Generally good advice Hugh but I bet you have never worked in a factory of 200+employees!
There every bugger above the shop floor thinks they have a divine right to borrow your kit and they NEVER bring it back.
Of course, I kept my tiny workshop locked when away from it but they still came a wheedlin' and a theivin' while I was at my bench!
