I hate you. :lol: :lol: :lol:

I really want to know how you could possibly afford to do this. You've got some crazy puzzles in there. Oh, and I'm curious about the Master Heximate and Celtic Cube. I don't know who won the ones on eBay, but how come you also got them too? I kind of thought the point of eBay auctions was for getting a high price on unique puzzles, unless something was established before hand.

I'm happy to see that the Celticube and the Master Heximate got there safely.

Claus is one of my best customers (he's got around half of the puzzles I've sold on eBay!), and when I got an email from him immediately after my last two auctions asking if I'd be willing to make a second copy for him, I just couldn't say no. I made sure to ask the winner of the auctions for permission, of course. (It was Frank Tiex both times. He's my other amazing returning customer.)

I got the idea for my Twisty Puzzles a la Vi video a few days after ordering the parts for the Master Heximate, and since I wanted to show the whole process of making a puzzle in SolidWorks, I decided to make it about the Master Heximate, and show the physical construction as well. The Master Heximate shown in this picture is the one I made in the video.

So only in special cases will I make and sell a second copy of a puzzle. Thanks for the question.

My mind = BLOWN.

And I thought MY collection was over the top.

You make me feel very good about my puzzle collecting. :lol:

Seriously, clauswe, I've been watching your collection since your I have a dream posts in Nov./Dec. 2010. Now, after seeing your April 2011 report, I have to comment.

Your collection is a dream come true for most twisty puzzlers on here. I've been introduced to a great number of weird and wonderful puzzles through your collection photos I didn't even know existed. Can you tell us a bit about your favorite custom puzzles, and why?

I hope you have as much fun with them at home as we are having seeing your collection pics out here.

Cheers!
