My pleasure. it's the least I could do after all the help you folks gave me.

I made a little base for it today out of some half inch plexy I had kicking around. - I had made one for my S&G 6741 the other day and I thought this lock deserved the same. It came out pretty good I think. I also cut a little "viewing hole" in the back of the lock body cover plate. - I am not as happy about that, so I will probably clean that up a little more tomorrow.

I uploaded some more pics of that to my album. https://photos.app.goo.gl/dgA8rCiHUqYefxvB9

Nice that you were able to recover this lock!


Great idea Edocdab! Why didn't I think of using Plexi on the back of it before I cut a big hole in the brass cover. I have plenty of the stuff kicking around. Oops!
ah well. its a nice conversation piece for my class. It will get a lot more use now that it is here than it ever would on the safe.
