Buffer Bit on Shark Tank

 The BufferBit Drill Bit's slogan simply says "Re-Define Your Shine" and I believe this product may do just that. Do you know anyone that constantly has to keep their shoes or boots shined on a daily basis? I Do! In fact I can think of a few hundred thousand folks in the Military where keeping their boots spit shined is a chore no one really likes, but mandatory in Garrison. It's such a chore some soldiers even make a decent second income polishing boots on the side. Can you imagine how much more productive you'd be achieving a spit shine using a Buffer Bit powered by a drill?

The owner of the Buffer Bit is Michael Quinn, who's coming to the Shark Tank in Episode 521 with not only a Shoe Shine Drill Bit, but also an Auto Buffer Bit that makes buffing your vehicle a breeze. The BufferBit website looks a little new with only 3 Blog post's so far, but one article caught my attention and leads me to believe this product is headed for the "Big Time" here in the very near future.  Quinn has a picture hanging out with Gene Winfield and his crew, with a mention of looking forward to working together, possibly with the Chicago World of Wheels Show.

Michael Quinn also posted a picture last week at a Shark Tank Reunion with Charles Michael Yim, the entrepreneur behind the Breathometer Breathalyzer App seen earlier in Season 5. By the looks of it, both Quinn and Yim went through the Shark Tank taping for the Show at the same time, and became good friends as a result.

Perhaps the best way to learn about all the things the Buffer Bit can easily buff is to watch the BufferBit in action on the video below. Will the Sharks be interested in buffing up their portfolios with what looks like the easiest way to buff just about anything that needs polishing up?

 Hm, I wonder if Michael ever thought of designing a Dusting Bit to go along with the Buffer Bit collection. That would certainly seem like another interesting addition to his rather unique drill bit collection. One thing is for sure, if the Buffer Bit really can achieve a "true spit shine" that can pass any Military inspection, there may be a huge untapped market Michael has yet to explore.

This is just one of those innovative new products that makes you wonder "now why didn't I think of that". Depending on the type of patent(s) the Buffer Bit already has in place, this certainly has the potential to become a Very Successful Shark Tank product in record time.

  1. Sticking that on a drill might be a new idea, but there's no shortage of similar attachments for Dremels.
