My second attempt at a Cryptex. This one was put together for a family friend when he enlisted in the Air Force. Construction was similar to the first, except I needed a few extra wheels for the word.

This is truly awesome, out of curiosity did you use the plans from Scrollsaw Woodworking & Crafts to make this? Looks to be of similar design.

I confess, I am not sure what that is- a coding machine? But, it looks very nice and nicely made too.

Jim55 google cryptex. Its a puzzle box, they have dials each containing all 26 letters of the alphabet. When the proper word is spelled by rotating the dials, the box pulls open and has a compartment inside.

Keep in mind this particular box has 9 letter dials… This means 5,429,503,678,976 possible combinations… Yes, thats right, over 5.4 TRILLION lol.
