I too looked at this sketch
and after studying it found
it complex and difficult
to build. I was looking for
something much simpler with
easy to find parts.

Possibly The creator should
assemble the parts into a kit
and sell the kit but I bet it would
then not cost as cheap as you want.

It seems best to find a used professional geophone
somewhere because that is the only way
you will find one small and compact
enough to be easily transportable.

The creator of this mechanical circuit
seems quite talented and has the tenacity
to find the necessary raw materials.

If you are serious enough to recreate
this idea then I would be anxious
to hear your results in great detail.

I think Chris is the creator but not certain.
