That reminds me.I worked at a big truck repair shop in South Seattle for 24 years("big" as in Kenworths,Freightliners,etc, but some freight hauling vans too).One year on the weekend before Christmas some SOBs broke into our shop, stole a cargo van, and loaded up ten mechanics toolboxes and made off with them.I was out the most-about $17,000.They didn't steal two of them because the toolboxes were too dam big to load into the van.The shop had no insurance.We all kind of figured the stuff ended up at a swap meet in California or somewhere.Never heard anything about all our tools after that either.
