Even though there were no laws broke or patents infringed, I just wish he had shown Zane that same respect.

I'm a little confused. Reading back over this thread, I don't see any mention of anyone misappropriating any of Zane's ideas. Someone posted asking for info that would help them build a DIY version of a non-Zane 50 year old device whose patents have long since expired and whose manufacturer long since disappeared. How on earth does that hurt anyone? Sure Red Rock makes a copy (a very nice one, I should add), but that hardly gives them any moral rights to the design. They also make a (functional) knockoff of Zane's Thang. So why aren't we all jumping on RR for treading on his Zane's turf, instead of acting like RR somehow has moral rights to all the products they repop?

Personally, I subscribe to the notion that an individual is free to copy any idea, patented or not, to DIY a one-off , non-
commercial version for his own use.

Hold on, you're maligning Phil unjustly. The position control device sold by Redrock is modeled after one of two devices that were on the market, available to the public, 50 plus years ago. It's NOTHING like Zane's position control device. Zane didn't invent the position control add-on, he just invented his own version of one. Nobody stole his idea. That idea has been around a LONG time.

You are right Jon.
When I posted this morning I hadn't seen that.
I guess I'll just kind of throw my hands in the air and back out of this thread.
Let folks do as they wish.
