Nelson Glass Tools is me, Rick Nelson.
I hand build every Glass Bot® per order so my DNA is on every machine. I have my office and manufacturing facility located in the Gold Country on a ridgetop overlooking the Sacramento Valley. I retired here when I was 27.
I came up with the idea for the Glass Bot while riding a chairlift at Hevenly Valley in 2002.
It wasn't until 2004 I began design and prototyping but it wasn't until Aug., 2008 (start of the depression) that I launched the Bot.
As I approach my 10th year I have to say thank you for all those who support the Glass Bot and my efforts to change the way we do our job. The Glass Bot's success can only be attributed to those who think forward, you are a rare breed but you keep this industry moving. Thank you.
I just celebrated my 65th birthday and to all you old timers out there, I built this for you, our motto is "We Do the Work For You".
Since 1992 I have built this business into Nelson Glass Tools, formally Delta 9 Products, Nelson Marketing and now Nelson Glass Tools.
