    Simple device

    The other day I had a very simple thought of a thing that would make my life easier (and probably yours) and figured I'd search the internet to find this thing to buy it. Turns out I could not find this thing anywhere. The idea is just a simple modification of two things already being made in mass quantities by the same manufacturers but as a combination of the two in one product.
    This is a very simple low cost product where you would normally just have both things I'm just tired of having one and not the other at any given time.
    I am assuming this thing has been thought of before just never manufactured since either not enough people want one or they make more money selling you two things.
    I have no plans what so ever in producing this product but am not opposed to profiting from to idea in anyway.
    Any thoughts?

    I invented a combination service valve wrench/crescent wrench that sounds like yours, so far...after finding out all the roadblocks and huge amount of money involved to bring it to market, I retired the idea, although I have my prototype in my tool bag and use it daily. Good luck.

    Thanks
    It's bigger than trade specific or tradesmen specific for that matter.
    Was thinking about it a little again today and it might be easy enough to make one of these myself in a crude form so I may just piss on it lol
