Looking for Name of Safe Opening Aid Stickon Blueprint

Over 20 years ago I seem to remember a tool that was demonstrated at a meeting that really helped drilling

A measured blueprint on clear plastic clung to the front of the safes giving xray vision and clearly showed drillpoints.

Does anyone remember the name or seller of this aid?

In case you wonder ... Martin Hewitt is a fictional detective in stories by Arthur Morrison:

Thanks for the input.

Thats the right idea but what I saw the safeman with looked to be a large selection covering many makers and models.

Probably the company that created the collection is out of business or chooses to not discuss their products on the internet.

Maybe he just made up his own.

Turns out that I saw the "Illustrated Safe and Vault Manual by Ed Willis"

I was told that its out of print, and costs about $1,700 per volume of which there are many covering 100's or safes.

There are PDFs sold by MBA. IMHO they are not as helpful as they could be. The scale of a simple print out is not correct and the simple 2D drawings are not explaining the safe mechanics fully.
