Cracked My Second Group 2 Safe Lock Today!

Only recently joined, so thought I'd share this with you:

:safedial: Cracked my second S&G 6700 today :mrgreen:

Was way more of a pain than it should have been. 3 graphs of inconsistent readings, high/lows all over the place, then my contact points started moving depending on the direction I approached from :slam:

Eventually realised that the spline key was moving.

Changed it out and 5 hours later:

Man that feels good :slainte:

A loose spline key can be real hell. I wonder why there is no manipulation protection mechanism with a loose spline key. Great, that you got the lock open after fixing this.

Thanks!

Looking back at my pages of tests, I can see that the movement started out small, but it was there.

By the time I noticed what was happening my contact points were moving an entire increment between AWL and AWR.

But the amount varied if it was LLR LRR etc.

Lesson learned though :mrgreen:

Congratulations! Feels good, we know. Even more if it was difficult and you did it anyway.

Cheers :)

I wouldn't be posting this if it wasn't for you guys sharing your experiences and opinions on spinning here over the years!

Thank you all! :D
