Finally, I hired a professional, Justin Aiello of Aiello Designs LLC, to make the first actual prototype of the Dyno Lead! After a lot of Googling I came across his site and quickly decided that he was what I was looking for (I need an entire post on inventor companies and the various traps/scams out there). Justin is one guy with lots of know-how and good 'ol smarts. He has guided me through the process and helped bring raw ideas to practical fruition. And we're not done yet!
So after multiple rounds of my hand drawings and Justin's 3-D renderings, he sent me the first "real" Dyno Lead prototype. Obviously the aesthetics and components are not in final form, but it's in good enough shape for testing the most innovative aspect, the cam-locking mechanism, which Justin did a great job at designing and engineering. It's a pretty awesome start and will only keep getting better. Check out the video.
