The indestructable bike lock! ...Idea Answered
The indestructable bike lock: the forum topic that was posted undeniably just to annoy the future patenters!
So I had this weird idea for a product come out of nowhere.
Y'know how aluminum is supposed to make cutting wheels on an angle grinder gum up, stick, and shatter - when trying to cut it, that is? I was wondering, what if a company engineered a special type of aluminum alloy or a similar material that would do just that: gum up abrasive cutting wheels and make them stick/bind and shatter. Then like with layers of plywood, it would be sandwiched together with hardened steel, in the shape of a U-lock bike lock, making it:
- Impossible to cut through with a hacksaw, reciprocating saw, TCT bladed portaband , because it's hardened and would wreck the teeth.
- Impossible to cut through with an angle grinder or rotary tool with an abrasive wheel because the aluminum would gum it up.
- Impossible to cut through it with bolt cutters - obviously...
- Impossible to freeze it with freezing gas? I don't know. I heard that's what thieves do. Maybe that aluminum alloy would be a super-insulator and wouldn't allow the hardened steel layer to freeze and become more brittle?
I think it might just be invincible until the portable cordless battery powered waterjet is invented!
