Here, Mate, Take This For A Spin
A locksmith has managed to open a 159-year-old safe from Oregon that baffled other professional safecrackers and an expert from MIT. In just two and a half hours, Tom Gorham of Longview got the one-ton safe open by spinning the dial and feeling for grooves to get the combination, a technique called manipulation. The safe’s contents won’t be revealed until next month.
FOOTNOTE: Fail safe.
