    i,m usually on the plumbing forum. have tried to e-mail moderator, to no avail! is this forum adrift at sea with no captain? thank,s tool

    I been trough this befor TOOL everyone is gona want a peace of your pie, and there all gona want money saying your prouduct has something our people will invest in.
    Only about about 95% make it that far with there idea where they say they will put it in traid shows,you have already been sucked in cause you already have to much in and they play on that.
    Plan on spending at least $10.000 just to get it in the shows through these folks. PM me or e mail me at and I will send you some info that I have went through.
    It don't cost nothing to see if your idea is accepted thats worth a try if.BUT bewere after 5 years these Invent Tech places will sell or market your idea if you don't have a PAT ON IT.

        Keep in mind that many of the businesses that supposedly help people market ideas are primarily publishing companies. They're main interest is to have you ultimately pay them to prepare your idea with slick glossy brochures, yada, yada, yada....they may actually help some, but I suspect most people catch on to the game after investing a few thousand.
