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.

Hey WMD2006. Do you have the build plans? I want to make one for the commandant of the Marine Corps. I can design one on my own but want to see how to build the locking mechanism because I would just make one that could be out like a masterlock.

BBL, The plans came from Scrollsawer magazine. They’ve got the PDF available on their website:http://www.scrollsawer.com/files.php?force&file=issues/gizmos/Wooden_Puzzle_Vault_GIZSIP_327278258.pdf
More recently I built a version using segmented rings and posted it to Instructables:http://www.instructables.com/id/Segmented-Wooden-Cryptex/Since I used staves for the vault I was able to make it a little bigger. Good Luck!
