    That's a big improvement over the USPTO search. That last time I used that it was very difficult to find patents earlier than the 1970s if one didn't know the number or official PTO classification.

    It is much nicer than uspto.

    Search "warfield spreadsheet" and you'll find a patent I filed that cost Microsoft $150M in settlement. LOL

    Pity I never saw a dime of it. My employer at the time, Borland, would not be here today had they not gotten that settlement. They'd have run out of cash.

    Best,

    I just killed nearly two hours searching out lathe taper tools. Looks like about 50 guys invented the same thing damn near, only one was original it it was really slick if maybe crude.
