Re: new to The Motel Room


I think I found the lock.
--Log in or sign up to see linked image content--
The keyhole pattern matches the Niessen Catalogue
--Log in or sign up to see linked image content--
The first time I've seen a number on the back plate of a Eagle lock. The 610 has the same fluting as the 612a but inverted.
--Log in or sign up to see linked image content--
The Eagle Catalogue 1938 has a number of pin tumbler drawer locks using a 11605. It was their go to key blank. The Eagle numbers for these locks were 03###. So it seems reasonable that the 610 on the above lock points at the 600 series keys. Niessen used that modeling number in there catalogue, but not Keil and International. keil is 164 and the International is 1014. Of interest is both keil and International have a number of key blank list as 1014a 1014c, and the same with Keil in fact way more e,f,d,c, d, dr and others. It leads me to think at same time a huge number of cabinet company wanted a large range of locks, eagle created a bunch of variations. Further these must have been very populate for keil and international to produce so many different key blank in the same series. Most key from these two companies did not have keys will trailing letters, so something unusual was accruing. Wish I knew what that was.


 I have the Eagle 1950 Catalogue and the disk shape of the cylinder plate is way different. So a window of 1937 to 1949 for the manufacture of the lock. I do not have any Eagle Catatlogues form 1924- back so it is possible the lock could be way older than 1937. From the listing in the 1938 cat Eagle did a lot of lock for high end cabinets and furniture. Wood desks and wooden file cabinet for office uses. This may be the reason no 612a has turned up. Also the number of companies which made dup blanks is impressive. In both following manufacture runs and issuing dups a good 40 years after the lock went out of production. I have a Ilco from the 80s , a 1014dr , that has the same profile as the Niessen 612a.

I am ruling out the pad lock path for the 116xx keys for the following reason. Pad lock key tend to be put on different key rings as a key which would open a front door or a wooden file cabinet. Solution to lost pad lock key, cut it off. But a wooden file cabinet with a $1000 of cabinet quality oak dup keys would be needed well into this century.

So I am widen my search to desks and wood file cabinets. This all may well be a bust, but what the heck.

Re: new to The Motel Room


lock arrived today. The keys are way short compared to the 612 and 610. The lock channel not even close to the 610. So dead end back to no real path to padlock or wooden draw. oh well

A previously unknown use for a time machine : To go back to the 50's / 60's and get a 612A key and lock from Niessen Brothers.

Sounds like a good reason to invent a time machine to me.

Re: new to The Motel Room


First a Merry Christmas to all.
Wow three years and going into a fourth.
The major find of the year was a
bulova with sub second the printing
on the face clean and sharp only
down side is a red film on parts of
the dial. Found a clock smith who's
willing to switch out case, strap and
the metal clasp. The movement stopped
working after careful winding, do not
know if it will be fixable. When I get
it put together will post photo with salt
shaker and egg.

Jin sent me a show pencil which is way
cool. Got three foot powder tins and
four new totally wrong ash tray (10 total).
Coat was driving me totally nuts, so it
have given up on that, well for awhile.

So what's left? The suitcase. Still need
to do the newspaper. I also have to set
aside time to go into Berkley and track
down possible leads on the Conte Oak
Painting.

Oddly I still have not found a 612 A
I got a 612 and a 611A.


Strange Lost Room Moment watching TV
show Homeland Tim Guinee is running
a CIA Mission working for Mandy Patinkin
who asks for some gum: Black Jack. Yup
our yet to be proven Lost Room gum. All
the same flat out fun.

Re: new to The Motel Room


Read a posting from ThyWhoDevourstheSoulsofMen which got me thinking. He pointed out that the objects want to get out. What if the objects want to get back? You stay in a motel room because time and space forces you to take shelter, but in a real sense all you really want to do is go home. What if the objects want to go home and the one thing standing in their way is the one thing they need to make it happen: People.

sort of The Sirens of Titan
