Default Latest "puzzle"...

This is my latest work. More of a mechanical gadget than a puzzle, but one that you definitely can't open without the solution!
And funnily enough, you make your own solution...
If you're interested, see my gallery page...

Thumbs up

Very cool!
It looks like a week long project. I don't think I could resist looking at the back to see the discs turning.

The whole project is clever Bruce, but, how did you divide and engrave the knob?

Thanks for your replies, lads.
The dial was created in DrawPlus. Made a 2-1/2" diameter 24 point star, connected the tips across a circle, Made a 2-1/4" circle to blot out most of the lines, copied the rest of the lines, pasted, rotated.
Done. 48 divisions. Make the divisions white, everything else black, print it out, a quick spray with fixative and glue, slap it on the dial.
The actual knob itself was just left smooth.
That was the easy part...

Cube, maybe the most simple one.
Not so accurate, but works.
I enjoyed.
Thank you, Bruce san.

(I will sand it later)

Nice looking cube Benny san. Now are you ready for a more challenging one?

Difficulty

I found a really big mistake.
If I fix it, other part go bad (how do I say ?).

Also I understood again that sanding has two sides.
1)Making surface smooth.
2)Making joint(?) LOOSE.

This is the same as "Teaching a sutra to Buddha" to you all members...

Accurate and careful... good way, but difficult.

> Now are you ready for a more challenging one?
Well... no and yes. I will try to make a same one.
More accurate one.
