Lee Valley Does It Again

I am really surprised that no one posted the annual tool release from Lee Valley yesterday. In case you missed it, they introduced their new Veritas Caliper Marking Gauge, a super marking gauge that is your next must-have tool. Make sure you watch the video.

For those new to these shenanigans, Lee Valley releases a new and better tool every year on April Fool's Day, just plausible enough to be convincing. Well, some are more than convincing, and actually ended up becoming products in their own right, like their blank story tape (tape measure without markings - mark it yourself!). If you put the term "AFD" (April Fool's Day) in their search box, you can find all their previous releases.

While you are at it, check out their catalogs and newletters page. The cover of the Spring 2017 issue is graced by some very unusual stringed instruments.
