rechargeable off 12-volt boat power supply. Details: Brocks Electronics Corp., Dept. PP, 12 Blanchard Rd., Burlington, Mass. 01803. (above left) BOLT-ON BIKE ENGINE: Mountable in a few minutes on any standard bike from folding model to 10-speeder, this new engine weighs only 11 pounds, attains speeds to 24 miles per hour, and gets 215 miles per gallon of gas. Pedal a few feet, flip the clutch lever, and the engine starts with no rope to pull. Equipped with two mufflers, it's claimed to be the quietest gas-powered engine available. $199.95. Details: AquaBug, Dept. PP, 100 Menick Rd., Rockville Centre, N.Y. 77570. (above right) HELP FOR ANGLERS: Put your pole in this device and you should be able to lie back on the bank and relax (claims the maker). When a fish strikes, the device is triggered and the hook is set, giving you time to pick up the rod, play the fish and land it. With steel frame and legs, plastic rod-holding tube, steel trigger with coil spring, the unit weighs 1'/2 pounds. It's available in a size for rods with handles under VB", another for rods with larger handles. $14.95 ppd. Oak Grove Enterprises, Dept. PP. Box 47A, foristell, Mo. 63348. (above left) STOWAWAY STOOL: This welded-steel, two-step ladder safely supports up to 800 pounds and folds, when not in use, to 1" width for storage under counter, in tray rack, or on a wall hanger. It has a non-slip step surface, non-skid feet, comes in five designer colors--chocolate, lime, snow, sunflower, tomato-and is attractive enough (claims the maker) for many other uses, including plant display and as an extra party table or tote seat. $26.95 ppd. Be/mar Corp., Dept. PP, Box 801, Weslport, Conn. 06880. (above right) FOR YOUR COFFEE FILTERS: A new canister can hold up to 200 fluted filters, keeping them free of moisture, odor, and dust. The twist-lock, airtight cover has recessed finger grips to make it easy to open and close. The white styrene canister with brown polyethylene top measures 6" in diameter, 6" in height.
