    [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.
    It was a waste of time then and still is.

    I can tell you the other side of this story. I didn't engrave my stuff and it was stolen. The police recovered some things and I couldn't prove it was mine. Sometimes you just can't win!

I wonder about the first names on the other machine.... Last week, I saw a sewing machine advertised for sale - it said there were words on the machine but no porn. I guess I should be thankful...
    Okay, now you've got me laughing out loud for real. No porn, I should hope not!

    LOL. I've never seen a "custom engraved" Singer. Back in the '70s when my mom taught home ec, the guidance department scheduled some of the delinquent guys for home ec, if they were considered too dangerous for the shop classes, haha. Seam rippers were pretty substantial, so that's probably the tool that was used.

    That is funny. Keith had gone down in history or immortality. I learned to sew on one of those machines in 1964 in Illinois. They sure took a licking and kept on ticking. My home economics teacher was a saint. I sure miss her.
