Michael Mattox added a comment to Sling Blade

Woud be nice to get a bet visual of your product. So much goes into the design of blades and yours definately looks unique. I would like to see your string attachment. I maintain a family park. I have probably gone through at least 15 blades over the years. That is after having sharpened them several times before I scrap them or make machetes out of them.
Ideally to see your product being explained and used on a video would be super.

I leave mine on top of the washer right over the soap reservoir. If you keep the container on the top shelf it is more out of the way if you don't like it on top of the washer. if you can figure out a way to stop, I mean STOP soap residue from dripping you might have something...a simple plug. You might even consider having a dual tube and nozzel system to hook-up softners or other often used liquids. Good Luck.

Michael Mattox added a comment to walker/rider golf cart

I like your idea. I don't know where you live, but in the Pac. Northwest we have some areas where I am guessing that those tires, being thin, would need to be a wider to spread out the weight a bit. Also, it appears that one must be fairly stable and well balanced to ride this in a semi-standing position. I am thinking that this concept would be well for people with balance and no foot or leg issues, it sort of puts the people who would really need this, unable to.
I have seen units that are similar to a disability scooter with 3 or 4 wheels, specifically built for golfing, whereby a user can sit down comfortably. I do notice that you have a semi-seat. I notice you have stabilizers which would be nice, however they may have a tendency to dig in and cause ruts in some courses. I would suggest, having two wheels in front to disperse weight and stablize the ride. Get rid of the small wheel stablizers. In summary and IMHO I think it rules out the guys that would benefit the most from your idea. As it is, it sort of addresses disability, and sort of doesn't. I agree with Erin...great prototype. I would like to see something like this, but more stable and beat the sales prices of the competition to about one/half the price. I have diabetes. I walk as far as I can. When I can't walk well, I get very unstable and need to sit. So my critique stems from losing my balance at times when my blood sugar goes whacky. Good Luck though...I am waiting for something that makes sense for me.
