Guide to Modern Safe opening
Modern Safe Opening is a very complete guide to opening modern safes. The book begins by defining the various types of wheel locks found in modern safes. This establishes a common vocabulary for the rest of the book. Consideration is given to understanding the reason for the lockout, and the various avenues open, that will effect the opening. Hole locations (drill sites) and the reasons for each are discussed. Many "what if" scenarios are considered before the drill site is selected. Drill site selection, drill and transfer technique, relock devices, under dial drilling, outside the dial angle drilling, side-top-back drilling, tear gas loads, and special equipment are covered. A section on drill bit design, drill speeds, and techniques adds to the mix, to give the reader a more complete understanding of the drilling process. The book closes with methods of door repair.
This book will equip the locksmith with a well rounded understanding of the techniques, tools, and psychology of profitable modern safe opening.
