I was inspired by the Bermuda series to buy some cheap cubes and make my first Mod. It's my first mod ever so I thought I might share it. I had to cut and paste to do it. I have had the one with the Fisher Cube U & D layers made for some time but I finished the one with the Fisher Cube E layer tonight.

Cheers,
Burgo.

Hi, Thanks for your encouragement. It really was a simple mod, anyone can do it, and you get 2 for 1. The resulting cubes are interesting to play with.
This must have been done before, what is the name? If there is no name I think it should be called a Fisher's Wall Cube (type A and type B).

For my next Mod: I have bought 3 mini Dain Shengs and I am going to attempt a 4x4x4 Evil Twins :D .

And I have been wanting to do these ever since I saw them:
viewtopic.php?f=15&t=21153
viewtopic.php?f=9&t=22010

And I have also wanted to do a few of these:
viewtopic.php?f=14&t=21641

But none of those are my own idea :( , the Fisher's Wall Cubes were my own idea, although I have since seen one of them on the Bo Hu Sim.
Cheers,
Burgo.

Very clean mods! However, why not just switch the middle layers of the two puzzles? It would have yielded the exact same product, since you started out with a Fisher cube and a normal 3x3x3.

Hi,
Thanks for the info Marcom. It is interesting to note in the description of the Cutter Cube that the Wall Cube is used to help describe it, it does remind me a lot of the Wall Cube.

I had to cut and paste because of the diameter of the centre sphere. It is different in both cubes. Perhaps someone knows compatable ones that directly exchange? Nothing that I have does, the Fisher's has a smaller internal diameter.

Cheeers,
Burgo.

Sorry, I should have noticed that in the first picture. I do own a fisher cube and a 3x3x3 with interchangeable pieces, of a brand I am probably not allowed to mention.
