Blowin’ ATMs

— Posted by ghettopimp70 on 5:45 pm on Mar. 10, 2002

Ok, so I’ll admit that when it comes to explosives and pyrotechnics I am pretty ignorant so i was wondering if it’s possible to blow open an ATM and if it is what i should use and where i should put it etc.

LOL a couple guys(dolts) in Australia had the exact same idea!
And trust me it doesnt work! They managed to melt the face of the ATM a little bit, and this was with a pretty hefty pipebomb too!
So the amount of explosives you’d need to take the whole face off so you can get to the safe which is actually like 3 feet behind the atm, would be an astronomical amount!!
Oh yeah and in future dont post such kewl bullshit, no offence…

I had a feeling it wouldnt work or i’d just blow the shit outta the money

Don’t even try it, the atm’s here have a direct link to the bank and the police…

there is most likely an alarm whcih tells the cops that someone is breaking into the bank and if you made and explosive that was powerful enought to destroy the atm and the safe you would also most likely blow the money to shit

It would probably be easier to strap a bomb to yourself and walk in and rob a bank :).

uh.. those bitches have cameras on em anyways. They are required to. Anyways I would say… why blow one up? the money would get all burnt and shit.

Don’t try that shit,there cameras and everthing tryin to catch ur ass.The moneys to far back and don’t u think that they have direct link to police.To risky and stupid.
If u want money robby a small joint, if u want to vandalize do it were cop won’t really care.

MOST IMOPTANTLY , DON’T TRY TO BLOW UP BIG IMPORTANT SHIT…….it not worth the effort,time,or money….well maybe the money

it depends on what it is

blowing up an atm isnt the smartest thing to do in australia. even if the atm doesnt have a camera , there is usually a camera attached to a signpost or a streetlight near it . so ur screwed either way unless u make yourself un-identifyable.
it’d be more fun to blow up the engine on a armagaurd truck , and then get one of them once its finished its rounds.

Why not use thermite if you want to burn through…I wouldn’t suggest it but thermite can vaporize steel..

— Posted by irish man on 3:01 pm on Mar. 23, 2002

use an alliminum ring to lit it because the thermitre is to hard to lit.

sorry for the bad spelling

I saw once on one of those FOX shows a guy take his truck through a convenience store and hook up an ATM to his truck and drive off with it. I think he got away too

There’s those mini-ATMs that you see inside gas stations.  I’ve heard of at least one store where two guys walked in, picked it up, carried it out and drove away.  The clerks just let them take it even though no one ever showed a gun.  Didn’t take long for the police to pick them up though.
