Summer in Australia


Just registered. I am in Australia. Retired. Locks intrigued me all my life as well as clocks did - maybe clock more? Not sure. Maybe just this single letter difference? Both devices have something hidden, secretive, mysterious; something which is part of the creator (the lock/clock creator not the Creator).
Of particular interest to me are strong boxes with the dial mechanisms. I just need to understand what type is better and more reliable: mechanical or digital.

Best regards to all.

Re: Summer in Australia

piparazyna, welcome to the forum! The general concensus is that electronic locks are still trying to find their footing. Reliability is still suspect. Mechanical locks have been around long enough to have quite the track record of reliability and success. There are those that really like the electronic locks, but not the majority. I think we all believe they will find their way, it is just going to take a bit of time. Will mechanical locks go away? Probably not. The expense to retrofit would be prohibitive. We "mechanical guys" can feel secure in our aged ways!
