Re: Need help with an old safe

I'm assuming one couldn't just get to it and open it and reach in...

Even in that other forum, I couldn't do that. fasteddy See Profile would take it down and ban me for sure.

So you are right, no pics and it didn't happen.

Nothing yet, safe is on the back burner for now.

I guess that's it for this thread for now. If you ever get it open let us know.

Not going to get any results when the OP says the "safe is on the back burner for now" either.

Maybe heating it up on the stove will work.

You'd be surprised by the kind of results you can get from a safe on the back burner. If you suspect the content of the safe to be gold all you have to do is slowly heat it to 1100C / 2000F. That is slightly above the melting point of pure gold but still below the melting point of iron and steel. Just sit back and wait for the gold to drip through the gap of the safe door

That's all well and good unless there's paper in the safe... like Apple stock certificates, or AT&T stocks.

I bet it's just flat-out empty.

Depending on if you want to use the safe again or not you can hire a professional safe-cracker to open it if you were so inclined (sure that has been mentioned somewhere).

Don't know if this has been mentioned or if the OP already tried it, but if the empty weight of the safe is known, he can weigh it to see if its empty ... providing he can get it on a scale

A 5 carat diamond weighs 1 gram. Think weighing the safe would tell you if there was a 5 carat diamond in it? That's worth tens of thousands of dollars.

I'm no expert, but I'd guess one pound.

That is where you are wrong, a pound is only 1.6138 dollars, there would be no 100's.

No, he meant how much does a pound of 100's weigh. He's making a funny.
