It's a nice safe! But worth quite a bit less without the combo. Locksmith's usually cost ~$300 but you can learn to crack it pretty easily if you want. This book is pretty great for learning how to crack safes!

Angle grinder is best, but yhou can use a drill with a cutting disc that looks like this. HOWEVER, don't use a disc like I linked to, you want a cutting disk, and you cut straight down the front of the safe to cut the hinges off. Ask homedepot what the best disc is...They'll know... It will take some time, and make sure you have water on hand in case the sparks get smoky in the dust.

Source, I lost my combo and sentry sent it to me....Recently my ex took a sledge to it and got my booty.....

HOWEVER, the odds are REALLY slim that anything inside it is dangerous, but it was pretty well hidden, so it could be ANYTHING. You should be careful. Like I said earlier, if you have the Serial Number, send it to sentry, these are the instructions. call ahead to make sure they even HAVE combos for that SN....Otherwise you'll be wasting your time.....If you are a member of AAA they might notarize your letter for free...

hmm..... when you turn the handle, does the dial lock up or does it spin smoothly? If it spins smoothly, you can open it pretty easily! On there is a free pdf on how to safecrack and the full version is available on Amazon for just under $12 currently. It's on sale from $15 atm. Good luck! :)

I don't have a stake in this game. I do think it's interesting that the company directly refutes your assertion:

WD-40 and Bikes

Myth: WD-40 Multi-Use Product should not be used on bike chains.

Fact: While WD-40 Multi-Use Product it is not a grease, it is
formulated with strong lubricating oils and other ingredients,
and is a terrific product to use for bike maintenance. It does
not attract dirt or moisture to metal surfaces – just be sure to
wipe off any excess WD-40 Multi-Use Product before riding.

For long-term lubrication and other specialized bicycle
maintenance needs, check out WD-40® BIKE. Developed specifically
for cyclists and mechanics, this high-performance line of bicycle care
products is sure to become a mainstay in the toolboxes of bike
mechanics for decades.

I also think it's weird that after saying it's fine to use on bike chains, assuming you wipe off excess, they've got something that's specifically designed for bikes - which either was marketed because it's actually better for bicycling purposes, or was released due to bike shops instructing people not to use it for this purpose.

Personally, I prefer wax-based chain products on my (motor)bike. If wax-based isn't handy, multi-use teflon'll do.

There are guys that use WD-40 on their motorcycle chains exclusively, and swear by it.

Me, too, and I still am. In 1977 my art teacher shared with us the most common book about his tomb, The Treasures of Tutankhamun, and I was enchanted. That was the year a bunch of the treasures toured, but the closest museum was too far away and my parents didn't have the money for us to go. In 2006 some other items toured, and I did get to see that.

I own a boatload of books and collect Egyptian themed items, but I am very choosy. My best item is a prop throne from the old movie the Ten Commandments. It's heavy, beautifully made, and nearly identical to the Tutankhamun throne found in the tomb. The hieroglyphics and the front and back are even all the same.

I went to Egypt in 1996 and am so sad that the political situation may insure I never get to go back.

Buck 110 by the look of it!
Great, great knife.

They did, but I believe they were only made to operate scsi peripherals (scanners and such). Your best bet would be to find a desktop with a regular PCI slot and install scsi card.

It's not that hard or expensive:

Look up "scoping the change key hole" for more

The important information is on page 61 and 62.

I have done this. Took me 4 hours. Drill a small hole for a scope below where you think the bottom of the locking door ends with a couple inches to spare, maybe 5" below the top of the door. Preferably in an inconspicuous spot. Bend and insert the scope, angle up and hope the change key hole isn't covered by a plate. The follow the process in the above link to determine the combo, then use that combo to open the safe.


Mine had a 2nd door below that needed a key. You could always pick that too if you have one. Or just cut the whole thing off.

Even if they were legitimate and from Ronald Reagan, they were most likely written to Nancy. They wrote each other love letters throughout their marriage.

Perhaps whoever owned the trunk was involved with the book about the letters.

u/rhgla · 52 pointsr/WhatsInThisThing

If you're planning on keeping it call a pro or work with it personally over time. Either way get a wire cam from Amazon, drill an easily repaired hole and have a peek inside to see if it's worth the effort.

Grab a bunch of Saflips. They're archival quality and contain no chemicals that will harm your coins, like PVC. I store mine in slab boxes.

For your banknotes, I'd highly recommend one of these binders. It'll hold about 45 notes before it gets too full. I comes with 20 sleeves and you can buy refill packs of 10 sleeves.

If you want to try and fill a binder for each of your coin types, I would highly recommend Dansco albums.

Also, grab a copy of the 2017 Red Book. It's the standard coin guide for American coins. Also available on iBooks.

Aww, crap. I read and thought of it wrong. I was thinking of Gordon Korman's book, "Swindle". It's a children's book that tells the story of a kid who found a valuable baseball card. When a collector gives him a few bucks for the card worth thousands, the kid has to go and steal it back. It's a pretty fun read.

The sides are divide by parts of the inch. In your picture, the top is tenths of an inch; the bottom is 50ths of an inch. the other sides will say 20 30 40 and 60. This was made sometime before the marks were changed after German reunification in 1990. When the marks changed depends on the company. Source: I have both the engineer and architect scales from Staedtler from around 1991 and they are marked W. Germany. See a similar item here

Use a pencil or something to confirm that it actually goes in.

If it does, something like this could save you a lot of effort to find out it is empty (or find out that it is full of cash and priceless art that you don't want to damage)

Well there's this, but I don't think the DNA would last long.

It's likely an ice chipper. I have a similar one in my kitchen, and use it to break apart frozen food items.

u/justageorgiaguy · 1 pointr/WhatsInThisThing

These safes are pure crap and act better as a boat anchor than a reliable way to store belongings. Take a crowbar to it now. If the solenoid isn't already dead, it will be eventually and you'll bust it open then.

Source - mine died and I busted it to pieces. See also: (different model, same problems)

According to Amazon product info it should be a 4-digit combination. Should only take a few hours to try all of the 4-digit combinations of the most worn keys on the keypad.

This is what I use when my hands get really bad. Gotta just keep slathering regularly until they are repaired. After that use something milder regularly on a preventative basis.
