With not much going on this afternoon, I decided to do a little research. I've got an idea for a custom pot I want Steve to build some of for me (he don't know this yet) and found my self online looking at what's out there for mesh. You all know how playing on the net can be, and all of a sudden I found myself on a site called "free patents on line" and was looking at patent #5943814.

Well apparently this ole boy had more time on his hands than me and actully took the time to aquire a patent for "cement trap runners". Yep them simple cement strips seen on mine and others pot bottoms are apparently protected under his patent!

Just goes to show you, some people CAN sell anything. I better get busy and bust them runners off my pots for some government agent burst thru my front door!
