So, ALL of my tools were stolen along with the truck that was holding them. Never thought I'd be a victim like this but no one does until it happens to you. I had every tool. Now I have none. No hex drivers, spanners, ball link drivers, ball link pliers, pitch gage, JIS screwdriver set, ruler, glow plug wrench, c-clip pliers, etc. Easily over $300 worth of stuff.

Anyway - that's not supposed to be the point of my post. My point is, where is everyone getting tools these days? I haven't had to shop for tools in a decade.

Clearly I need to find a good source to resupply. And of course I am looking for quality tools for next to no money. LOL.

Ouch. Sorry to hear that.

Start shopping at amainhobbies.com. They probably have everything you need to re-stock in several different versions/combos/price points.

I had a rear end accident where a semi hit me at 55 mph my heli tool box was in the back of my truck along with several helis. Amazingly The helis suffered no damage but my tool box got scattered all over I5 near the Tacoma Dome. The State patrol wouldn't let me get my stuff . I sat there watching cars grind my heli tools into the asphalt....everything.
I too had to replenish my tools,I know your pain.
Make a list of what you need , I may have a few things I can send you. Let me know.

I am so sorry to hear this. Is there any chance you'll get the truck back at least?

I left my tool box at the flying field last dec, just a mistake, but of course it was gone when I went back
And I am Still working on replacing what was "lost"

Which is worse, ignorance or apathy? I don't know and I don't care!
