Solly Angel showed the thin scale and the cat face load cell and explained how it all worked to Dr. Heinrich Komesker of Krups. By the end of lunch, he was convinced that Krups needed the thin scale. An incomplete prototype, with an unsolved “thin-electronics” problem, was a great concern. At the beginning of May 1990, he faxed proposed license agreements to Krups and Soehnle. They were variations on template agreements available in the many how-to books on invention that he had collected by that time. The promising licensing agreements with Soehnle and Krups, and later with Counselor too, all came to naught. They dematerialized one after the other during a torturous sequence of exchanges that went on and on for months and led to exhaustion. Then, Ziggy Zee, an enterprising electronics engineer, called. He explained over the phone that some people he knew were interested in producing the scale and marketing it globally. Thus, the scale saga was not yet over.
