I have come up with a couple of tools and/or patentable improvements to existing tools that many homeowners currently have. I am curious to see if anybody has any suggestions for me to use in my attempts of contacting the right person(s) at companies such as Black and Decker, Stanley, Craftsman etc. Ideally, I wish to demonstrate my inventions to the person(s) whom has the ability to say "Hey, this works, this is a great idea and this will sell...we're interested." Does anybody have any suggestions? Any and all comments are appreciated. Thank yoiu very much! jbuck

I guess you didn't like (or read) my reply to your original post.

Plumber Tom,
Sorry that I didn't respond to your original post; I did read it and found most of it to be true; I was hoping that I might actually get somebody with experience demonstrating their inventions to tool manufacturers or perhaps somebody might point me in the right direction. Maybe it is naieve of me to think that I will actually find a connection that will treat me (and my invention) with honesty and respect. Thanks, however, for your response, Tom and if you have any other sugestions, I'm all ears!

Try getting a patent before you show it to them. Go to a tool trade show and carry it around with you from booth to booth showing them.
