Please read the following carefully to satisfy yourself of the parameters of operation of our replica demonstration enigma machine……

What our Enigma offers:-

  1. An authentic 3 rotor machine in looks, feel, sound, size and weight.
  2. A demo facility to encrypt and de-crypt up to 20 characters using an on board computer “Turing Machine” that replicates the Enigma machine procedures of inputting/outputting of plain and cypher text.
  3. Three numbered indexing rotors that can be set at ground settings, ten sets of stecker plugs that can be unplugged and re-positioned, any letter to any other letter.
  4. Realistic feel and pressure required to each key press causing a one position movement of the fast rotor and the illumination of a letter on the lamp panel.
  5. The built in Enigma flaw, no letter can cypher unto itself.
  6. Fully portable (weighs 12 kilos) with leather carrying strap and powered by an internal battery just as the original enigma machine. (The battery is rechargable, a spare battery and charger are included).
  7. External wooden box construction faithfully copied including the signature metal locking latch and double position hinges.
  8. A well built and reliable machine that is already in use at Bletchley Park, Barcelona University, and Kings College Cambridge.

What our machine does not offer!

  1. Removable wired rotors
    Our rotors index through all of the 26 positional settings but do not come out as they do in the original machine.
  2. Active stecker plugs
    They can be re-positioned but do not alter the outcome of any illuminated lamp.
  3. Our machine is a stand alone demo machine. Any generated cyphered text can only be de-crypted by that machine at that time within the 20 character limit.

All in all a beautifully made, hand built and truly unique replica that will educate, replicate and fascinate in equal measures. We have produced an iconic enigma machine demo replica at a very affordable price……
