  • Patent number: 7241076
    Abstract: A method for reinforcing or repairing a pipe pulls a liner assembly with a flexible smooth bore liner and a semi-rigid helix that gives non-collapsible characteristics within the damaged pipe for both linear pipe sections and curved pipe sections. The existing pipe is first cleaned with a specially designed brush with two wooden spheres at each end of the brush to prevent snagging or jamming during brush operations. The liner assembly is then pulled through the total length of the pipe and anchored at each end with retaining sleeves, which are sandwiched and glued within the liner assembly and the inside diameter of the existing pipe.

  • Patent number: 7071674
    Abstract: A voltmeter for measuring atmospheric or other voltages eliminates the dead band without application of high voltages or radioactive isotopes to increase conductivity in the region of the probe. A vacuum tube is operated at substantially reduced conduction in order to achieve high sensitivity and eliminate passive components in the input circuit. A voltage is developed to produce meter indication or control charging or charge-neutralizing circuits. In the preferred embodiment, a meter scale is calibrated to indicate the presence of atmospheric charges of particular interest to anglers. Naturally occurring electrical currents are known to stimulate the feeding of fish.

  • Patent number: 7036833
    Abstract: A lightweight platform dolly with a one-piece lightweight composite fabricated support platform has a rectangular support platform with at least one bumper block. The bumper blocks can be adjusted to accommodate varying loads and conditions. The adjustable bumper blocks change the length or width of the lightweight platform dolly, raise the load on the lightweight platform dolly for better vertical clearance, and enable the lightweight platform dolly to accommodate uneven bottom items. The bumper blocks are secured with flexible hinges and T-Bar block holders and receivers, which can secure loads.
