1930’s Antique Sentry Safe Restoration - Perfect Restoration
, , ,

This is my previous video: fibill.info/nick/videot/tIGDeIqXlXhopKE

Hello everyone. Here I am with a new restoration project. I have restored a very heavy antique belongs to early 1900s. (1930's) This safe weighs approximately 100kg (220.46 lbs) In this restoration I added wheels which weren't there originally. Lock mechanism of the safe wasn't original too. I guess that it might ve got broken in theft attempt. I found some hints about that incident. I believe the possibility of an attempt of fixing at 1970s there were a fixing residue on the lock mechanism because of some lock and some bolts from that time period. I renewed the lock mechanism completely. Now lock mechanism is clean and weldless. We can hear bolder sound as a result. So how I find this safe; I bougth it from and old Armenian woman. It belonged to women's husband. It was in his jewelry shop. And they brought it to their home. Since she wasnt using it she wanted to sell it. That way I have reached to this woman. I bougth it approximately a year ago. I feel very satisfied about this restoration . I hope that you will like it too

    Deine mechanischen Fähigkeiten sind ausgezeichnet! Du musst nur noch an deinen Film/Editing Fähigkeiten arbeiten. Wenn du beides gleichermaßen beherrschst, wird deine Kanal auf das nächste Level aufsteigen. Your mechanical skills are superb! You only need to refine your filming/editing skills. If you are able to refine both skills equally, then your channel will grow to the next level. Cheers and keep up the good work!

    It is an amazing transformation. But, critically, the escutcheon around the knob/handle still has deep scratches. I noticed when you were polishing and hoped you would take them out off camera before completion....nope. Was it a concern of getting the brass too thin or just getting tired? I don't mean to be a dick. It's a serious question.

      I think you are talking about the circle around the on/off lever. I couldn't make it smooth so as not to thin it out.

    Liquid metal ??? Didn't I see some welding on here

  • keithupton86ku

    That welding at 13:10, just holding the piece with your bare hands is pretty crazy. Also, what is 'cold bluing'? I've never seen or heard of it, what is the purpose?

    • jacob

      it‘s used so that the metal is safe from rust without spraying paint on it

    Ob sich solch ein Aufwand bei einem solch billigen Tresor, der doch recht dünn und zusammengepappt aussieht auch wirklich lohnt!?? - Und dann noch Räder dran - damit ihn jeder gleich wegfahren kann!?? :-)) Am Schnellsten wird man ihn wohl von hinten aufschneiden können... - Wirklich toll renoviert aber leider nicht mehr Stand der Technik! - Und mit Rädern maximal nur noch ein Klasse-B Tresor... ohne Feuersicherheit! If such efforts for such a cheepy and thin welded will be costly and effective!?? I have big doubts! and then adding wheels that everybody can push it in his car... :-))
