The other day I was at an antique barn and I found a 31 puzzle, I have never seen this puzzle but for 4 dollars why not. Its pretty dirty and the movement isn't great, but I thought it was a cool find. I also got two take apart puzzles, both appear to be hand made.

I already solved the horseshoes, but the other puzzle has me stumped.

That linked ring puzzle is one of my favorites.
There's a version called the Brain that has the equivalent of 8 rings.
It was great until I used WD-40 on it. Oops.

This is a very nice Chines Ring Puzzle. I once found one in a second hand store, mine is made of wood and string. It's actually quite similar to SpinOut.
