Woo Hoo

My first patent (shared with three other people) - I found out Saturday.

It is for a "Railroad Car Energy Absorption Apparatus" (the Miner Enterprises TCC-IV contant contact side bearing).

That's almost as complicated as your song poll results.......

I don't think Bill Gates has any interest in the transportation industry.

Besides, I sold my soul to my company and the invention is now owned by my company.

Jeffrey - I would be happy to try to answer any questions about the song poll you might have ...

I tied a generic search and found nothing. When Jeffrey found my patent, I decided to try Google ... with better results.

By frictional damping, the sidebearing stops the railroad car from hunting side to side on the tracks (and ultimately derailing). Our TCC-IV side bearing prevents hunting up to 80 mph.

Between my laziness and bipolar brain, I just don't absorb detailed technical stuff very well. And frankly I'm frightened by your obvious supreme intellect Bullwinkle.. let's just forget I said anything :)

Jeffrey - you forget that I have a bipolar brain too ...

The patent lawyers made it look more complicated than it is. It is mostly two simple ideas combined (plus a few bells and whistles) to increase heat removal and increase product life:

1. Create large openings in the assembly to allow air to go through the assembly

2. Separate the metal part (heated by severe frictional rubbing) with an insulater that has channels to allow air to whisk away heat from between the insulator and the heated heated metal part.

Hmm maybe the patent lawyer's explanation was simpler ...
