    Default Misono High Class Hand Safe

    Ok everyone... I pick this "hand safe" up at a clearing sale a few weekends ago. No key, but with a bit of fiddling with the dials, it popped open and to my surprise it was full of ca$h (just kidding - nothing but air!!!), but the alarm did go off!

    More pics to come....

    Nice, I haven't seen those Hand Safes before, interesting boxes, especially with the handwheels to throw the mechanism.

    Dont worry about the orientation of the pics, I think it might be the site and not what you're doing. It happened to me a few weeks back, flipped them 90 degrees every time, but the pics I uploaded a few days ago went fine with no problems at all.

    Default Help wanted

    I have one of these Burval Safe Boxes in New Zealand and it is missing the 2 smaller dials and any mechanism behind them . Can anyone help me ?
    Would like a copy of the patent if possible or good details on how the smaller dials are so I can make them .
    Thanks Martin
