Topic tags/keywords: question

I am interested in building music boxes. But I do not want to just build the box and install a pre fab kit. I want the tedious mind bending task of building one from scratch. What I need is someone to point me in the right direction on the hows and why’s of the mechanics of a music box. I have been searching the internet and have found little detail about it. Just mixed and matched pieces of information. Can anyone recommend a book, possibly with exploded diagrams and the nitty gritty bare bones details? Or possibly a website that has such details. Thanks LJer’s

Are you talking about building the musical movement itself?

I know you can buy the movements made and then design the exterior, let me see if I find the website I saw a while back
