I needed a smaller version of the full Programable Cryptex without loosing the definition of the letters, so I have split the letter ring into 2 (A-M and N-Z). (I was also running out of ABS) This allows any word to be selected by fitting the appropriate ring.

Sorry, although any word or letter combination can be set once assembled this only has 371293 combinations rather than the full 11,881,376.

Any comments welcome.


Please see the original Programable Cryptex (thing 36059) for full instructions,

The only difference is the two letter rings (A-M and N-Z) print 5 of each for a full set.

New: Stronger central core uploaded!

13 ^ 5 = 371293 combinations?

You are correct. I have no idea how I came up with the original number. Many thanks

What is the inner size ? i.e. the maximum dimension of what I can put inside

Sorry for delay in replying, been out of the country (UK that is). Space is about 11mm x 15mm x 65mm with some allowance for round corners.
