    Hello,
    I've invented, patented and will be offering a new tool to the public
    soon. I just thought I'd give this forum the heads up. It's a one
    foot
    repeating ruler printed on clear tape that doesn't pull up the
    surface
    when removed. The printing on the tape is red and the name of the
    product is Red Tape.

    Sincerely,

    Very cool product, I can't wait to see some moron
    on a job site using it to tape something like a
    cardboard box closed or to repair a cut on an
    extension cord.

    Actually, taping a box might be perfect application since many shippers
    charge by the dimensions or limit the dimensions!

    To whom were you addressing your comment? I'm not
    the inventor, I was complementing him.

    I think it depends on how you define "invent". For common usage I
    don't think it's a stretch. Before I made a product I did research
    tape, measuring devices and all similar inventions. I didn't want to
    infringe on any existing patents or submit a patent when a similar
    claim had been made. The patent is pending and my research suggests
    that most inventions are variations on a theme. I wouldn't go so far
    as to claim I invented a measuring device where none existed before.
    In fact, rulers date back prior to 1500 BC (Indus Valley). More
    accurate forms of measurement exists and people have gotten by without
    my product without loosing a limb. But there are instances where this
    simply works better than existing tools. I could not buy this product
    before I produced it, thus invent really isn't too wild a claim.

    If there's a market and you believe in the idea, go for it. :) If
    you were taking a jibe I think a better one might have been "I think
    I'll invent a milk jug with quart marks on it." Or, perhaps, "I think
    I'll invent a shoe with self guiding laces." hehehehehe.

    lineman's pliers as a hammer and a reamer.

    I've used my tablesaw to do nearly everything except slice bread.
    Sometimes the best tool is the one in your hand at that moment.

    Labelling each and every quarter inch increment with it's fractional
    description looks a bit clumsy to me. I'm guessing that you put some
    thought into this, maybe along the premise that it is easier for complete
    neophyhtes to use, but I think it's a bit overkill for anyone who has ever
    used a linear distance measuring device.

    a fern is a tool?

    according to my wife, you're supposed to use the carving knife for a
    phillips-head screw; the pointy part goes into the little cross better than
    the butter knife, which is used to open the paint cans.

    There's a display at my local industrial tool shop, with a bunch of
    those interchangeable bit screwdrivers in a countertop box. The sign
    says: "We don't care how you use it; as a hammer, chisel, prybar, or
    even as a screwdriver. If it breaks, we'll replace it." That's the kind
    of "no excuses" guarantee that men need on a tool.
