Where is the best place to buy puzzle spare parts. I am in the midst of modding a Teraminx and a small piece has gone missing. I have actually succeeded in building a new piece for the puzzle but I'm still interested to know where on earth I could buy spare parts for any puzzle.

I'm not sure you can. I have had to get replacement parts for 2 puzzles in the past, one from Ayi, one from Witeden. I contacted them about it, and they sent me the pieces for free...as long as I bought another puzzle to cover the postage costs...

I have often thought it might be a good idea to start buying puzzles just to sell as spare parts, but I'm just not sure the market for them is big enough.

Someone was doing this a while back but they seem to have disappeared now. Although expensive my advice is to always purchase two puzzles for a project. You can usually find a use for the remaining parts (open puzzle, bandaged etc)
