    [QUOTE=J Miller;5674094]Oh yeah, in Phoenix, AZ it was called "Operation Identification". Just call the Phx PD at 602-262-6151 (still a current Phx PD non emergency number) and they'd loan you an engraver.
    I had my own engraver and put my drivers license number; D-111X1X all over my tools. They got stolen and I've never seen a one.

    From Lynnie:
    AND for several years the AZ drivers license number was your social security number! My. Dad goes to a lot of yard sales and buys tools...I'll tell him to keep an eye out for yours! Lol

    IF he ever runs across any tools with that sequence of numbers PM me and I'll give you the entire DL #. The X's are substitutes for the actual numbers.

    I bet that one doesn't have Keith Fowler's name engraved on it...

    I bet he did it himself and he used a straight pin to do the deed. High school girls wrote stuff in nail polish, lipstick, and ink pen on the bathroom walls. They rarely carved.

    yeah - I even had one... But BOYS didn't take Home Ec until a few years later - this Keith Fowler I found is too old to have been in the class. BUT what if they boys snuck into the room and carved their names on the sewing machines? NAH take another look at the O in Fowler. Looks almost like a heart to me.

    A couple years ago rumors were circulating in my wife's family that one of her brothers was dead. Nobody had heard from him in a very long time. Yet nobody wanted to call him. Even my wife was tongue tied. So I called the BIL and said: "Is this XXXXX? He said tentatively .... yes. Then I told him who I was and asked , did you know you're family thinks your dead? He sputtered and then started laughing. He was just living his live and not giving the family any extra thoughts.

    Contact him. I'll bet he gets a chuckle out it.

    Joe, maybe you should call the guy for me.
    I was hoping Mrs. Fowler was a QB member and would come forward.
    Alas if she is a QB member she is keeping her mouth shut right tight.
    I wonder if the lady still sews or did she ever learn? Was she too busy
    day dreaming about Keith Fowler? Nah - how could you not learn to sew on
    a Singer 404?

    This caused me to remember some cheap, but solid wood dressers we had years & years ago. We couldn’t even afford paint to protect the wood. Any way, the drawers wouldn’t slide out securely, they would drop downwards. In order to prevent this from happening, I got some leftover lumber and cut out the right size to install in the dresser to support the drawers. While cut to size, my children & I used a wood burning tool to write names & draw pictures. I don’t remember what ever happened to these dressers. I think it would be fun to come across them in an auction or household sale.
