That is quite possibly the most beautiful collection I've ever seen - your puzzles are amazing.

Beautiful puzzles! I love the metal 5x5. Never saw one like that before.
What are those two brass things that look like a cannon and an engine block?

Wow, those are cool! A little to rich for my blood tho. I can't believe they have a 4-cylinder engine. And that ferris wheel is cool. I can't imagine sitting there playing with the thing too much tho, but they sure are a work of beauty.

Amazing collection and my grandfather builds scale engines, some run on compressed air, some on gas.
This is made out of an old air compressor.

Also, do the metal puzzles turn well?

These puzzles are beautiful, and the fact they're made from metal only makes it better. :mrgreen:

When I opened the page, I only saw the first picture and thought you had arranged lump sugar to look like puzzles. :D

A wonderful collection, I am very envious,

and i do believe that the 3x6x6 came from here: http://www.shapeways.com/model/63132/Cubic%203x3x6.html

though i may be wrong.

The two middle layers of the 3x3x6 look 3D printed (I believe he uses a SD300) and the outer layers look like they were taken from a C4Y cubic 3x3x5. So I don't think that's Adams 3x3x6 design.

I'm pretty sure those parts didn't come from an SD300. They look just like the parts in the earlier pictures (like this one) which are undoubtedly FDM, judging from the surface texture.

But I agree with the assessment, it looks like a clever extension on the 3x3x5 by splitting the middle layer.

wd40 wouldnt work very well for long...you would be better off using a fine charcoal powder as this is used in brass locks for lubrication ...have used it myself and it does work

chin_s,

Are you making the metal cubes yourself? If yes, are you selling any? if no, where did you get them from?
