1. I filed a provisional patent application for a knitting creel, which lapsed many years ago as I did not have the funds to proceed. I understand that this method is used by many manufacturers now.
2. I prepared a full patent specification for filing of a provisional patent for the manufacture of flexible polyether foam, but did not have the finance to file a provisional. This method gave vast economic improvements to the productiion process.
3. I prepared a full patent specification for filing a provisional patent application for a method of constructing a swimming pool, but did not have finance to file. This method has subsequently been used to construct many thousands of swimming pools in South Africa.
4. I filed a provisional patent application with the South African patent office for an escalator hand rail cleaner, I ceded the rights to a third party as I did not have the funds to develop a prototype.
5. I have filed a provisional patent application no.62190769 with the USPTO for a CVT automotive gearbox, which is completely new and revolutionary.
6. I designed an industrialised building system which was used by us to construct houses, clinics and schools in Botswana in the early 70’s. The buildings are, to the best of my knowledge, still standing. The panel system I designed is today the basis of most industrialised building systems and we were the first.
7. In the late 60’s I designed a method of making foam mattresses with a separate pocketed system to be independently load bearing. This basic concept is today used by many mattress manufacturers as a “pocketed coil system”.
8. I designed and built 30 formula Ford racing cars in Zambia, which all ran well.
9. I designed and made a machine for the clearing of blasted rock from the face in mining and transporting the waste rock to a dumping tunnel area. The initial tests were very promising, but to develop and make a successful mining machine requires very large sums of capital, which I did not have.
