Make your own steampunk flash drive on the cheap

Have a pile of brass clock gears laying around? Looking for a weekend project? Why not build yourself a nice steampunk flash drive?

Basically, this guy consists of gears, screws and pipe. Oh, and a flash drive of course. It doesn't look exceedingly difficult to make, but you obviously have to be a little bit handy. But once you're done it's safe to say you'll have one of the most unique portable data storage devices around. And isn't that worth the effort?
