vault

I helped a semi retired locksmith with this vault a few weeks ago. it was built in 1903, bank closed in 1938, hadn't been opened since then until a month ago. I didn't help to open it, just made sure no one could get locked in. the place is being remodeled, and they want people to see the work of art. I have a ton of pictures

Re: vault

I love looking at big vault doors. They scare the hell out of me when I'm working, but I like looking at them.

Would love to see more pictures.

Re: vault

Holy crap that's some amazing workmanship.
Is this in 'as found' state? or was everything cleaned and polished up?

Re: vault

spyder, it was wiped down with a rag. It is going to be buffed out by a car body body guy who is also into this stuff. It will be put on display in what ever store they put into the space the vault is in.

Re: vault

if you look close, you can see the glass door that covers the bolt work. The glass door also locks in place. - sorry about the body body thing in my last post. It's 5:00 am, and I'm kind off groggy

Re: vault

I think it's a shame there isn't that kind of artistic pride in workmaship on safes and vaults anymore. That is beautiful work.

Re: vault

The reason is probably that people do not want to pay so much for safes.

Re: vault

Martin, this is not a safe, it's a vault. There are 6 safe locks to open to get inside the back section. there are three seperate spaces all lock up to get into.

This is a first look photo. from my friend, and he lives 4 miles away.
