The false gates (three on each disk) look to me randomly positioned. They are neither aligned when the true gates are aligned nor am I able to align them ignoring the true gates.

How do you know which one is the most likely wheel?
How do you only test that?

Congrats on your timing. Looks very good to me.

Cheers :)

The gates in this lock appeared nearly always in the standard order 3, 2, 1. So for the first indication I do a test with w3 changed and w2 and w1 at the indication. If the contact points jump up to the level where the are next to the indication I believe it is w3 and skip the tests for w2 and w1.

Well, now it makes sense. You know this lock so well, you already know which wheel is indicating.

Thanks for the explanation :)

Phew! Not a good spinning day for me today. 88 minutes. AWL scan with w3@62. R/R/L62 scan with w2@82. With the L/R82/L62 scan I had problems. I did not look right. To flat and sometimes also higher than the R/R/L62 scan. No indication of w1 at all. I again identified w2, which was correct, and then also w3, which was also correct. I did reamplification of w2@82 and got 84! fsck! So again a L/R84/L62 scan and at L52/R84/L62 the lock was open, finally! Without this 2 notches error I would have been below one hour, but not much. After the 6642 the easy going 6730 dial was kinda strange.

77/87/82. Open in 43 minutes.

The resistanceless dialing is really strange now after the long session with the 6642. The 6642 feels now like it has less turning resistance or perhaps I have built up muscles in my forearm. Anyway back to the 6730. The first AWL graph did not show good indications of a gate, just maybe one, two or three slight indications or graphing errors. So I parked w1 and w2 at the lowest point of the AWL graph and scanned the high area of the AWL scan with w3. At 82 I had a clear gate. Then I kept w1 at the low area of the AWL graph and scanned w2 with w3 at the gate. I started at 30 backwards over the high area of the AWL graph and had the clear gate at 87. Then I scanned the high area of the AWL graph with w1 starting at 45 forwards. At 77 it was open.

Besides the masking of the gate at w3 by w2 it was easy going. w1@82 was indeed at the best faint indication of the AWL graph, but that could have just been an error. It was just 1/8th on each side lower.
