It snows here every year, but only at the very summits of our 3 tallest volcanoes (Mauna Loa, Mauna Kea and Haleakala). The snow level almost never gets below 9000 feet in Hawaii during the winter, but since these mountains are taller than 13,000 feet, 13,000 feet, and 10,000 feet, respectively, they get dusted with snow a few times a year. It rarely stays on the ground for more than a few days though.
Although the rest of the island chain enjoys warm tropical weather the entire year-round, there have been "freak" cold storms a few times this century that have brought local snow storms down to as low as 3000 to 4000 feet. This snow has melted very quickly, however.


Maybe a sand plough :)

Go right ahead! just back it up with US Steel!

Also make sure you stainless is 'Merican. I imagine there's as much variety with 303 as there are toilet papers. Carpenter steel is a local plant near me in Reading, PA that makes a good majority of the the stainless used in medical implants - they make many other grades too, including material for the turbine shafts in our more recent fighter jets! Just in case you need a source for some US metal!

Yes, we buy US materials, promote USA brands and shout "Merica" often.

And as the saying goes...."You get what you pay for".

You guys never sit around on your collective ass and just talk like so many do. You're always pushing to create. Kudos you both of you.


V3X,

Thanks for the Kudos.

i have been working with advertising and such for about 8 years, and this product dont stand out in any way making me want to buy it, even if its strong enough to tow a car, its just for opening bottles. and i can get those for free :-)

but if u go for a spesific marked lets say spudders, its easyer to sell the product.
For example, make a scale on the opener for adjusting the optimal spark gap on a spudgun.

Offer the bottle openers in 17-4 stainless or 4140 and heat treat them for "chuck norris like strength". You can mention that they are made of the same stuff that rifles and guns are made from, because thats what guns are made from, only the strongest.
Then, you could do ridiculous destruction tests once the openers are heat treated to show how unnecessarily strong and tough they are. An overkill bottle opener for an overkill individual. Charge them $100.00

What moonbogg said is exactly what I was trying to make a point of. If you make it from really cool or unique stuff, people will notice it and pay more just because they can.

I don't know about suiting spudder's needs, but there's plenty of other really expensive hobbies out there you can try and tag along on.

That video is the right way to sell it, right on guys :wink:

If I wasn't a student I'd fork the money out on it (asides from having machining equipment/making knifes and being able to diy it), always happy to invest in a cool gadget that's well engineered (oh, except that I don't drink beer)
