So close but yet so clueless, thanks for the help. Any clues for the easy so I don't give it away like I did for the hard?

You have to change the numbers to letters, but not in the usual way.

OK, that's not really helping. Can you be a little less vague please?

For the easy
There are two components to this puzzle
finding the right letters to use, and putting them in the right order...
For the letters REALLY REALLY SALTY
Spoiler (click to reveal)
spell out the numbers, one, three.... then
Spoiler (click to reveal)
take the initial letters

For the orderSALTY
Spoiler (click to reveal)
order the letters by the length of the spelled number...
Spoiler (click to reveal)
i.e. one, nine...

or you could just
Spoiler (click to reveal)
use an anagram solver which I did before I understood the elegance of the puzzle


Don't forget the "C" that was given to you in the first place...

Leadfoot, are you out there? Do you have any salt for the patent puzzle? Are you supposed to use w rod from the patent then apply Tanga #'s and look up a new patent with those numbers. Seems like there's so many possibilites. The patent's owner, etc.

With you there. I've got all the patents up in separate tabs in my browser. Can't see anything to do with them though.

Nope, no luck. The only thing that makes any sense to me would be the first letters of the names of the items patented. But that gives "combiver". No help there. Googling that gives some drug that's part of the AIDS cocktail. Again, no help that I can see.

Ha! I had combiver (also comboder) and put in "combiner" for the hell of it. There 8 patents but the patent #'s themselves are only 7 #'s long so I'm wondering if the answer is, indeed, a number. I wish there was more salt over at Tanga. I have SUCKED yesterday and today.

Each of your first two guesses were off by just one letter.

Right. I gave up and clicked the "I give up, show me the answer" button.

The word is combover, and apparently there's a patent for a method of performing combovers. That patent number is the answer.

No, I don't believe it either.

I'm having trouble with a few on the hard one. In particular, the Bug one, the Santino one, and the U-boat one.

I have the rest and think I may know what you need to do.

EDIT: Nevermind...got enough other clues to solve it.
