Started my afternoon today by attempting to decode, and then sawing apart a combo bike lock for a neighbour.
It was a Beeway brand chain with combo.
5 dials, neighbour was sure of the code, but it wasn't working.
When tensioned, the last 3 dials defiantly had free-er movement on the expected numbers than the rest, but the first two just kinda spun fairly freely regardless of the amount of tension.
I hypothesised that it was kinda broken. Hacksawing the chain took about 30 mins.
To test the theory, I opened the Masterlock combo bike chain lock on my partner's bike with my eyes closed.
My method was correct for the type of lock, so i think my neighbour's lock was broken.
