tens of thousands of dollars? I assume that's in Canada, cuz that's where you are. In the US, he could get it patented for quite a bit less than that!

From the United States Patent and Trademark Office website, Services Page at: http://www.uspto.gov/web/offices/ac/ido/oeip/catalog/services/patserv1.htm

Assignment Recordation
The Assignment Division records the transfer of ownership of patents and trademarks, as well as other documents that affect titles to patents and trademarks. Rules regulating assignment practice are set forth in 37 CFR 3.11. A cover sheet which allows for entry of all information specified in 37 CFR 3.31 must accompany a document to be recorded. Copies of documents are acceptable and highly recommended. Do not send duplicate copies. Copies of current recordation cover sheets, word processing macros for assignments, and related products to produce cover sheets are available.
Fees for recording assignments:

Patents
$40.00 per property
Government Register Documents
$40.00 per property
Confirmatory Licenses
No fee if submitted in a format approved by PTO
Expedited service
$40.00 per hour (3 hour minimum) plus the standard recordation cost
Patent Classification Research
USPTO will provide a suggested class/subclass or field of technology for searching purposes. For information, call 703-308-0595.
Fee: free

Basic filing fee - Utility
filed on or after December 8, 2004

Fee: $330.00
Small Entity Fee (if applicable): $165.00
According to USPTO, Shadowkin (as an independant inventor) would qualify for the small entity fee (If the owner of the invention qualifies as a small entity (e.g., independent inventor, a small business, or a nonprofit organization), the filing, issue and maintenance fees are reduced by half.)


So "Tens of Thousands of Dollars" isn't even close. You should let him know so we can see his setup!

records the transfer of ownership


Thats just that. Thats not the actual filing for a new patent, that covers the transfer of patents. So if party A sells his patent to party B, they pay that small fee top update the paperwork to show party B now owns said patent.

The initial filing of a patent still costs thousands.

That looks like a great piece of equipment, and I'd be interested in buying one sometime in the near future. While it doesn't look that complicated, I'm not especially handy and building my own would be a sizable investment in time and learning. I'm sure we can all appreciate the value another person's skill can have even when dealing with things that look fairly simple.

I'm not ready to buy just yet, but I was wondering what kind of turnaround time you have filling orders. Thanks

Between the feedback you've gotten over on TRL and the couple of videos on the site, this is definitely on my wishlist, very near the top.

Just for an FYI, so people don't say "I thought it was okay, because Martin did it and got away with it"...

Site says Ringinators were to be made available on the tenth. Any idea when mine will ship out?

I called my machinist today to see if they were ready and he said no. Something about one of the CNC machines breaking down. He guaranteed me that they would be done this week though.

The only part left to make is the arbor that holds the blades. Once thats done all my orders will ship asap. So it looks like everything should ship on Friday or so.

Here's hoping. I'm basically facing either making a living through my craft or total bankruptcy, and soon.

Hate to be a pest, but I'm checking in on the status of the Ringinator. I have not received an update since the Friday estimate.

They are in the clutches of UPS. Evil or Very Mad As soon as they get delivered to me, I'm repacking them and mailing them off to everyone who's bought one.

Simple suggestion to everyone: Patience is key. Machines break, lives happen, mail in all forms will be delayed eventually, everyone is human.

I noticed my update before I left for work to "Packing" that made my day. Cause it looks like I timed a wire order perectly then :d

I wasn't tooo worried about waiting, When things are on back order a wait is to be expected Smile
