Second and third puzzles of the day:

The Square-1 was made for fun to see how small a square-1 could be made (it uses the regular mechanism) and the micro prisminx was to make it affordable to more people. I will put absolutely no markup on the square-1 and the prisminx is about 20$ total.

What surprised me is that the micro prisminx turns smoother than my original Prisminx. Maybe that's because it's polished, but I'm not sure. If you want one you should seriously consider the polished option, it's truly amazing on small puzzles. But don't take polished on the square-1 the pieces are too small for the polishers (i tried :lol: )
Overall I'm very happy with both puzzles, as they both spin pretty good, and I think it's also due to the fact I used these M1Screws to hold them together (1 for the sq-1 and 2 for the prisminx)

They look great. Is there any chance you can design a keychain corner with a loop for each? They'd be great for that purpose.

Oh, I see you received the logo stickers as well. It looks nice on your cube.

But of course your new puzzles are really nice too.
I'm happy that the outcome is so good looking. Even with my not so nice micro SQ-1 stickers. Or is it another one?

I'm pretty sure I will buy a micro Prisminx from you! I love that puzzle!

I'm also putting logos on my big custom cubes (but I guess everyone will have noticed that within an hour ;) )

They are truly amazing, thanks a lot Oliver !

Affordable Prisminx! Awesome! It looks like I know what I'll be treating myself to next month... :)

The Square-1 also looks very nice. My favourite thing about these two puzzles is that they use screws. :lol:

Where else can I buy the proper screws for these puzzles? The ebay auction you linked is trying to charge me $100 for shipping.

Is there any way I can get one assembled and stickered? M1 screws are very hard to find.

Hey, I'm sorry I don't offer assembled puzzles anymore since I have a small amount of free time at college and this is saved us to study, and a little bit of design.

You can get m1 screws at this adress for quite cheap:

M1 screws

All my micro puzzles use M1 screws and this package says it includes 100 but there are about 200-300 in there =)

Oh my.. how utterly cool.

I am going to get me one Square-1 I think.. does one assemble it the same way as the regular square 1 or is there something special I need to watch out for? Never assembled one before, so.. I don't want to ruin the poor little fella now :)


VERY well done, I love all your little puzzles :D

It is indeed assembled the same as a square-1. Be careful to not bump up too old topics (it doesn't bother me since it's my topic, but it's not the case with those who have seen it in the past), you can always send me a PM next time :)

Ahhh yes. I will do that if I have questions about building this. I didn't want to start a new topic either, but this seemed -just- not too old ;)


Sorry folks if it was! :)
