Need some input on a product I'm designing

I am designing a product for the fly fishing industry and am building my test pilot as we speak.

I want to know the following:

What tools you typically have at hand?

How many thread spools you would keep in front of you in a session?

Are you happy with pegs to hold thread spools?

What items do you wish you had holders for while tying?
(bobbin, needle, whip finisher,ets.)

Would you rather have a tool holder/tray, or holes in your tying station for tool storage?

What other miscellaneous tool/ devices would you like to have at your finger tips?

Any thing you would want to add to this would be great. I can't reveal anything about this product yet because it is totally new and nothing like it on the market. I have a potential investor for the patent as well. If I had spoken my idea with you on this please refrain from posting any details, Thanks.

Thanks in advance for the input.

For tools, drill holes in a piece of 2X4 and be done with it. If need be take a paper hole punch, punch foam dots from a flat foam to line the bottom of each hole to protect scissor points. Looks good, costs practically nothing, stable yet portable.

For spools, the thread racks from the craft store are ok, I was given one, but frankly you are better off keeping these out of the light and dust if you have a large collection, so a drawer is best, or a couple of rows in a tray tackle box or similar. Nylon threads like Danville, Rumpf and UTC are vulnerable to light. Waxed thread attracts dust and most are waxed. If you use them all the time probably doesn't matter too much, though.

Hope that helped.

What size holes are you talkling for drilling. I plan on haveing some pegs to hold 3 spools of thread each. Some counter suck holes for bead storage as well. And some tool/feather holders.

What else am I forgetting?

DGC, this is not a home project, I am going to try and sell this product and turn a decent profit. I personally can see the ease of you wood block Idea but this thing will be a conversation piece and very functional. All I can say about it. LOL

i already have an oasis tying bench that holds quite a few spools, tools and cement bottles. what more could i ask for?

i think these products have already been designed. some need only slight modifications to be personalized to fit the user.

you would have to design some really kick ass product that nobody else has come up with to make tyers switch their particular setups for yours.

show us some of your designs for better feedback.

LOL, nothing will be released until i get the patent, and it is not even close to what you posted. It is not a station like this at all. it is more of a mobile set up. Trust me it is going to be a really "kick ass product" to quote you.

I am thinking also of some sort of hanger to have for hanging hackle pliers.

Just curious why you need input/ideas from us for something that you already think is going to be the next best thing to sliced bread??

I just wish you'd stop cluttering up the fly tying forum with stuff like this, events, & posts about your old vise to be honest

This is the furthest thing from what was intended. Just pointing out the last time I checked we had an events forum. Everything isn't an attack on you. I probably overreacted, same disdain I have for twitter and facebook and posting every idle thought. That's my problem not yours. Carry on.

It should have cup holders and racing stripes. Racing stripes make everything they are on look badass.

Instead of racing stripes Ill paint it like a trout.

Swanson, I did not mean that with mallice in anyway, and did not take it as an attack. I look at online forums as a community not just an information "highway if you will" If it bothers other I will stop posting things like that.

Nfrechet, that is similar to the bracket at what i had in mind. I am a mechanical designer so we always over desribe out intentions, and i probably say bracket 50 times a day. I was not however thinking of the same idea and I think yours will be much more cost effective.

Thanks for the constructive advice so far.
