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.
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
WOULDN'T recommend this for kids as the trap has to be set and fingers could
be caught. Ouch, happened to me several times.
Please stop unnecessarily "protecting" kids. How else will they learn?
A guy on another newsgroup has this sig. Try to grasp it.
"The ultimate result of shielding men from the effects of
folly is to fill the world with fools.
--Herbert Spencer, English Philosopher (1820-1903)"

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.
