UPD 24.04.2016 i just found photo of assembly. Check step 2

Step 1: What I Plan to Do, and More Photos

This cryptex assembled from 21 parts.

In future i want build cryptex with 2 and 3 secret locks

What i want add in future

1. + electromechanical lock. If someone open external casing - flash drive will be still blocked

2. + Cryptosystem that encode data on memory bank

Step 2: Assembly

I just found photo of assembly
