Great concept, have you pitched any manufactures yet?
Comment by Gary McCallum on June 10, 2011 at 1:44pm
The manufacturing is not the problem. It has already been produced. Getting the word out and changing fifty years of cutting drywall is the trick as it is completly new in its concept and design. I'm trying to licence it to a major company/manufacturer so I can work on the next four tools and four solar inventions.Ttwo of my other tools will have a substantially larger market than this first invention. I know sales will be it the millions of units a year and will dominate a part of the market

Very true, past practices is a major hurdle all of us here have to overcome. You should also submitt your idea to the inventors corner at They get about 100k hits a month and it will help get your idea out there.

How sturdy is this tool?  Will it take abuse?

Hey Mike,

Any luck getting the Cord Snake out there, seems pretty handy.

Thanks Tim. Tools in action already has a sample. I met Dan Maxey at the national hardware show last month in Las Vegas.

Mike it is sturdy. There was a thorough testing process at the manufacturing facility. This included the standard drop tests and being put on a machine that repeated the pivoting and scoring action. The tool was removed without failure after what was calculated to be five years of professional heavy use. It is also guaranteed. There has been a 1% problem or failure rate with the toll being replaced free of charge. This product now is from the first manufacturing run. There are 114 peices in this tool and it has to be hand assembled.

Yeah, Dan's a good guy and his inventors corner gives us global coverage. Pretty cool.

Good luck, and I'll keep an eye out for your product in the local big boxes.
