I still think the Gremlin is the problem at my place. Anyone have a Gremlin trap?


I don't know about the trap, but if you come up with one, I bet some craftsman tools would work for excellent bait!

The brand doesn't matter with gremlins Ryan...it just has to be whatever tool you need at the moment you set the trap :bigrofl:

I bet they would take just about any tool, but they seem to take a specific liking to my snap-on and craftsman stuff!

I have an excuse! "Dottie dun' it"!!!



Ya, I've done those kind of things all too often, that is why my worst time of it was trying to adjust an idle screw on an old Toro. Got the screwdriver in hand the phone rings, get done with that no screwdriver??? oh heck go back in the shop get another back to the Toro, phone rings again....where is that screwdriver anyway? Crap I need this done, back in shop grab the last one that I have that will reach in to where I need it, ya the dag-um phone rings again...Now I've about had it were the HE"double tooth picks" are these screwdrivers going !!! I see the wife pulling in and I know she'll want help with the groceries, around the house I go to help and what do I find? The two black labs have my screwdrivers in there box on the other-side of the house !!! So it wasn't Dottie it was Kitty and Kandy...Arrgghhh!
All the other times it just me loosing stuff....

Brian, it does me so well to hear you misplace things too.......I've been thinking I did that because of "Old Age" but now I know I'm somewhat normal after reading this. Thanks for saving me. You probably didn't really loose your mind as it probably just wondered off.

I have done that! I rearranged the garage LAST FALL. I moved the toolbox so it was easier to get to and not so far away. Now it is right next to the work bench and not alongside the back wall where it used to be. About once a week I go to get a tool and walk right past the toolbox and go to the spot where the tool box used to be, only to be confused for a quick second when I see a 55 gallon drum sitting there. :bigrofl:


That's why the only tool box I have is a small one one I carry a few common tools in when I get talked into going to someone's home to work on something. Other than that they are hanging on the wall or in a wall hanging storage unit.

Oh my, that is organized. The tool hiders don't have a chance with that tool bench. I try to keep my tools elevated to lower the risk of them disappearing. Last week I found my son digging in the garden with wrenches and screwdrivers, I sure hope he didn't bury any. Usually I find small lost tools next to the washer, where my wife puts them after finding them in the forgotten pocket.

I spent 45 minutes of my workday looking for my "Waldo", a star bit screwdriver. I had it, never got the chance to use it before I lost it. Finally found it next to the sink where I was getting a tall glass of water earlier.

Must be the heat, yeah, thats it... The heat.

WOW ! that is a sweet looking set up. I can visualize that in my shop I just never seem to get the projects cleared out enough to get benches built along the wall. I did get airlines around the whole shop and then an electrical storm took out my 220 line, then warm weather started the yard work and then hay season and then...ya, some day I'll get my benches in I just hope I'm still physically able to use them...

I used to lose dozens of pencils when doing carpentry. So I fixed that with one those retractable lanyards that clip on your shirt. Just let go of the pencil and it stays right there. Then I lost the lanyard.

I was using magic markers to mark the cut when installing the steel roof on my shop. I was constantly losing the little caps and then they dry out.-Problem solved. Yep another lanyard clipped to the cap and hung round my neck. Worked great. Finally done and headed to the shower and HEY heres my lanyard and cap rig under my tee shirt. You guessed it. NO PEN
