    I've seen these around hanging in garages, never seen one used...but the concept certainly makes sense.

    We've been using the same old 'Grub Hoe' that we picked up at a yard sale for $5.00, for at least 35 years. Besides the 'chisel' blade it also has an 'ax' blade on opposite side...very useful indeed.

    Had to change out the wooden handle once, and the blades are quite a bit shorter from filing/grinding, but it still works pretty good for chopping/removing roots when kept sharp. As useful/utilitarian as they are...I'm sure they can still be purchased at or through most Farm Implement dealers, but I've not seen one with the 'two' blade feature ....

    Used it just the other day to remove a bunch of aspen/poplar/popple roots ....to make room for a few more solar panels....

    I didn't know such a tool existed until I actually went scouring around online to try to find one. There are quite a few competitors out there producing these grip & leverage types of tree puller hand tools, but none of them sell in stores; I tried checking Lowe's, Home Depot, Tractor Supply, Ace Hardware, and a few other places including a Stihl store. Tractor Supply offers the Brush Grubber, but it could only be purchased online & on Northern Tool's website, it has negative reviews as being a flimsy product. This is rather odd, because on Tractor Supply's website I've seen the price for it go up over time. LOL

    I now see what you meant. I was confused. You have experienced the some thing I experience. I think of something on my own only to discover someone else already did it. Funny. Something that has been revealed by this experience is the knowledge that innovative things are being suppressed because the system is not capable of assimilating them.

    The fragility of our systems is just incredible. If we were able to make oil unnecessary tomorrow, the world would probable be destroyed by the collapse of systems. The vested interests of our world cannot be ignored. I worry about the loss of maintenance to our toxic materials containment. Humans are cranking out toxic stuff by the millions of tons. Virtual armies of people go to work every day applying toxic material to the environment in the name of pest control, weed control, and crop harvesting. That is mild compared to the heating of water to generate steam with uranium. That seems to me to be the stupidest of all, maybe excepting nuclear weapons. Everyone knows that hydro-electric plants on dams is the use of gravity for power. Gravity is the best source, but oil and uranium are being used instead. Go figure. The devises I can produce would upset the system too much, but something must be done, and soon.

    I designed a device that creates electricity via gravity. It's quite simple. I intend to bring it forward when the time is right. There are others. Transportation innovations, for example. There is so much we could and should do that can't be done at this time due to the fragility of the systems that are holding everything together. It's the sword of Damocles over this world. Take as an example the uniting of some of our systems. At this time, there are independent systems that could be integrated with others for efficiency, like the roads and the power transmission system. We could put the power lines in the roads and tap it for electric cars while saving the vegetation of the world which is assaulted daily to protect the wires. It is clear that innovations are being held back because of the vested interest and the need to support the system. I hear cost objections, but those objections are not considering the costs we are already paying. We are paying a price that could be extermination. What I can design is nothing compared to what others can do but are not allowed or deployed. Centralized power generation is the way at this time, but it doesn't make sense when independent sources can be created that cost less and have lower ecological impact. I worry for the environment while the systems worry about unemployment and vested interests. Governments worry about losing cause for existence. Business worry about profits. It's all just a mess. Clearly, an assessment, design, and deployment free of the constraints we face today would yield a planet of park-like pristine beauty with movement into space, but it's all about each entity struggling within its own limited interests.

    When the time is right? Where have we heard this before?

    I've invented a number of contraptions over the years (lots of useless ones and some useful ones)....the PTB have never expressed any interest in any of it...but I don't advertise....Wouldn't it be best to take our ideas and put them into action before the opportunity is lost or missed?

    Why wait for the capitalists to steal it or buy it?

    When I wrote about the "right time," I was referring to the right time for me. Also, when I designed a gravity system I was very vocal and even went to the academicians at the University of Texas with it. The attention that got me was not the kind one can survive. I was in grave danger. The PTB are not squeamish about preserving the status quo. In 1971 there was a lot of effort being applied to the suppression of the changes demanded by my generation.

    We live in a world that is still dominated by the mental mania that created the "divine right of kings." Equality is the last thing the PTB would like to see. A human's sense of self-worth is too often not the result of unconditional love for everyone. Slowly, but surely, things are changing. It is my hope that the self-aggrandizement of the PTB will be the incentive that motivates them to a better world and love. They will come to see that it feels even better to love than to feel superior. After all these millennia of waiting for love to come by means tried over and over again, perhaps now greed and superiority feelings can be an incentive, for incentive is a big motivator. I think it is clear that human society offers incredibly more when it is constructed from the heart. Show them something they want strongly enough and they will go after it. Once the motivation makes the world better, love will be easier to find.

    LOL....I've been openly vocal since the day I was born.....

    From 67-70 I was an active 'agitator' against the status quo. In 1971 I was still in Vietnam, still wearing the uniform, defending my life and the lives of my brothers....and I was still vocal, speaking out against that stupid war to anyone who would listen.....Talk about being in grave danger?????

    After burning the uniform....I returned to agitating....not as actively as in my youth anymore....but certainly more active than the vast majority of whiners out there....

    I've got scars, memories and an FBI file that is 'still' getting updates from some poor analyst....stuck in a basement office somewhere in Virginia....(I file an updated FOI request every few years, and am always pleased to see 'they're' still watching me.....tax dollars not spent on weapons systems are well spent IMO)

    All said....after so much promise, my generation has been a huge disappointment, having 'sold out' decades ago.....for a day at the Mall, or a week long cruise, a shiny NEW car...etc...

    I ain't shutting up till I'm planted.....

    That was an interesting post. I was protesting the war too. I just barley escaped going there myself. I was granted conscientious objector status. I lost people over there and some of my people who came back were never the same. One buddy was a tunnel rat. I wrote his song about jumping from choppers with a dog strapped to his chest and going down into the tunnels. He made it back but his dog didn't. He was still grieving many years later.

    I too have been let down by all the people who joined the movement only to become establishment hacks. It was a fad to them. They make no real changes. There was a lot of fear then. Undercover agents were infiltrating organizations and others were showing up at anti-war rallies and attempting to turn thing bad. Friends were being attacked for having long hair. Others were getting taken by one law agency or another. Our nation is in a terrible mess.

    I was moved by Alvin Lee when he sang that he would love to change the world but didn't know what to do. Figuring out what to do became my mission. It is no use protesting if there is no alternative. An alternative so attractive everyone will dedicate themselves to is what we need. TZM could be it. My only certainty is converting our societies to egalitarian money-free family organizations would do it. Money is the new slave chains.

    Cool....our current Band....Heck, just about every Band I've ever played in, I think....has performed Ten Years After's ...."I'd love to change the World"......

    Still one of the coolest and most inspiring songs out there....a true classic IMO. It took my wife about a week of practice to get that famous hook down back in the 70's....now she can do it in her sleep
