    How to Make a Cryptex

    @KennyRayOxenrider - 'fraid not. There are only four movable wheels, each of which has 26 possible positions. So that's 26 x 26 x 26 x 26 permutations of wheel positions relative to the fixed pointer - 456976 in total. If you want to explicitly include the fixed pointer (which has one position) in the arithmetic, then it's 1 x 26 x 26 x 26 x 26 permutations.
