    I have recently received notice that my patent request has been granted. Now I’m ready to pay the issue fees. Would like to first find some one who could make a professional looking prototype. I made mine in the garage. It is all clear plastic. Bare bones I need a clear plastic tube and a plastic capital “T”. Can anyone steer me towards a the right place. My invention is a teaching tool to help train medical staff in the treatment of varicose veins. I appreciate the help in advance.


  16. February 13, 2012 at 12:38 pm

    Please contact me directly at home: 260-471-7625. I’ll be happy to assist you with getting your prototype made.
    With warmest regards, Dave Gross

      Jeremiah: Yes as David Laney mentioned above, there are no club dues, and to become a “member”, all you need to do is send me your e-mail address for me to add to our “list” or you can just show up at a meeting. Our next meeting is this Saturday (9/13/14) at 2 PM (we are currently meeting the second Saturday of each month at 2 PM) in the newly constructed Academic Center building of Indiana Tech (near the intersection of Anthony & Washington) in downtown Fort Wayne. We will be meeting in the “Center for Creative Collaboration” (called the “C3) in this building. Please telephone me at 260-466-7655, or send me an e-mail at and I will send you a map showing you where the building is located on the campus (next to the baseball diamond) and where to park. We would love to welcome you into our organization!
