Wheel movement; what wheel(s) I'm currently moving, at what positions I left the others,
knowing exactly where I'm at within the wheel pack at all times, etc. - this is something
that I struggled with for some time. I would get 'lost' easily. It took me a good deal of
time and effort before it became natural and I could visualize what was going on.
Given that you may not be entirely familiar with movement yet, I'd say you're actually
doing half way decent. And your graphs; although they may not make complete sense
... as long as YOU
understand them... that's all that really matters.
Attempting to learn manipulation through cracking your first locked safe is certainly
not the smoothest transition, lol. Don't get me wrong. When I see this, I never dis-
courage it. My hats off to you. I get it! It's an exciting challenge. And by the way,
it's not impossible. I've seen it successfully done several times here on the forum.
However, this poses a very unique challenge on both ends. For you seeking advice
as well as anyone trying to offer it. People must attempt to draw definitive conclusions
based off the data you've collected. And you will likely have a difficult time interpreting
and/or carrying out any suggestions given. Fact is, until you've done your homework,
there's only so much anyone can do for you.
All that said... what the hell?! I want you to be able to take this safe home for free!
Based solely on the papers you've presented, I'm going to draw some conclusions
and throw out some thoughts. Take it all with a grain of salt though!
1. Your 2nd graph; to be frank Fritz - scrap it. The wheel action used to produce it
is sketchy, at best. Not to mention, it reveals no additional information that your 1st
graph has not already shown you.
2. This is probably not the best advice for someone just starting out, but in your case
I think it may help simplify things. From now on skip on reading the LCP. Instead,
take readings only from the the RCP. Remember, you turn left (counter-clockwise)
to touch the right contact point @ approximately 10 on this lock.
3. The variation you have around 20. According to how you've set up & numbered
your graph - this area is not
showing a low (which would suggest a gate). Instead,
this is a high reading. A peak, very likely produced by the 'tab' on the outer edge
of the wheel that I mentioned to you in the other thread.
But what wheel does this peak @ 20 belong to? I'm betting w1. Here's why.
Your low test (although flawed) suggests w1. And on your 2nd graph (no,
you don't have to dig it back out of the trash, lol)... Best I can make of it is
that you've basically ran (isolated) wheel 1 while parking 2&3 @ 20. The
fact that the peak around 20 showed up also seems to suggest wheel 1.
So here's my best half-assed guess for your next course of action.
First, run and graph all wheel right once more through the area of 20 so you
can see exactly
how wide this peak spans. Then select true center
of it. You
may find it to be 19, 20, 21, 22, etc. Whatever it is, add 50 to land you directly
opposite... that's approximately
where the gate is for wheel 1. So if you find
the center of the peak to be 21, then the gate for w1 is @ RIGHT
This is the first number of your combination. R71 - L? - R?
Now setup for your next graph: Park w1 @ R71... run 2&3 together around LEFT.
Be CERTAIN your rotations are correct for this. 4X RIGHT to 71 will place all three
wheels at 71. Now turn 2X LEFT. The second time you approach 71 you will have
picked up both wheels 2&3. Your first reading will be taken at 72.5. Then 75, 77.5,
Get it open and take it home my friend!
