Just fooling about.

Post by Reg9 » November 11th, 2013, 12:43 am

This is a prototype of a puzzle I designed. I think that the mechanism is novel, but not sure. Producing very many of these may not be practical...many hours. Just want to show it off. :)

What a great looking puzzle.

The tolerances and sight-lines are perfect.
This is a puzzle that many of us would love to try.

I hope you do get to produce a limited number ;)
Push, pull, twist, slide...........open! :)

Wow, that looks very impressive. You must have great metalworking experience and tools to build that safe.
Let us know when the next puzzle party in your area is due...

That looks incredible! I'd be very curious to see what the mechanism is like.

Thanks guys. That gives me some renewed motivation. You have me thinking on producing some (and maybe adding a few additional twists). If I do, I will contact you each in case you are interested in one.
Thanks again for your kindnesses.

That's great news. Keep us updated if you do decide to make some. And if you have one to play with, I'm sure if there's another puzzler nearby they'll be happy to give you feedback. Not sure where in the world you are, but great to see new designs, and the quality certainly looks to be very high

I'm sure there are more than the few that have commented here who would be interested in buying one. They look great! :)
