lost a couple of boxes during the week :mad: and damn sure they were stolen to order but hard to prove it.:censored:
anyone had some kit nicked before?

Safer to have a container on site or somewhere only you have the key to. Sad sign of the times I'm afraid.

I have often lost kit; but but a few years ago I swore up an down about theives to a crew at the last outfit i worked for when my new mixer drill went missing. 2 WEEKS later I unfolded the back seat of my Ford Escort and there it was.... and the moment i saw it i remembered when and why i'd put it there, but for the whole month previous i had no idea where it was. SO. if you are as absent minded as i can be, it's best to assume you lost it and just be paranoid about keeping them locked up.

that said, i have had things go missing, but it seems to happen less now that i am the only taper on the sites i am on.

Lost a few hand tools, sanders and blades due to my own clumsyness, incompetence or whatever you want to call it. Only important things that ever went missing was a corner roller, box, angle head and pump. Coincidence? I think not:(

post on here what they were and if you like email me with any special markings or damage only you know they had - will get my repair guy to keep an eye out for you.

We often get offered secondhand gear when they cant shift it in the pub!

Oh by the way - we trade in your old tools if anyone fancies upgrade to new gear or anyone looking to but used refurbished give me shout!
