Actually my name is Bill Launius and I am from the St. Louis, Mo. area. I was reaquainted with pinewood derby because of my son and scouting 3 years ago which lead me to the creation and patenting of the Pro Tool Line : Pro Hub Tool, Pro Body Tool, Pro Axle Press, Pro Wheel Shaver 2 & XT, Pro Wheel Mandrel, Pro Hub Shaver, Pro Bore Polisher & Pro Dowel Tool.
My background is marketing, distribution & manufacturing in the automotive aftermarket so getting my product to market is what I do. This has allowed me to work with many great people in the P.W.D. & hobby world and helped me get my product to racers everywhere.
We have deemed the Pro Tool line a sucess by both feed back and acceptance in the market place, so here we go. It is now offical, we are "The Pro Tool Line by Derby Worx" and have several exciting new things for the up-coming season, but our mission is "To build products that can be used by both parent and child to help them learn and compete at a high level"
Besides all of this PWD craziness, we are a regular family with 2 childern that play baseball, basketball and my son and I race amateur motocross.
Always feel free to drop me a line about a tool or construction concern, This stuff is a BLAST!!!!!!!!!!!!
