Re: MartinHewitt's Safe Chronicles

No. 4

The lock and dial on this LG 3330 was mounted very well. Unfortunately it took me 3 hours to open it. The gate on W1 was actually the first which I had.

The story of the safe is a very common one. It sat around for some years unused and unlocked. Then somebody spinned the dial.

I am considering getting safe stickers for my car. One sticker per opened safe.

Fantastic!!

Now the dial - that looks much different than what we're use to seeing.
Is that normal there to see that type of dial connected to a LaGard?

From what I can tell from your pic, it looks ike it could make for a
more time-consuming manipulation than would the usual 1777 dial.

Re: MartinHewitt's Safe Chronicles

It probably comes from the Mauer-part of the company from what the name sounds:

So it might be only old here in Germany or Europe.

I am not a good/fast dialer, so I am not the best person to make a statement regarding dial usage, but using the tiny knob in the middle was IMHO not comfortable.

Vistaprint makes stickers for windows, but they have only 75ppi.

Re: MartinHewitt's Safe Chronicles

Btw. this safe has already been manipulated open about 10 years ago by the person who passed this job to me. So this safe evaded already two times a forceful entry.
