Event Details


The Manufacturing Forum will consist of a Panel of Experts in the field of inventions.

Terry Burton – Aeronautical Engineer

Terry has over 20 years of aeronautical engineering experience. He graduated from the University of New South Wales in 1996 with a Bachelor of Aerospace Engineering. For his thesis he designed, manufactured and tested the world’s smallest gas turbine engine that delivered 0.5kg of thrust, receiving the World Record from the Guinness Book of Records in 1996. Terry worked for Boeing/Hawker de Havilland Sydney from 1996 to 2008 as an Aerospace Structural/Repair Engineer with an 18 months secondment at Boeing Seattle USA as a Mass Properties Engineer. Since late 2008 Terry has been working full time under the business name Terence Jets to develop the SJ1672A – a unique, innovative, small, high performance sport/aerobatic jet aircraft.


The invention is a small, very high performance sport/aerobatic jet aircraft that has a unique shape/configuration. The aircraft is designated the SJ1672A, with SJ standing for SuperJet which reflects the aircraft’s performance capabilities, 1672 reflecting Terry’s birthdate and A representing the first version of the aircraft. It has similar flying capabilities to a modern military jet fighter while being substantially less complex due to its small size, simplified aircraft structure, basic systems architecture and significantly reduced number of systems. The SJ1672A has been designed using conventional aerospace design methods and proven technologies.



David Ashard – Serial Inventor 

Since 2009 David has been working on many innovations mostly to do with safety, especially aimed towards children, there is his safety rash vest, called the EBBS an electronic life jacket, the RippSaver which is a rash vest with a tubular bladder that a person can wear when either learning to swim or swimming in the ocean etc, if the person gets into trouble when swimming in the ocean the RippSaver will keep them afloat until they are rescued. Another of David’s innovations is a new Bee Smoker which eliminates the
need for using the cumbersome and dangerous bee smoker that is currently


David’s new innovation is also the invention that may put David onto the world stage, David has developed some new technology called NeomSafe™. This technology has many different applications, one of those applications being a way of making button batteries 100% safe, Button Batteries are seriously dangerous especially if a little child ingests one, if David’s technology is utilised within a button battery it makes the said Button Battery 100% totally safe, therefore reducing the many serious complications that are currently occurring by children swallowing button batteries.



Anthony Attard – Owner of Adjust A Bucket 

Anthony has over 25 years in the building and construction industry and wears many
hats. He runs a successful Facility Maintenance & Management company, is a celebrity manager and enjoys creating and designing. After making the move to acreage in
Sydney’s north west, Anthony purchased an excavator and found he was unable to
purchase a grab attachment to help clear the property. Anthony then went on to design
an attachment himself to fit his excavator.


Anthony is a Jack of all Trades, has an engineer’s background and in a brainstorm moment, started to engineer and design the very first fully adjustable machinery attachment. This is the first for the market with a multipurpose design for sieves, grabs, rippers and buckets, to fit any machine. Anthony then progressed to redesign a 2 in 1 sieve bucket with a mud bucket liner. This also being a first of its kind. These attachments have revolutionized the construction industry. Named ‘Adjustabucket’, users are able to adjust the attachments ear width, change pin sizes and pin spacers to fit attachments to any earthmoving machinery types and sizes. The invention has fully adjustable ears that are fitted to all types of excavator and machinery attachments, so one attachment will suit multiple machines. This will cut back on haulage costs. This also reduces the number of attachments an operator needs, so it is very cost effective and space saving.



Darin Leatherby – owner of Holy Smoke Alarms

Five years ago, a workplace accident had left Darin Leatherby bedridden, unable to work, and in a lot of debt. He had no idea that an innovative idea that had come to him in a light bulb moment as he stared up at the bedroom ceiling would turn his world around.


Whilst he was at home, the smoke alarm started beeping, which posed a problem as he could not walk. That is when he invented a novel way of mounting a smoke alarm system to the ceiling and a method to change the battery without the need for a ladder, chair or screws. His very soon to be released holy Smoke Alarm kits include a photoelectric smoke alarm – the only type recommended by Australian fire brigades – a magnetic adhesive plate and a universal vacuum adaptor. A magnetic plate is attached to the underside of the alarm and a matching adhesive plate is glued to the ceiling using the suction of a vacuum. The alarm is held in place by the magnets. So simple to install, Mr Leatherby uploaded a YouTube video of his six and eight-year-old children mounting the alarm.


Mr Leatherby took the concept he’d dreamed up, patented it around the world and turned it into a promising new business. The kits are expected to retail for around $100 for a pack of three alarms. The World Intellectual Property Organisation deemed the product innovative and certainly one of a kind.
