I have not seen any gremlin sized footprints... and I don't have a trail cam.

Dave, I don't have a younger brother; I do have an older brother who will be 23 in a month. I am almost a 100% sure he used the 9/16 ratchet wrench and punch last, possibly the adapter as well. I think he lost them when he was working on his demolition car, but he insists he did not use any of those tools. The spoon bar I may have misplaced, but it more likely fell behind the work bench into my little steel pile. I did not see it on top, it may have been rotated to the bottom. I will have to look through it.

Ryan, I figured it was close family. I remembered a brother, just got the age wrong.

I suggested this because my children, now grown adults, would take my tools and just about anything else not locked and use them, leave them outside, and even hide them. I would take measures to keep things in check, but things still come up missing. My 23 yr olds son is the last one in the nest. If I can't find it, I usually ask him. He says I dunno, and a little while later says, did you mean this? lol

Sometimes, it's me. I don't look hard enough in the place the tool should be or I'm in a hurry and don't put it back in the right spot.

Tools will jump out of the drawers sometimes. I have had tools get hung up in over full drawers and get pushed out the back when opened.
I pull out the bottom drawer a few times a year just in case one is back there playing hide and seek.

I just discovered some more stuff missing! When I was putting the coil onto my compressor I could not find my 3/8 ratchet or my good 3/8 socket set! When looking for them, I noticed the gremlins brought back my adapter. Not much help without my ratchet though!

Sounds like a friend is messing with your mind. Hide one tool until it is noticed missing, then switch it with another. Might be a neighbor borrrowing from a well stocked tool box and forgetting to bring back right away.

Did the gremlins leave a tractor close by to? My lost tools usually show at the last place I used them, unless my son gets them. Then I find them with the mower.
