Leonard Lee, the founder of Lee Valley and Veritas Tools passed away recent
ly. He used to be a contributor directly and indirectly to this forum a nu
mber of years ago. There is an interesting article about him here: https:/
Last I knew, it was Robin Lee. He used to post here occasionally, last
time I remember seeing him was a couple April Fool's Days ago. They had
just "invented" a dust collector shroud for a hand plane.

I seem to remember Mr. Lee himself being asked why he didn't put Lee Valley
on the Stock Market and his answer was along these lines: why would I give
away everything I've build up to banks and institutions. If I need more m
