How many times have you been looking for a tool or a part that you know you have and are never able to find it? It happens all the time to all of us. Today I was doing some A/C work on a pick up for a friend and installed a new expansion valve. I have a roll of the gooey black A/C insulating tape that you wrap it in to insulate it. I looked for thirty minutes to no avail. I finally gave up and went to the parts store and bought another roll of it. I came back home and cut off a piece of the tape and wraped the expansion valve and finished my job. I walked back into the shop and sat down in a chair and leaned back to relax for a few minutes and lo and behold I was staring straight at the roll of tape I was looking for. It was sitting in the clearly marked box on a 2 X 4 stringer about seven feet up the wall.

I've heard that the little green tool monsters do that just to be funny!

I've also heard that when anything is designated as a shop supply, it acquires the ability to cloak itself. LOL

I have the same problem, I can hide all kinds of stuff from myself, been doing it for years now. I have a new problem though, I have help moving stuff and hiding it. The two year old boy loves to take off with tools and parts and drops them where-ever.  I was working on the brakes of my pick-up and he took off with the lug nuts, I didn't really notice what he had at the time. I was happy that he was not in a drain pan of oil or something worse. I heard the sound of something sliding down a pipe or tube with a metalic"clank" at the end.  I look and he is dropping all the lugnuts into the handle pipe of the floor jack.

Hell, I don't even worry about little stuff like that... Its when you tearing the shop apart looking for some tool that you are carrying in your hand or pocket that I start to worry about old age.:crying:

A friend of mine who enjoys a beer while tinkering in the garage got so frustrated about setting the beer down and not being able to find it that he bought a key chain that he slips over the neck of the bottle, when he whistles, it whistles back to him.

Yes, it seems we all have this problem. Yesterday, I went to the grocery store to pick up a couple of items and when I returned home I got the sack out of the car and started to looking for my purse, when I didn't find it in the car I started to panic thinking I left it at the grocery store when mu mother reminded me I had it slung across my left shoulder where I always carry it. Sort of like looking for your glasses when you have them on.

We all have our favorite tools that we like better than others that are the same size. One such tool is a 1/2 X 9/16 box wrench I have had for years. Any time I need one I will always reach for that one. Well, it has been missing for a couple of months now and I had thought that someone borrowed it and for got to return it. Today I got my N truck out of the garage to move a trailer from around back to the front and bingo, there was my wrench I had been missing for the past two months. It is now very clear where it went, I had put it in the truck one day when I was pulling the cattle trailer for the movie. I had used it to adjust the slack adjusters. one more of lifes mysteries solved.

It is the same with workshop chemicals! My father did a job on a vehicle which required silicon spray - he looked the shop high and low looking for the can.... turns out it was sitting in the engine bay of the car he was working on!
