Ever since I started working with wood I've been building stuff to
make it easier to get better and better results with inexpensive tools
(partly because I'm lazy and partly because I enjoy creating tools as
much as I enjoy making things with 'em).
A couple of weeks ago I had a visitor stop by the shop to take the
tour - and when he left, he carried off a little no-moving-parts gizmo
I'd put together that'd caught his interest. One thing led to another;
and Saturday morning I mailed back his copy of an agreement licensing
production and sales to his company in return for royalties.
This is a first for me. Probably won't ever make me either rich or
famous - but it's a good ego trip. The link below points to a web page
with info. I don't know when it'll hit the market, but hope to see it
listed in catalogs sometime in the next six months.
The gloat part: It'll be labeled "Made in USA".
