  • Patent number: 10850897
    Abstract: A container tin includes a container base with one or more storage compartments for ingestible products, and a reclosable lid with child-resistant (CR) features. The container incorporates mechanisms for creating and storing microdoses of edibles or medicaments. The CR reclosable container contains closure mechanisms, such as a latching pin and catch assembly, that present difficulties to a child attempting to open the container but that a properly trained adult can operate without undue problems to open the container. The container includes a cutter at the lid and a cutting support assembly at the base. A user places a product on the cutting support assembly, then closes the container lid to cut the product in two. This procedure can be used with cannabis products or similar psychoactive products to create microdoses below a threshold quantity that creates a perceptible psychoactive effect in the user.

  • Patent number: 10814514
    Abstract: A method of manufacturing an article of apparel having dynamic vent-slits includes providing a fabric having a first surface and a second surface, forming a plurality of slits in a repeating fashion on the fabric, wherein a spacing between two adjacent slits in linear alignment is less than a length of a slit in non-linear alignment with the two slits and that is offset from the two slits such that the slit in non-linear alignment overlies the spacing between the slits in linear alignment, and the slit in non-linear alignment is parallel to the slits in linear alignment. The method further includes forming the fabric into at least part of the article of apparel. The slits may be positioned in one or more groupings, or aligned in different directions to open in response to different directions of stretch or movement, to provide dynamic ventilation.

  • Patent number: 10737339
    Abstract: A novel approach to a commercial circular saw blade designed for efficient lumber cutting as well as extended saw blade life because of a reduction in friction and better heat dispersion. The saw plate has thicker body transitioning to a thinner rim at a point between the bottom of the gullet and the bottom of the tooth, generally occurring at the hook of the gullet. This design increases the lateral stiffness of the blade, improves accuracy, maximizes sawdust ejection, eliminates blade wandering, decreases the amount of the cut waste and allows for increased cutting speeds without decreasing the performance or longevity of the blade. This design goes against traditional, prior art saw blade design because of its interpretation of wood physics, blade friction and side clearance tolerances.

  • Patent number: 10730200
    Abstract: A bucking apparatus to be used in conjunction with a loader and topping saw that are mounted to a logging platform or trailer. The bucking apparatus is attached to the loader and includes a plurality of hatches. The hatches can be adjusted for different lengths so that different length logs can be cut when eliminating faults from the trees. The hatches of the bucking apparatus are measured to be particular distances from the topping saw and so, when a tree is pulled through the topping saw with the loader, the end being held can be aligned with one of the hatches, and then the saw can be engaged thus creating a log of the particular length.
