  • Good to know Maybe

    I don't know how true this is. I have called several sources with no response. But it sounds good.

    PIN NUMBER REVERSAL (GOOD TO KNOW)
    If you should ever be forced by a robber to withdraw money from
    an ATM machine, you can notify the police by entering your Pin # in reverse.
    For example if your pin number is 1234 then you would put in 4321. The ATM recognizes
    that your pin number is backwards from the ATM card you placed in the machine.
    The machine will still give you the money you requested, but unknown to the robber,
    the police will be immediately dispatched to help you.
    This information was recently broadcasted on TV and it states that it is seldom used
    because people don't know it exists.
    Please pass this along to everyone possible.

    Please forgive me if I have offended anyone.!!

    That sounds like great information. Can you find out if it's really true?
    Then again, do you rob someone in Michigan with the risk of our conceil and carry law?
    Of course...why rob someone in Michigan regardless...we are all broke and nobody has a job.
    Perhaps I need to verify this information for when I'm in Ohio where they do have jobs.

      It's a myth...but one based in truth:

      The condensed version is this: The technology exists to do this, but it hasn't been implemented yet.

        Afraid I have to agree with Bob. After more research I found this.

        I got back as soon as I could to delete the message but I decided to put the link on here in case someone finds themself in that predicament. Sorry for the wrong info but shortly it should be true.

          Since I refuse to subscribe till they do something about the patterns in the pull out. They even made the DVD tough to print patterns.

          What I do is look at the index of the book on scrollsawer.com and if see something I might want to cut I go to Walmart and check out the book. If I like...

          Absolutely everyone here has made valid points. That's part of what I've liked about this group.....different view points and different ideas. And we respect the diversity. You people rock!

          I too miss Bob Duncan. I do not think anyone from FC has taken over that role at least on this forum. If they have I am not sure who. Like Betty, I owe a lot to FC and this forum. If it was not for them and this forum I would have probably turned my saw into a boat anchor years ago. Oh how I looked...

          Yes I would sand all around the hand and feet to give it some depth.

          Since I sell 90% of what I make, the other 10% goes to family and for gifts, I can honestly say without this magazine and creative woodworks, I would have no business. The first issue hooked me, I went to the open house met Gary browning, Kathy Wise, Bob Duncan and the staff and I even think I remember...
