Inventor, engineer and longtime General Tools & Instruments consultant Burt Weinstein lost his battle with cancer at the age of 87. 

Weinstein and his partner, Richard (Dick) Deaton, founded Simp'l Products in 1989 with the goal of inventing products that would streamline woodworking joinery for both professionals and novices at an affordable price. General Tools purchased the company in 2006 and hired Weinstein as a consultant.
