Speaker for the August 12th Meeting

Trouble Maker, Makes A Fortune

Let’s face it, truly creative people have a hard time fitting in the corporate world. When a visionary sees an opportunity for improvement they just can’t help themselves. They have to bring it to the attention of their superiors. Who, instead of taking it under consideration and complimenting the initiative, usually condemn the concept as an intrusion by saying, “Keep your nose out of that” or worst case scenario, remove the Trouble Maker.

Alas, such was Harvey Padden‘s case when he got his first few jobs out of college. They could see he was brilliant but he was cursed with the ability of seeing the whole picture. Not only that, he wasn’t much for theoretical conversations. When he got an idea, he sat down at a work bench and started putting things together.

Eventually, he realized that he needed to be in his own business. In charge of his own life. So he found his niche and he was Very successful at it, creating and modifying measuring devices for industry.

You see, not every invention has to be a consumer product. Quite often, there is more money in the Business to Business ( B to B ) market. However, the steps to success and the work involved are basically the same.

Mr. Padden is the consummate inventor. When we sat down to discuss his presentation I was enthralled, story after story, by the way his mind works. There is an intensity there that I have seen in many successful professional inventors as well as those just starting out.

There is also the calculated risk taker, that is the corner stone of every successful entrepreneur and nose to the grindstone determination necessary to run your own business.

When he asked me if the group would be interested in his story, I emphatically responded, “Absolutely, I have been looking for someone like you for quite some time”. No matter what industry you are working in, no matter what type of invention or inventions you have, we can all learn a lot from this man.

However, ya an’t gonna get no learnin from this guy unless you get yer B…ody down to LIGI Tool & Engineering, Inc.

Speaker For The September 9th Meeting

FREE CAD Program

What could be better than that?!? I’ll tell you, a FREE CAD program that is easy to use with very simple tutorials that actually work and, here comes the best part, it will give you pricing for the part you just created, on the fly. You can even order it right then and there.

I mean… what more could you ask for? I know, I know, a unit that could capture the vision in your head and do all the work for you. Inventors! Always looking for the easy way out. Well, this is as good as it gets.

How do I know? I tried it out for myself. At first, it appears deceptively simple and I thought how could you get complicated shapes with so few tools but that’s the beauty of this program. By mastering just a few simple tools, in no time, you can draw just about anything you want.

Let’s face it, everyone serious about inventing needs to learn CAD. Sure, you can sketch something out on a napkin and bring it to a professional. Then spend hours ($) playing with it, refining it, blowing your entire budget before you get it right OR you can spend some time learning this new skill then spend as much time as you need to perfect and produce your product.

eMachineShop.com will be giving us a LIVE demonstration via Skype. Their presentation will include some basics to get you started then some more advanced techniques to give you an idea of the things you can do with the software as well as the services they provide which are quite extensive. They do everything from Rapid Prototyping through machining, various types of cutting, injection molding to full production runs.

To take full advantage of this presentation, I suggest that you go to www.eMachineShop.com and download the software Right Now. Go through some of the tutorials and start working with the software. So when you come to the meeting you will have your questions ready.

I can almost guarantee that once you start working with this program your life will change because You will be able to take your vision and bring it to life right before your eyes. There is no greater motivation than that.

To start this Life Changing Experience of turning your vision into reality come to LIGI Tool & Engineering, Inc. (3220 SW 15th Street Deerfield Beach, FL  33442) at 1:00 pm on Saturday 9/9/17 and learn what eMachineShop can do for you. Doors open at 12:30pm.
