Anyone here good at wire puzzles? I bought this wire puzzle over half a year ago and I can't solve it. It's driving me crazy. So I'm looking for people who can solve wire puzzles.

I guess it depends. Send a picture of the puzzle, maybe someone has seen it before.

The majority of my puzzles are wire puzzles, so I can probably help you.
PM me if you would like.

OK... I'll take a picture of the puzzle soon. But I'll describe it first. There are two "objects" that are "connected". One of them is in the shape of a hand. The other is a triangle that "repeats" into itself... triangle with another triangle inside it, with another inside that, and so on. I'll try to take a picture.

It sounds like a puzzle in which every additional "repeat" doubles the amount of moves necessary to solve it. I'm sure it doesn't look like either of the links below, but the concept may be similar:

Ah, metal puzzles that you must disconnect... I hate those kinds of puzzles, almost as much as I hate assembly puzzles :D I guess you can't really speedsolve these things, unless you are doing it as a dexterity puzzle...

:lol: oOoO. metal puzzles, i like em- i like some of them, lol. i remember a while back my cousin had some metal puzzles that were copper. i remember some like one of them was 2 "W" 's connected. the "W" 's was connected to itself...that was the only one i solved by myself. i also remember a puzzle looking like deer antlers and another puzzle that was an "S". the 2 "S" 's was connected by the hook of the "S". that one drove my nuts. but my cousin said he lost them and i'm always trying to find them. if anyone knows what i'm talking about and where i can get them, please, let me know!

yes you can speed solve the patience puzzle. I have quite a few of these. You can speed solve metal puzzles, and packing puzzles. My son and I use a stack mat and have fun speed solving all my puzzles.

I have a very large wire puzzle collection, maybe over 300 pieces.
