Hand Crank Music Machine Answered

Does anyone know about these small music boxes that play music? If you seen one, they're these small things that play notes in a looped sequence using small metal plates (kind of like a finger piano). Can anyone try to make something like that? Sorry for the small details if anyone's confused.

I know that ThinkGeek sells one that you can "program" yourself with blank paper. Dunno about making one, though - that would require access to some fairly special jeweler's or machinist's tools.
