Elite Mechanical Memory Key by back2root Elite Mechanical Memory Key by back2root
I present to you my Elite Mechanical Memory Key. After making numerous wooden mechanical memory keys I decided to create a unique one off 'Elite' version.

This beautiful item is an entirely hand crafted out of rare Macassar Walnut & aviation grade aluminium .The key has taken an astonishing 75 hours to complete & is made up of over 240 individual parts - It also houses more than 30 Ruby's! I have used the highest quality 32GB flash memory, housed within the curved wood & metal chassis. It features a green activity LED that shows through the mechanism when in use. I'm really pleased with the result & its without a doubt the most detailed key I've ever... & probably will ever make.

As pictured this key comes in a custom hand made presentation box. Included is a hand formed leather case, pocket watch chain and silver polishing cloth.

All the watch parts have come from damaged or irreparable pocket watches that have been hand disassembled and then combined to create a true, miniature work of art.

This item is now sold!

If you like my work, why not follow me on FaceBook at this [link](link)

Please note as with all my other mechanical memory keys the gears themselves do not move.

Thanks for looking!

I dunno, I love how this looks, no doubt! But I think I prefer the wood ones myself ^^;

I guess the only way anyone can snag one of these is if they commission you beforehand, huh? You seem to sell these before they even get posted up! (or maybe they just sell that quickly?!)

That is awesum! I am planning a pendant using a few hand made gears and cogs that actually move. but the detail that I will get is no where close to this! I love the hole for the lanyard, and the fact that it is a functional piece! Well done mate!:D

That is amazing beautiful!
Divinita-Dea Featured By Owner Sep 11, 2010
Oh WOW! This is positively gorgeous. It's got a nice, modern, mechanical flair with the aluminum, but still keeps the classic, rustic feeling that your others have. Beautiful. :D

wow.. just wow... this is beautiful... and even moreso is the amount of time and effort put into it.... amazing. simply amazing.
bug-in-my-eye Featured By Owner Sep 11, 2010
incredible, just like your other work. It's amazing to see all the detail you put into your pieces. My only itching question is where you get the usb drives. Do you just go buy a cheap one and take off it's cover to make an extremely awesome replacement?
