In a futile effort I stopped by the 3 closest pawn shops. Of the tools there, none were mine, but I did notice ALL the serial numbers were removed.

Shocking news, ain't it ??

On a good note, HD has this impact / driver set on sale. I bought two to get two charges and the extra batteries along with an additional impact driver. I still have one of the old drivers so I can sell the two new ones.

If you want the soft sided bag with the same tools its $30 more. To buy just the impact + 2 batteries + charger is $200. With this combo deal I get a shiny new spare driver to sell.

I managed to find an old milwaukee sawzall in the classic metal case on ebay for $60 shipping included. I'll put my spare porter cable saw in there and sell off the beat up POS that they send with the metal case.

Thinking about never replacing the Crain undercut saw since I now have the multi tool.

The new Bosch laser is on its way to replace the old Dewalt 90ยบ only floor square laser.

I use to have a motion detector that had a remote buzzer that would go off. The sensor could be put in the trailer, no worries about the wind or moving tree branch setting it off. Seems like it was about 30 bucks or so.

I went to a pawn shop a while back and they said they won't take any tools unless the serial number was on it. They didn't want any hot tools.

Sorry about the loss. I think it takes less balls to break into a vacant trailer then a vehicle parked in front of your home.

As for the camera I can recommend going to one of the spy product sites on the net and getting a hidden camera..they disquise them in so many ways thieves ..or you and I won't even know they are ther. also they work with SD cards that save the data with time stamp. No worries about loops or anything coz you can save alot of data on a SD card and the camera only turn on when they detect motion..then turn back off.
they can look like smoke alarms,outlets,light fixtures,pin hole cams..just about anything..

Sorry about your loss Paul! We all hate thieves.

I'd rather have a camera that can be seen so it can deter thieves, more than just help you find them.

Seems they were back for a second visit as the new locks were tampered with but not defeated.

I spent the day installing 3 of the 4 new security cameras.

Paul, what security system did you end up getting?

A digital 4 camera wireless system from Amazon. CAM0938-M $220.00

The cameras still take 110v, but that was pretty easy in my case.

I have it set to show live feed 24/7 with motion detected recording. It will overwrite the memory as it goes.

The control panel / monitor can be hooked to a TV or computer, left plugged in by itself, or carted around on battery power (think nightstand)

Two cameras in the rear driveway, one at the front door (handy cause the doorbell has been broken for 11 years) and one inside the garage. The signal strength meter shows excellent.

After owning it for a few hours I'm happy so far.

Try this link

They make them with more cameras and larger memory, but I don't need a terabyte of storage

I think a motion sensor tied up to a recording of a big-assed dog barking might be another link in the security.....

Yeah, that link works, Paul. But I think I'm really looking for something I can look at on my computer.

Friend has such a hook-up for his boat at a distant marina. Not sure exactly how it works, but if you know the url you can just call it up and watch in real time. I'm sure it records, too, but I don't know how much.

Thing I liked about your description is being able to look at more than one place.

This one isn't wifi by itself. I'm sure they make those also

This one is limited to 100m, but more like 100 feet in real life with a house in the way.

After a little research, there are lots of WIFI cameras, some with pan, tilt and zoom which can be tied to your cell phone.
