While working on a casing crew we used tools that were fabricated to make work in the field easier. I realized that if some changes were made these tools could be marketable.
THE BIG IDEA:
This tool adds safety and efficiency to running casing. It gives better control of casing to the user, allowing for faster and safer removal of thread protectors. It even keeps hands and fingers safe when putting the threaded/pin end into the box end of the pipe.
WHY MY IDEA IS BETTER THAN THE REST:
This idea is better than the rest because there's nothing out there quite like it. The Thread Protector Removal Tool adds protection to equipment and workers, while increasing productivity. Which are key factors in the oil/gas industry.
THE SKY'S THE LIMIT:
I will use the funds to get new designed tools manufactured, have the tool demonstrated, and a video produced for advertising and marketing purposes.
