Lowrie is long gone.
If you look in the phone book under safes you might find a safe technician who knows how to manipulate and get the safe open without drilling it. Not that drilling and repairing is the end of the world, but manipulation maintains the unit's original integrity.
As for not wanting to spend a lot of money: Only you know what is "a lot of money," it's a function of your means and perceptions.
Some people are surprised and pleased when my fee is much lower than they expected, others suffer from shock and awe upon hearing the same price for the same work. So what do I know, right?
Paying someone to get a safe opened isn't the sort of thing people sit around wishing for in the same way they wish for a new piece of gadgetry or other consumer goods. Therefore a great many people who ask me for safe opening pricing are inclined to think that even 25 or 50 bucks is way more than they want to spend.
