I just got back my latest idea from the electroplater, this one is a hitch mounted stand that Iíd sell for $200, here is a 17 second demonstration of it.

Includes; bag, 17mm spanner, 10,12,20mm shafts, 15,24,25,26mm sleeves.

You should patent these designs if you can.

Have you sold that one yet?
If not I'll take it, or the next one you make.

This hitch mounted version is a winner I reckon, nice and simple.
Just weld a bit of box section to a post or bench to use it in the workshop

Need to plan on selling a lot to justify the cost of protecting the IP.
Even if he sold 100+ units per year it'll still add more than $10 to the price.

How much does a patent cost?

Spread over its entire 21 year life, an Australian standard patent for a single mechanical invention typically costs in the vicinity of $30,000 + GST (an average of about $1,450 + GST per year).

An innovation patent to the same invention would likely cost about $9,000 spread over the patentís 8 year life (an average of about $1,150 per year).

You donít need to pay this all at once and the patent process can be stopped at any time. Per the graph below, the costs are spread over the years but not completely evenly. During the early years there are a few bumps in the graph related to the costs of writing the initial patent application and examination. To stop the process, simply let us know. We will charge for work already completed but there are no further costs.

I finally gave Ian's hitch mounted stand a run tonight and I'm happy to say I still have all the skin on my knuckles, I didn't swear once and at no time were tyre levers bouncing off the walls of the shed.

It's simple, solid and lets you set the tyre at a comfortable height so there's no straining your back or knees and it all packs away in a bag.

All it really needs now is a 9 toe logo

yep i used his full stand on the weekend and it was great. I have been looking at something to use that sits at a good height and this was perfect. Makes it so much easier being able to spin the wheel around freely.
cheers Ian

Thanks heaps guys, Iím chuffed, this goes a long way to making it all worthwhile. The whole project was about inventing something new that makes a small part of some peoples lives a little bit easier, something they will appreciate using for a lifetime.
