Help ID this Lock

locktype.JPG

What I know about this lock is very little.
It's a Yale
Old
Does not feel like a spring lever
Feels like a direct entry with out false gates
Wheels will bind if I put pressure on the handle turning CCW (Between 92 and 4).
Maybe an OB type?

Re: Help ID this Lock

Many safe makers used the OB, so I'll also say it is possibly the Yale OB.......but

Re: Help ID this Lock

Thank you!
I will have to look that up in a book to see what's going on. Any tips on manipulating this type of lock?
I am stumped at this time. I looked for it in Oldfast's Safe Chronicles only to find he has been victimized by the Photobandits.
My Boss has some Dave McOmie books at work. So do I graph the contact points like a 6730, or handle rotation like a direct entry?

Re: Help ID this Lock

Chances are it is friction fence lock ... Look at Page 65 (Actual page not PDF page) of The National Locksmith Guide to Manipulation.
