    Default High Security Safe book by Dave Mc Omie

    Just taken delivery of this book, American publcation, and find it quite interesting. Have any of you who actually work on these high security safes come aross this publication and if so how do you rate it ?

    It's a good book. There is also a volume II. Dave McOmie is without question a master in the field. An interesting thing to note about this book, is that DM provides enough information for the experienced technician / engineer to make an ID of a container and to plan an opening. However, many essential measurements are omitted...
    I believe intentionally. This is not a step by step guide to opening High Security Safes. It assumes the operator possesses a certain level of skill and knowledge, and provides just enough information for the inexperienced to have a hellish time. A responsible decision on the part of the author I think.
