    Default Any smaller cash or money chest made than this?

    I bought this about a year ago. I've looked around quite a bit and haven't seen one this small again. There aren't any bolt-down holes. Maybe it went inside a larger safe? It's 1"think body with 1.5" thick front and door. 10" x 10" x 12" deep, weighing 175 pounds.

    When it comes to a safe/chest with a heavy cast body, heavy cast door, and a full sized lock it is unlikely to find one much smaller. In order to fit a full sized lock inside the door dictates door size which dictates body size. Post a picture of your door and lock. Curious to see what style it is.

    The one I reworked was about 12" in all directions and did have a hole in the back side for securing it. I was told it was a wall safe but it was suggested that it could have been an inner chest.

    I only have a pic of the door at this time. Next time I open it I'll remove the relocker back plate and get a picture. I added about 55 pounds of 3/4" T1 steel plates inside, held on with powerful 1/16" thick neodymium disc magnets. Now at about 230 pounds it's becoming secure to a casual burgler.

    I love the safe and vault world since a lot of this stuff doesn't have model numbers and there's so much variety and mystery to what is out there.

    Here be the lock body. I don't want to take the lock back off since I don't know how it works beyond the basics.
