Ralph you remember two of three number for sure? Or two of four numbers?
(The number where the dial stops at the end of the dialing sequence is not a combination number, it's just where the dial stops when the lock is open.)
If you know two of three numbers, easy, just dial the numbers you know, then try 1, 2, 3, 4, etc. for the missing/forgotten number until it opens. You will dial a maximum of 100 combinations.
Most typically, when I hear a story like yours from a customer, I treat the job as a lost combination and don't give the numbers you "think you remember" or are "positive about" much credence, because such recollections are usually wrong. If you remembered, the safe would be open, or I miss ny guess.
Play with the progression method for a while, but you might be better off paying a ssafe technician to handle it for you. Much depends on how you value your time.
Or go ahead and spend the time and money to build the machine you allude to. We have them, they work, but it comes back to the question: how do you value your own time and effort?
Even if someone you call does happen to own such a machine, don't expect it to be a bargain basement deal just because the safe tech didn't break a sweat. You buy the result not the process or the sweat (or lack of sweat).
