Aldi special buys. Cordless angle grinder just under £50 including battery.


The downside of course is the small battery, so you probably could only steal one before recharging. Cry

Better 5 minutes late in this world than years early in the next.

I am thinking of installing  a tracking device now, theft round here has got so bad
I keep a Garden fork behind the door, and a cosh
having lost two machines I favour the Russian maxim shoot first and ask questions later
oh and a nice Subaru estate car, plus my tax disc , and quite a few tools

and we have a dog that is very bitey


oddly the car theft and the 2 motorcycle thefts were tied into the council estate behind my house, the copper said the lazy little ***** dont like to walk too far, we recovered one motorcycle after a mate spotted it, as usual all the gobsh*tes turned up and tried to intimidate us, worse than pikeys
a mate lost his motorcycle not far from me, first thing he does after ringing the police is to hire a company who fly drones, they overflew a large area early in the morning much faster than we could cover on foot, only to find one workshy individual had  lots of motorcycles in various states of repair in his garden, rather than contact the rozzers I assisted my friend and we entered the insecure garage to find his ninja parked there, and a few other bikes, then I made a phone call, while he paid a visit to the house

Sorry to inform that breaking most locks takes a few minutes, tops, and everybody can learn how on youtube
Also be aware that gps jammers are even cheaper than angle grinders.

That wasn't fun.

I can get a lock off very fast but I won't explain how. I learnt from a locksmith. The ignition is never very complicated neither.

The point of an obvious lock, or better multiple locks, is a deterrent and to slow the gamins down.
Also multiple locked gates/doors into the property.

A dog is the best burglar alarm. They bark, burglar goes somewhere else. Seriously, houses with dogs don't get burgled.

Ah, the screaming in the night, that'll be next door's burglar discovering that our doggie can jump the back fence, airedales are like that. They've got a funny sense of humour too, like testing how fast the burglar can run up the street.

Our last dog was a wolfhound GSD cross. Big is an understatement, but at the same time a gentle giant.
We have a stable door on our front porch, and when salesmen called, my daughter used to creep out and open the top half. Dog would stand up and look over the door front feet on the top.

Never had problems with them going away.

We have a very barky dog and a very bitey wife, between them they keep most unwelcome (and indeed some welcome) visitors away...Wink

Quite a few years ago, my parents had a three day break in our capital city … Leaving their house unoccupied … Next doors little barky, yappy, narky, thing, used to make a noise to raise the dead whenever you went out to the bin, shed, garden, or just outside the back or front door … It didn't make any noise however, on the night their unoccupied house, ( the one I grew up in), I had to deal with the aftermath ... Not pleasant … The Police reckoned the noisy little shi£%ag was thrown a tasty morsel, sausage etc, laced with a narcotic substance … A dog is not an insurmountable obstacle to those determined … Tony

I was hoping the fact its a Guzzi would put them off !!!
a friend had a tracker fitted to his motorcycle, if you moved the machine it sent him a text
his bike was nicked while on Holiday in Belgium, his phone bleeped to warn him but it was in the Hotel car park under ground,so signalled when above ground  the local police got involved and recovered his bike and were less than gentle with the criminals,
