Too lazy to build yourself an Enigma machine from a DIY kit? If you've got enough money, say, fifteen thousand dollars or so, why not just buy this original Enigma 3 machine off of eBay? The seller is in Germany and the auction ends on April 3rd. Frankly, we don't know how anyone is expected to resist this item when the owner makes sweet, sweet promises like: "ORIGINAL!!! KEIN NACHBAU!!! VOLL FUNKTIONSTUCHTIG!!!!".

I found a Navajo Code Talker practice machine at an anique shop in NM just last week (11/29/06). I was imopressed. Nice wood box with lid that closed over reel take up. Had a reel of paper tape with holes punched in it and a morse code dit dit thumb/finger operated switch attached by wires outside of the box. She wanted (bottom line) $800 for it. Anyone interested?
