Bad Luck Strikes Hard Friday the 13th

My garage burned to the ground on January 13, 2012. My project was not in this bldg, but my Harley Davidson FLHTC was. I was in the process of doing a good old Minnesota winter rebuild on the old girl 1994 model and the fire got her. Also all of my tools, special fixtures etc. I have been both a machinist and a Harley mechanic, they are called technicians now. I had an extremely large collection of machinist tools with Gerstner Oak boxes snuggled around them. Also had a Mac 50th anniversary tool box with matching bottom roller. Of course filled to the brim with tools. Insurance man is going to wonder why would 1 person own 6- 1/2 inch wrenches, on and on. I'm sure you all get me you all most likely have the same. Snap on, Craftsman, Starrett, you name it.
All top shelf American Made tools. Even burned my compressor to a melted gob. Now I have to inventory each and every piece, photograph it and put it all on their "special" form. Some of this stuff is gone, might have been on the bench and got tossed with the burned wood.
Carpe Diem
believe in God and pray
