Two statements of caution on cutting into old safes,
Some are filled between the steel walls with concrete and or asbestos/cement combo. A big mess as the dust goes everywhere and is a pain I A to clean up not to mention a health/toxic waste hazard.
Some of the real old safes, had vials of cyanide in the doors as a burglar proofing system. As I wasn't a safe man, just locks and keys I don't remember the dates when they quite using it them. But I do know there are still a lot of them out there. So be careful if you start working on the doors of any real old ones.
As to the tooth could have been his or his child's tooth, it is amazing what is kept in the safes by people. There are always interesting stories in the locksmithing magazine.

Cyanide !! I guess that would take care of the burglar, and then some.
I defiantly appreciate the info Sir. I try my best to look ahead and even try to stop for a second and think of the common sense kinda stuff. I thought about the concrete and drilled a tiny hole to make sure that it was only steel. I never thought about asbestoses tho, I guess it makes sense for fire proofing.
I will defiantly keep these tips in mind if I ever come across this again.

That sounds just as bad as having a bomb in a coffin just in case a body snatcher comes along.
