QUESTION: It is a dial

Answer
This safe was sold under many names such as Fyre Fyter, Center Manufacturing.

A competent safe guy can drill a small hole in it and push the handle cam out of the way.

This will not hurt the lock and is repairable.

You won't get in with a stethoscope or beating on it like on YouTube.

They are now out of business so there is no one at the factory to contact for the oringinal combination.

You can find decent safe guys at savta.org and aloa.org.

If you post your city and state, I may know someone there that I can recommend.
