Break in
« on: March 01, 2014, 11:07:21 AM »
Hi All
Had my garage broken into last night some low life decided to help themselves to some of my tools, mainly mics & verniers,  but also took my compressor, associated pipework, and regulator plus an 18v Macallister drill. to add insult to injury along with the compressor they took my first project, a double acting oscillating engine that was still connected to the airline. I can replace the tooling but the engine is a different matter, they were selective in what they were stealing so obviously knew about my set up plus probability of nicking to order.

Would appreciate it if you could all keep an eye open for my engine, that means the most to me, I live in the Teesside area, if anyone offers you this engine would appreciate you notifying me via pm. Police have all details, have att. pics of engine.



Always look on the bright side of life, & remember.. KISS..' Keep It Simple Stupid'

So very sorry to hear that George.

Hope you get your engine back. At the very least!

That's unfortunate.  Guy broke into my shed and stole my compressors and a deep cycle battery for my boat.  Could have been worse, but it still makes me mad.
