Isn't it just one of the corners that is the connector?

I don't know that much about skewbs, but I guess that if you remove the "pointy extention" from two cornerparts, so that you are left with only the parts that go into the mechanism, and glue them together.
I guess you can use either two small parts or one kernel and one small part or both kernels...

No, they are not just connected at a corner.

The two skewbs are connected all along one edge, so it involves 2 corners and two face centres of each skewb.

Oh, darn, I remembered the picture wrong...

But if they had been conected with just a corner, then my resoning would have been correct, right?

I just tested the theory as I had 2 spare skewbs...:
In that timescale I only managed to cause myself an injury and I am still nowhere near the completion: You have to shorten corners on 2 axels (with screws and springs).
I then cut one of the square faces diagonally, though you can't just superglue them at 90 degrees. I figure you must use milliput to join them, which will take overnight to dry. Hence the 30 min theory proved to be impossible (in my case) :(
Any other ideas?

I don't know who made that entry on the database but it wasn't me. Yes it is my puzzle but it takes me a lot longer than 30 minutes to make one. You need to connect 2 spiders together, slightly apart but exactly in the right position. This is certainly no 30 minute task. You also need 2 new centres with a 90* "bend".
