  • Lee Valley April Fools Joke

    For the last 15 years or so Lee Valley has come up with a tool offering on April 1st that was a sometimes not so obvious gag. Remember the hand plane shavings extractor? Best part is that they actually build a working prototype so it looks legitimate until you get into the write up. One, the story tape, actually went into production and is still sold.

    Anyone seen this year's offering? I can't find it on their site.

    Wise men talk because they have something to say,
    Fools because they have to say something.

    I wondered about this also. I didn't see one.

      Maybe they're not in a humorous mood. Its a tough year.

      If your only tool is a hammer, you tend to treat all problems as if they were nails.
