The United Inventors Association of America

HI, I found this site by accident really – but I’m glad I did. I’m not sure if many of you have heard of The United Inventors Association of America – but in the event you have not – we are the largest Inventor Organization in the world. We’re also the only Government registered non-profit 501(c)3 in the inventing industry. Our mission is simple – to educate inventors so they are not taken advantage of. There are hundreds of thousands of creative people like those here on instructable who are taken advantage of each year as they work their way through the inventing process. The UIA helps to arm them with education about how a product is taken from your basement to the store shelf. Membership in the UIA is FREE – and the opportunity to learn from professionals in the inventing industry, well, that’s priceless. If you get a moment check out the UIA ( or find a local Inventor Group in your town! Thanks – and keep being creative. Mark

Finding a builder to test a prototype

I am working on an item, and it requires a small bit of dimensional lumber, ply, and screws. I am trying to make the plans as specific as I can, but having worked in the engineering field as a draftsman many years ago, I know that mistakes can and do get made. So, I am wondering how I would go about finding someone to test build (without fooling with the wiring and such for the electrical components) my plans to find any errors or oversights, inaccurate or unclear directions, and the like. How would I go about doing that? Is there even a forum on Instructables for people to be test-builders? That would be a great thing if there were.

Weekend Builder links not working (Ubuntu)

Consistently, the links in the weekend builder do not work for me. After spinning for a long time at the "" referral counter, the page times out. To visit the projects featured in the email, I have to either search for the project in the main page, or parse out the instructables link from your "" referal counter, both of which are rather annoying. I have tried viewing the links using firefox 3.0.10, Midori (webkit based) and Epiphany (gecko based) in Ubuntu 9.04 with the same results in all browsers, on different machines and networks. seems to be faulty.

Knex Gun Builder's P90 - pictures of mine

Because it didn't work to give Knex Gun Builder my pictures with a comment or whatever I made a topic. For stupid people, 100% CREDIT TO KNEX GUN BUILDER Now about the gun, IT IS AWESOME. I changed the barrel a bit, so the ram rod reach further and the range was so suprising, I got with a lot of rubber bands 21 metres! (uhmm.. about 60 feet I think)!! But that's really good! the only weak thing about the firing was that the bullet flipped sometimes in midair. About the looks, ... Even more amazing. A true masterpiece haha:) And the last thing is that is pretty comfortable.

Who are your favorite builders/makes your favorite guns?

Alright I know there are tons of other contests and things that are similar all relating mainly to skill so I decided to mix it up a little and ask for more opinion than anything. Who are your favorite builders or at least make you favorite guns? They don't have to be the best guns. This means you don't really need to be a knexpert (although your chances increase) to be "nominated". By the way just for the fun of it to show popular builders I'll add one's avatar after they have been "favorited" 5 times or more. ( I know I won't be right away or maybe not at all but I do want this topic to pass through the filter easier) Alright don't be offended if you're not on here it doesn't mean you aren't good in my eyes. In no particular order... Dsman- Well we are sort of friends in a way so I do look forward to what he makes. We are sort of rivals in a way.Extreme Builder- He's got quite a few innovative designs. He is one of the few people I wanted to take the exact mech or gun and make it.I_am_Canadian- I guess I like him more as a person than for his knex but the combination just overall makes him a favorite.Trauts- Another fellow replicator and that's what I'm all about...mostly.Uh I can't think up any others right now so give me a while. I'd like to say I respect all those who used parts or ideas from my guns for theirs ;pBakenbitz- Well he made the mech that inspired EB's full auto mech. He also made the BBKWG which I find a great gun to compete against for highest rating...if my ratings didn't get attacked by jealous people.P.S. There is no limit...well don't go over board. I'd say pick around 4-6. Don't forget to give a reason why.Oh and my name is TheDunkis like The Dunkis. If anything you capitalize the D in Dunkis. You can address me just as Dunkis when you talk to me as I use The just to emphasize that I'm the only Dunkis. But when you mention me in 3rd person use The Lol and there is your long lesson on how to use my name.

Weekend builder link to account or default to show all on one page

Hi, Love the web site and I love getting the weekend builder emails. Its a minor frustration when I click a link in the email to an article then have to login to see the entire article on one page. Perhaps this minor annoyance is deliberate to ensure users login, or create accounts for user metrics... Is there a way that my email links perhaps are specific for me. So when i click through to your site knows its me maybe with some cookie...? I'm getting theoretical hyperthetical here because I don't really know what I'm talking about.. let me start again..
