When you develop something new you have great advantages on the market as you have an item which no others can provide. The term "Unique Selling Point" (USP) is very fashionable nowadays in the terms of marketing.
On the making side my interpretation of the abbreviation USP would be "UnSpared Pain", as you have to manufacture every minor detail that is not a technical standard. In the picture you can see some pushers I have manufactured during many hours and rests of the preliminary products.
Even these little tools for the disassembly of the float bed are very labor intensive, including:
- turning of the grip, the trapezoid thread rod and the hexagon nut
- cutting and drilling of the flat stainless steel bar
- welding the nut on the bar and the wrench insert on the thread
- bisecting, glueing and oiling of the grip.
Well, actually I wanted to show you that I spare no pains to build your bed!
