Whether matchbook, wobble-wedge, or an adjustable
under a chair or table leg
you generally have to bend
down to the floor to make an adjustment.
I propose making furniture legs hollow, with a flexible
shaft running through them that can turn a adjustment
screw that raises or lowers
the pad on the floor. But the
levers or knobs are under the base of the chair or under
each corner of a table top, Anyone sitting in their chair
or at the table can reach the lever without getting up or
crawling around on the floor.
closest patent I could find with a quick search [xaviergisz, Aug 02 2021]
||On top of the table is a maze with a pong pong ball. People sitting at
the table must adjust the slant of the table repeatedly to get the ball
through the maze, while eating, maintaining good table manners
and talking about something else.
||[pertinax]; that's brilliant! It's deserves it's own Idea; if not
it's own website & shop.
||[pertinax]; that's a-mazing! It's deserves it's own Idea; if not
its own website & shop.
||[pertinax]; that's delicious! It deserves its own Idea; if not its
own website & store.
||(I think they should name the balls "pong
pong balls" because that is much more fun to say.)
||[xaviergisz], that patent is close enough that Id
say my idea is mostly baked. The foot-
end is almost exactly what I was thinking. All
thats missing is an adjustment lever or knob
workable by hand, in
lieu of a screwdriver as specified in the patent
and text. Thanks!
||^ well its a good idea and that proves it. bun
||Thats the case with most of my not-silly ideas.
The less silly, the more likely someone thought of it before
me. I just failed to do a patent
search before posting this one and I dont mind at
all that you found it.
