    If you haven't already thought about it, keep an eye on Craigslist and eBay. They might not post in local area but the next area over.

    It would help if you have some serail numbers in case you see items like the ones taken listed for sale somewhere.

    theirs the problem though old willams tools are not serial number stamped =[
  4. Don't forget to check all the area Pawn Shops, they are the first place local thieves here in MT take tools.

    I hate thieves.

    Angry Chairman, Sorry for your bad luck, hope you get all your stuff back.

    Doc Squat, "Obama doesn't help" , WTF? I just don't get the relationship between this event and the current President. Do you think the thieves are working for him, or is it because he is seen as liberal by some (middle of the road, by me) that stealing is OK. Really, just don't understand what that comment is doing in this post!

    Yea what really sucks is 9 x out of 10 its always some 1 you no are aleast been in your shop. To no what kind of set up you had and know it was worth the risk of geting caught. Random targeting is very rare. Thats why things like this forum works well you get to know some good guys or atleast you start to get a understanding about whos out there b4 u actually meet up.

    We have had many post this year on HAMB and all I can say is the thief's and crack heads are out in droves. The economy sucks and there are thousands out of work and some looking for an easy mark. Car thieves and doing it same as always but with a new twist of car jacking with guns. It really pains me to read of this crap and I am very sorry for Angry.Take the tips above and start looking at Pawn shops ,craigs list and ebay.

    Hopefully your list was provided to the Police when you filed your report.

    Tools are easy for a meth-head to convert to cash. You may also want to drop off your list of stolen goods to local pawn shops.

    Be careful about bringing politics to the table. I'm sure at this moment someone is taking a timeout in the corner for violating the no politics rule right now.

    you could post an ad in the surrounding areas that you are looking to buy hand tools and a welder and see what comes your way. Your welcome to borrow my welder if you can get here. That goes for anyone in need of a weld.

    Also check any big flea markets too . If you are within 50 miles of any place like that check it out .
    Find them and make them pay !

    I hate to keep seeing these posts where scum fu**ers continue to take our cars and tools that we all work hard to get . If you catch them , take a vice grip and clamp their fingers one at a time and twist them till the bones break ! Then they will think the next time they want to steal someone else's tools !

    I've found when I've been ripped off that it isn't the money lost, but just the rotten taste that it leaves.

    I'll be sure to post if I see anything @ Amhearst in a couple of weeks

    Another vote for watching local flea markets--and don't give up. That's how it's done around here--often over the state line. I would also circulate the serial number of the welder to local auctioneers.

    thats brite insurance doesnt even get close
    if you had tools you would understand the loss .
  25. That sucks man, if you were in Texas and caught the bastards...I know of several places we could bury them.

    I just busted a theif last night. I live in my warehouse in an industrial park and was sitting exactly where I'm sitting now, at the front door on the computer. Nothing ever goes on out here, but a car pulled up last night to the warehouse across from me, I guess he didn't see me. He was hopping over the fence and throwing stuff back over it. So I called the Sheriff and about 10 minutes later (i'm out in the country) about 15 cops showed up ranging from State Troopers, to County Sheriffs, to City Police. K-9 Unit was here. They caught him red handed stealing AC stuff, heaters, etc, and he had a big bag of weed on his floorboard. I don't really care about the neighbor because I don't really like him, but I don't like to see a criminal get away with it. Justice was served.

    I hope they catch whoever stole from you and you get your stuff back.

    you guys have prolly heard of us too, dads company was R.E. Hoerle Construction

    yeah we were insured, but we still have to some how prove that we actually had the tools, seriously some crack head had to do it cuz everything he took was at eye level, this is a major blow everything that we use the most is gone, hundreds of tools

    poof gone

    Any special markings on the tools for guy in that area to be on the lookout for? Engraved initials, X# of grinder marks in specific spots or ??

    the main thing is that they were J.H. Williams Tools that are a specialty division of snap on, we are the only people in the whole area that have them
