This is number eleven in our ongoing series of April 1st products. If you're interested in having a look at the previous ten, just search for "AFD" using the Search function above. While the Lee Valley Precision Story Tape is the only product that's actually available for purchase, each of the products depicted have actually been manufactured by Veritas®. Not only do they exist, they function exactly as we say: the tool belt really holds more than 500 pounds, the Gang Saw mechanism really functions as shown, and the Spider Vise actually works. That's part of the fun – the tools have to be credible, and to be credible they have to work.
Have a happy April 1st!
