I want to take apart my red Eitans star and lube it, is there a disassembly and assembly video on how to do so? If not can someone tell me the steps?

For a puzzle that complex I wouldn't advise to take it apart. If you use a few drops of Maru lube around it (just turn a layer and open it up a tad, drop a drop in) it should work really well :)


Or is it catching really badly?

I agree, taking apart and re-assembling a puzzle of this complexity is not for the faint-hearted. Just try to insert some lube (try using a syringe like CrazyBad uses) while it is assembled.

"It turns so well, that not only does it need no force to turn, it also has automatically move completion (meaning no corner cutting), features the possibility of turning sides on the back without cube rotations, and has built in sentient memory of previous moves to allow one to easily undo mistakes. "

It can also scramble and solve itself, without requiring any of your effort. And if you solve it, it gives you an authentic certificate. :lol:

And it doesn't have a two-layer counterpart.



By the way, I thoroughly approve of this conversation.
