I was alerted a while back about a new type of puzzle that was available at a local specialty woodworking shop. After waiting for them to come in (then after a lot of other distractions) I finally have the chance to show them off to the forum. The puzzles come in a pack of 2:

Here they are with a Scramble Cube for size comparison:

The first of the two is very easy to solve:

It merely has a secret screw at the head. Once you unscrew it, you can easily remove the nut. The second is a little bit more difficult:

You have to hold the bolt and unscrew by the nut. As you can see, the bolt splits into 2 pieces. They don't lie flush under the nut, so if you try to move the nut then the bolt will actually turn a bit against itself (one part of the straight piece will hinge against the piece with the inner bit at an angle) and the move will be blocked. This is a bit difficult to explain. I also made a video
that might be a bit more insightful. I might be offering these to those who cannot get them for themselves if I get enough requests and I can confirm that they are still available for purchase (I might have to order them specially). They cost $20 CAD for a set of 2 plus shipping to your location from Manitoba, Canada (quotes available upon request, but it might take a week to reply with the quote. Rest assured, I will let you know once I get your PM though). As I said, they have to be ordered specially (between 1 week and 1 month wait) and I will wait 1 week from the time of this posting to order, just to make sure that people have time to get their requests in.
