I remember the Gilbert sets, My aunt closest in age to my parents bought one of the Gilbert sets for her boys. Try as I might I could not convince my parents that it was really needed for my education.
About two years later I learned that Fisher Scientific would sell to me, my experiments centered on building small rockets. Now that would raise the thoughts of Home Land Security. Ah yes Zinc Dust and Flower of Sulfer. It landed over there!
