    Sir, step away from the toolbox!
    Richard Lee, the founder of Lee Precision, passed away last month. From the company website:

    "On a personal note, my Father, the inventor of the 'Lee Loader' and more than 30 other patented reloading products recently passed away. Without Dad, I wouldn’t be here, and reloading your own ammunition would have been an expensive hobby for a wealthy few.

    Sincerely,

    John Lee
    President

    October 3, 2018"
