There was no key so I had to drill through the lock. I found about 20$ in quarters and got to see the nifty mechanism that makes everything work. Sadly, its calibrated to accept the weight of two quarters but I played with it and I cannot open the dispenser for 50 cents anymore. I found a way to prevent the door from locking and now I just store my vinyls inside. I built a simple plywood bookcase for it to sit on and it’s at the perfect height for my record player!
I got some really cool Koss speakers that I also found in the trash to fit perfectly on the last shelf. Whenever i get enough records, the shelf is high enough for them to nicely fit in. Soon I might stain the ply or paint it some colour.
