Liked the laser accessory. I suppose it will come with laser sharp instructions on how to finetune its precision.

Unfortunately the demand was so big that when I clicked, it said the one-time tool was sold out. Big Grin

It's possible the development folks were too busy again this year to come up with a new April 1st tool, as they were last year.  I hope we see a return - LV's creativity is always a kick.

Some of the years past 4/1 tools were absolutely amazing, and probably a treat to try and machine (like the, was it 12 marking gauge in one?)

Rob and the entire LV culture is part of why they'd be one of my "top places to work" Smile
