"It sure is a complex process for a lay person to get something to market, especially with limited resources. My invention was a little gadget that measures the crossing angles of builders lines. Useful when setting out a building, esp. unusual…"

Brilliant!They can be found at   …See More

Hello Ian,

 welcome to BuildersInventions.  This is a casual informal online meeting place that I started for builders with inventions.  I recommend that you visit members' pages and strike up a conversation where appropriate.  My experience is that inventing is fun, but msrketing is a tough nut.

Best regards,

Mike

it's not an easy process.  Ideally it would be best to sell directly to builders through an online store.  I tried that a few years ago with limited success.  I'm working on this project right now: www.constructionguild.us   When that expands and builds out - in a year plus - I may set up an online store for builders inventions.

My name is Ahuva , I'm a Soldier from Israel, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on (ahuva_01@aol.com) for the more details.
Have a nice day.
