Vintage tube floor safe

I've been renting a home for 14 years and my landlord has passed away. There is a Sentry Tube Floor Safe in the basement and even the landlord said they never knew the combo to it. It looks quite vintage.
I've been trying the old Left 4, Right 3, Left 2, Right 1 trick with 50, 24, 65, open. The lock gets easy to turn after 24 and seems like they are opening, but after a dozen tries nothing. The landlords daughter doesn't know where the deed to the property is, so it could be in this safe.

Is there any way of bypassing the combination to it?

There is no crows foot on it, it's a tiny tiny little dot. No serial numbers, no model numbers, nothing.

I believe it's 3 x Left, 2 x Right, 1 x Left to open. Try Elmer Howard's Sentry Safe Manual.

Re: Vintage tube floor safe

I tried starting on 0, but didn't work., or did you mean use the 50, 24, 65 numbers?

Re: Vintage tube floor safe

I think your safe has two wheels and a Drive wheel. The dial sequence would be 3 times around Left to the first number, 2 times around Right to the second number, 1 time around left until the bolts retract.

In the video is an example of "Brute Forcing" to open the combination lock .(Time mark 2:16-5:50). Not the same lock as yours and the dialing directions may be different. But is a good example that shows how your safe can be opened.
