Bad Ass Safe

I'm trying to buy this safe from a friend. It's not that big but man it's heavy if anyone has info on this type I would again be appreciated. That Cary emblem was on the dial so it's a Cary safe. I just never seen one with so much levers on the front. I don't know why it reminds me of something from Wells Fargo..

There was a time when nitroglycerine was a standard tool of the burglar. To prevent getting nitro in the door gap they made to close the safe as tight as possible. For this they added an extra mechanism to push the door in before throwing the bolts.

Re: Bad Ass Safe

It's a jeweler's chest. The lock should be a Yale Y-6. It may have a bronze case. Just to be sure it isn't a straight -tailpiece, apply pressure to the handle while rotating the dial. Dial will bind if it is a straight-tailpiece.

Re: Bad Ass Safe

I finally got this safe opened. It wasn't through manipulating the lock. I'll say I used a tiny flash lite and a long reg. screwdriver. I'm not proud its just the dial wouldn't turn. When I open it it was filled with crud and oil plus the bottom wheel with teeth one of them was bent upwards. It is a 4 wheel cary lock I think its a y6 or something like that. Ill be taking pics. One question I have is this a collectible safe, if it is I'll put it back to stock if not I'm thinking of designing it with Wells Fargo on it and mabey have handles welded on its sides. All suggestions are welcome and stay safe guys this covid shit is sucks.

Re: Bad Ass Safe

Jeweler's chests are nice little boxes. If it would be my safe I would clean and service it and perhaps try a mild restoration. But it is your safe. The condition is not that great. If you would customize to your likes I guess the loss of monetary and historical value would not be so high.

This is my 4th friction fence lock and the 1st 4 wheel friction fence lock is this a good collectable lock as far as me personally all my locks are like jewelry. My father who is 84 said if there worth money sell them. I told him I couldn't sell any of them and I display them like antique artifacts. The most I've spent was 50.00 on a newer s&g 6730. The rest were free or 25.00. If I get any more ideas about redoing the Gary safe or if not I'll send more pictures as I go along.

Re: Bad Ass Safe

Even so I don't have a Y6, they are not really rare in the US. Nonetheless they are a nice piece of history worth displaying. The patent for this mechanism is US840269.
