    what: GTT phantom w/ "jseel" engraved on the bottom. it was a 2 stud with kinda frayed hoses and a sheath around the hoses (which could obviously be taken off), along with a minor burner.
    how: someone kicked in the basement door where my shop was (since moved), cut the lines to both torches, took all finished work out of the kiln, and left.


    PLEASE return my baby, reward if returned. Thanx.

    My Nortel SSQ was stolen last night here in Calgary. It is one of the older ones, a brass body with light blue paint.

    hey man, glad that you got your torch back and it happened so quick...
    i also hope that you didn't suffer much other damage as a result of this...
    i know how thieves can just tear shit up for no reason...

    reading this makes me so "F'n" paranoid about my shop
    that, i think i will have to go on prozack...

    my renter just moved out, owing me $380...
    and the little shit head was fired from his job for
    a fight that he started... that means that the cops
    will be coming to my house, looking for his ass...
    they will probably have a warrant in hand to search
    for him sense, it is a felony to fight in this state if,
    the other person has to see a doctor because of it...



    i think i need a big dog to give my back yard tooo...

    Who are you calling a theif? They were just borrowing it!
    My roommate took two of his pitbulls with him the night before to confront a houseful of local crackheads about it. Next day, it got returned.

    The population has more than doubled in the past twenty years with the oil boom, and the paper has 8 pages of ads for jobs, and a half page of rentals. Not mellow at all, but I am having fun.

    P.S. 2 keg party going on right now at my house.

    I know these stories rarely turn out well, so I thought I'd share an update.

    On the previous page there's a story about this clownshoe named Wes who jacked my partners whole shop - kiln, torches, tanks, tools, raw glass, finished pieces... the works. My partner caught him shortly after at one of the other shops in town trying to sell some of the stuff, but let him get away (man I wish I'd been there). Well we recently heard through the grapevine that he was back in Hot Springs, and a few calls and emails led us to the guy he's been working for. He had told some bullshit story about how he got all this stuff from a court decision (ya right), but once the real deal was explained and he was confronted with the truth, he admitted to it.

    Apparently after leaving Texas he went to Cali for awhile and lost most of the finished pieces getting robbed at gunpoint (ironically funny, if true), and the raw glass is long gone, but most of the gear is accounted for. So the shop owner there got it all boxed up and after sending him the money for shipping, he mailed it all back. UPS dropped it off today, so despite some losses it all worked out ok. Shortly after finding out about this his new boss caught Wes selling an under-the -table custom piece, and said thats enough for me I'm not trusting this guy any further either... so beware, he's back out there somewhere looking for his next place to work.. I mean rip off.
