About the video, you spin fast man!
About a program to generate random combos, I've been using thesafehouse combo generator for ages and I'm very happy with it. I'm not saying Trevor program is't good. I just prefer an url over a program.

1) I'll find a gate for w3, or 2) I'll find nothing, but will have ruled it out & taken less overall time to do.
CPT1911 has talked in detail about this option and found good success with it. Until now, I've never
had to use it. But finding myself in this little dilemma presented the perfect opportunity to give it a try.

So I simply run w3 through the area, but with a LEFT rotation this time.

I've gotten lazy I guess and instead of paying close attention to my dialing, I've been relying on feel. My Diebold has taught me to slow down and pay a bit closer attention, so that's a good thing.

The 'rise' we're looking for runs from 35-32. That's the gate! As soon as the
gate is no longer under the fence the reading goes bad (drops) by a 1/2 inc.
And with the third graph example it shows wheel 1 going around left but the graph looks like you graphed it from right to left instead of left to right since 33.5 is the end of it. What am I missing here?
Nope. 34 was not the end of it.... it's the beginning. It was the first reading I took.
Again, is it possible we're just thinking in different terms maybe?
