    Cool siste. At our HOG meeting there is always some kind of trivia and about half is something to do with patent numbers. This will give me a little edge. Thanks for the info.

    Yes, it does look like a cool sight. I have patent numbers for some interesting Pin-Ball parts I wanted to look up. I will give it a whirl. I remember in the past to actually look up patents at the official government sight you needed very special software (similar to PDF) that was hard to find for free or was expensive to buy.
    I will give it a try..Tks

    Buying some one's patent or idea is a very long time manufacturing technique. Where did the Harley vee four engine go? When Harley decided not to make it an engineer went to Yamaha. The Yamaha Venture was born. How do you think all the automobile manufacturers come out with the same price range and line of cars. Fossil
