welcome, sorry to hear about the jerks taking your stuff.
ya need one of them little yappy dog's. they make great alarms, got realy good hearing. that way you know they are there and you can chose the best way to deal with them. that is if they stay, most take off when the little yappers go off. a motion light goes a long way to stop them also. but you have quite a prize there in that trailor. i suspect they would see it werth a little extra risk.
any how bummer on the missing stuff but welcome aboard.
we have a few trailor makers here. if ya post the type ya need plans to you may well get just what ya need.thanks for the help
hope i helped
feel free to shoot me an e-mail direct i have time to chat. email@example.com
summer is here, plant a tree. if you don't have space or time to plant one sponsor some one else to plant one for you. a tree is an investment in our planet, help it out.

That just plain sucks. I hate thieves. I am not sure if this has been posted earlier,but contact your local welding supply companys and tell them about your misfortune and provide serial #'s for your equipment. You never know if someone has a problem with it down the road they may take it them to have serviced. We frequently get calls from customers that have equipment stolen and we keep the model and S/N posted in our service department for this purpose. We have been able to recover machines on a couple of instances.
I hope I'm not being to critical here, but I noticed in the photo you have your acetylene cylinder mounted horizontally. Thats a big no-no. Acetylene cylinders should be stored, transported and used in the upright position to prevent acetone from being withdrawn from the cylinder. Sorry I had to say it. I teach Oxy/Acety safety and am trained to spot things like this. Again sorry.Rich Ferguson

Thanks everyone for your replies, and your thoughts. I have already called all the welding shops around and let them know the ser#s. The trailer was/is a 12'X6' "Big Tex". I am also sure that it is long gone now. the picture is from a bad angle, the bottles are at about a 60 degree slant, however, I have been told I need to stand the Acety upright, thanks for the advice. The sad part is my truck was right there next to it and I have Disabled Veteran plates on it!! I will drop you a line fun4now about some plans.
