Brown, Christopher A.
The goal of this project was to design, manufacture, and test a functional tool used to install alpine ski racing poles into the snow to expedite and facilitate the ski racing course setting process. Manual gate wrenches with no moving parts are durable and easily purchasable, but are time consuming and tedious. Our final product was a manually operated, ratcheting, alpine slalom pole wrench with forward, neutral, and reverse capabilities that has been designed, constructed, and successfully tested.
