Take a photo of your whole lock body. Chances are it’s reversible.
And I just saw your post on r/woodworking. 😳
When people tell us we’re too expensive, this is the kind of shit I point them towards. 5 hours later you have cheap shit hinges, a cheap shit lock (at a second attempt) and enormous gaps around the door after you attacked it with a plane for no reason. Alternatively, you could have had a locksmith open it for you with no/minimal damage for about £75-100.
If you touch the lining of the case behind each catch you will probably feel a hole in the case hidden under the lining. Inside that hole should be a small button or lever. Once that button is pressed or lever moved you should be able to move the dials to a new combination. Release the lever and the new combination will be locked in.
