Split Flap Digit

I've always been a fan of split flap displays but they're nearly impossible to find now, and frustratingly expensive to procure. I saw this design on Thingiverse and thought that I could make one, too. The pictures and video are from the wear-in process; the slurry is an abrasive compound for wearing in the acrylic gears.
