It's so hard to tell that these are just custom puzzles. They look production (except for the fisher cube, I can see the extensions)

Are you saying you don't believe that they are custom made? or that they just look so good it's hard to tell? They really do look production made...did smaz claim them to be handmade? I probably missed that part.

They're handmade for sure. I think he was just saying there looked very good.

They're great for sure. Keep it up!

Excellent quality. Transparent parts are very hard to work with.
Well done!

Welcome to the Forum, also Great mods!!! AMAZING!!! They do look production made and to ahcive that in a custom build is a extremely great compliment. Very nice and very clean!!! Looking forward to more.

P.S. How'd you get the name, I have a hunch but I'm not 100% sure.

Yes, I was saying that they just look really good.

I've got the Truncated cube, and the fisher's cube (no, they are not for sale) I passed on the House. There was just something about it I didn't care for. I can't explain really.

I was playing with them last night at a CNY dinner, and they drew a lot of attention from tables near by. I have one comment though about the craftsmanship. There are a few places that you can see the gluing and I was wondering if glue remover on a cotton swab, or fingernail polish would take off the excess without hurting the cube? Image you can see it on the blue tiles.

I'd also like to post a picture of another of Smaz's creations for you to look at. Image.

I have never seen one that was so nicely done. This is a mod from a rainbow cube as you are all aware. The grooves line up perfectly, and the balance is brilliant. It is worth every penny spent on it! If one shows up again on ebay, it won't be money wasted.

I assume you mean nail polish remover, in which case I would advise you not to use it. It (usually) contains acetone or ethyl acetate, neither of which are very nice to cubes. I wouldn't have any idea on glue removers though.

I did mean that. thanks Danny. I didn't know if it would hurt the cube or not. I'm glad I asked.
