That movie scared the crap outta me!Is it safe?
Is it safe?
I know a guy that cracks bank safes, and other things like security boxes. Not only would he loose his license for divulging how they work, but he would be looking at jail time. I know because I asked.
One of the best guitarists I know...
You can get prison time just for having a commercial cutting torch without a license as it's considered a burglary tool if you don't.
My dad had one and a license; a friend asked to borrow it. When I asked for it back he lied and said he gave it to me already.
I told my dad who called the cops. My "friend" had actually used it to commit robbery and him and his uncle who he lived with went to prison and the cops AND THE FBI never did give back the torch because it was a violation of the license to loan it.
you can buy a cutting torch in california...They sure do things differently in CA. No such laws against having such things around here, even lockpicking sets are legal to carry in this State. It isn't the tool that makes things illegal, it is the act of using them. So, as long as you do not cross the law in how he use them, no problem.
Safe cracking is similar to picking locks in that you have to feel for the resistence pins. As you rotate the dial, you feel the resistence points and create a graph of their locations to help you figure out the code. To be good at lock picking and safe cracking, you have to have a very good touch to feel the slight differences in tension.
I have a smaller cutting torch. This was a huge torch, could cut through inch of steel, fast. And it was 1972, perhaps the law has changed. At the time cannabis could get you 25 years in prison....you can buy a cutting torch in california...
but some of the rest of that is probably right... but, not the torch part.
