Popular Woodworking Magazine issue 100

Does anyone have this issue? I'm looking for the plans for the Exploding Bank in the January 1998 issue. The back issue is no longer available from Popular Woodworking. I'll buy the issue if you like.
Thanks, Dave

Don't have the issue requested but do remember the bank. Reaction were funny. Made one and a few of the "older kids" at work wanted their own. So I built a few more.
Real easy to build. Four sides, mitered corners, which fit into routed slots in top and bottom pieces. Inside just large enough to hold standard size mouse trap. Three screws were then partially inserted into three of the walls so that when trap goes off, bail wire strikes screws sending parts all over. Cut slot in top piece in such a way that when coin drops, it hits trap release (normally bait holder). Finish it anyway you want. Good use for scraps.
WOULDN'T recommend this for kids as the trap has to be set and fingers could be caught. Ouch, happened to me several times.
Have fun,
Jack

Please stop unnecessarily "protecting" kids. How else will they learn?
A guy on another newsgroup has this sig. Try to grasp it.

Protecting children from folly and creating a "toy" that is almost guaranteed to hurt them are two different things, IMHO. I would need to know what age "kid" we were talking about.

I made an exploding outhouse using a mouse trap. Is this the type of thing you're after?

Hi Dennis,
Sorry for the delay. A copy would be great. I am in Canada so I will gladly return you the cost. I'll email my address assuming it's the one on the group.
Thanks to all that responded as well.
Thanks Dave
