Master crafter Matthias Wandel (famous for his homebrew pipe organ) made this clever wooden combination lock to demonstrate how combination locks actually work. He has a nice write-up at his site, and is selling detailed plans if you need them. [via O’Reilly Radar]

    I get disappointed when I see interesting projects on MAKE, only to be led off site to a link that wants me to buy something. It’s a hussle, and just another form of SPAM. Can someone check the links and at least have the courtesy to post a codicil like “you will be redirected to their web site where you can purchase plans for “x” amount of dollars”. No one likes a shyster.

      I mentioned this in the article:

      detailed plans if you need them.

      It’s a cool project, and he includes enough detail that one could easily re-create it on their own.

      Make frequently publish blog entires with full access to entire printed magazine articles. Besides, for any maker, that ‘write-up’ is basically a set of detailed instructions.

      Additionally, if you look at the website, there are no adverts. Seems like they just want to recoupe a few hosting costs.
