Sorry to hear about the theft of mill :(.
Alberta Wolf.
The mill wasnít actually stolen (at least not yet ;)) thatís just how I titled the post to get you all to read it. Sorry if it mislead you.
Thank you everyone for your ideas and suggestions. I really like the removable tongue and hitch idea ??? but I sure donít think my mill is built that way. Now you guys have got me wondering if Iím just that unobservant ::) ::)? Iím going to feel pretty silly for asking these questions if it does.

I use a megahitchlock.  The current one is at least 2 revisions past the first one I bought.  So they seem to always be looking to improve it.
Anything someone can design, I can sure figure out how to fix!
If I say it\\\\\\\'s going to take so long, multiply that by at least 3!

Your safe as I made the removable tongue.  I would guess most fabrication shops could make the same mod in four or less hours.  Might be better than some of these high priced gadgets that can be defeated.

I do have a second line of defense. I remove a wheel than put a locking lug nut on the stud so another wheel cannot be installed.  The locking lug nut fits on a custom adapter so the lug cannot be broken or sawed through.

Third line of defense is leaving logs on the mill as MM showed in his pictures.

Brad, 
I like that lock coupler. Thanks for the suggestion.

You made Google with that head line.  It showed up on my phone.  
My mill came with a removable hitch, which is stored elsewhere.  I also for a different reason installed a disconnect switch, which a fellow could hide.  Banjo
