Interesting 12 Character Cryptex Lockbox
« on: October 16, 2020, 08:18:19 PM »
I stumbled across this on Etsy. This expensive as it ships from Spain. ($52 + $75 Shipping to U.S. = $128)

This just may be the solution for those having difficulty forgetting combinations as it can be ordered with the 12 characters that the Chastikey app can provide. The combination is changeable.

 Is anyone currently using something like this or something similar?

There are other (cheaper) versions available that use numbers instead of letters and fewer (up to 7) wheels. ($25 with shipping.)

I also viewed another inferior version on Amazon ($30), but it uses a single locking pin so it would be a much easier lock to defeat.

It’s funny though, I am currently 3D printing my own 7 digit cryptex, started last night around midnight (PT) and it should be done in about 3 or 4 more hours.

I will never pay that amount of money for something I can make on my own, not unless it was made out of steel/titanium, then it’s a different situation.

Once it’s done printing, I’ll post some pictures 😊

That's awesome. I was all ready to go for it-----until i saw $75 shipping. WOW! What's up with that? BTW, i've created a spreadsheet that will translate numbers to letters...feels random, although it's not, and it will bring back the same letters next time. If interested, contact me.
