We drilled out the old Lane cedar chest lock full diameter and it still doesnt open. We are stumped as what to do next. Pls advise.   ?

    There's a latch that the lock mechanism operates. You removed the lock, but the latch is still there. Look at the inside top of the hole, you will see it. Hammer it upwards using a screwdriver or chisel.
