Info on Honeywell 2101 mechanical combo safe?

Purchased a return Honeywell 2101 safe that the seller can't open. I don't have it yet, but the manual online says it is a 4 number combo then you turn the key to open which is a dimple key by pictures. Wondering if anyone knows if it is a direct fence moved by the key or not?

Could be wrong but I think Honeywell is still made by Sisco. Yes, more than likely to be a direct entry with key as the handle.

Got the safe. It does have a dimple key and is direct entry.

Turning the dial while putting a little pressure on the key gave a deep 10 digit wide gate at 45.

Set up a cheap inclinometer to the key and rubber band to tension the key.

Image

Ran AWR and back to 45 each time and got a gate signature at 95.

Image

A quick high low confirmed W1 was R95

Ran W2 & W3 Left with W1 R95 which was inconclusive.

Image

Ran W3 Left with W1 & W2 at 95 and got a "wow" signature at 35.
Ran it again from 25 to 45 with the same results shown in green.

Image

Ran W2 Left 5 at a time with W1 R95 W3 R35 and at W2 L60 got the open.
95-60-35-45

Image

Total time just under 1 hour 30 min.

Here is what the cheap lock looks like:

I was off a hair on the combo but with 10 wide gates it didn't matter.
Should have went by 5 from the get go.

Wheel pack:

I cleaned everything and added a couple of washers here and there to tighten up the fence and re-bent the fence mechanism to straighten up the locking bolts.
They had been bent from a force open attempt which left the door a little loose.
Also re-arranged and flipped a couple wheels to change the combo.

Very nice setup! That inclinometer is a great idea.

Cheers :)
