I have a sudden need for a set of common keyed padlocks:-(
The previous set did not withstand bolt croppers and I wonder if the

Also some protection for the hinge pin in the hasp, maybe a bit of
That's right I'm not certified for hot works but I had also had to
similarly sign off not to use 240V power tools, so when he asked me to
quickly cut a link out of the chain he had to give me an exemption for
power tools or gas axe, two stroke generator was easiest and cheapest
to deploy with 5" angle grinder.
He was an ex rsm with one helluva bark but one of the nicer types I've

Most I would guess. If you make your living from opportunist crime you
still need part time work to give the opportunity to case for future
opportunities. These people are constantly on the lookout and
