hi all,
this is the dino cylinder another limited edition.
plastic base and cover is chrome-plated.
the real chrome cover on it.
it will sell on ebay.

youtube: http://youtu.be/dIQ9I0wOPCQ

the chrome-plated is not easy to made it well,
many many step, and the last, need use hand to cut off some small scrap.
another handicraft in my cubes series

anyway, please enjoy it :lol:

Wow! I'd buy one of those in a heartbeat. Now you have to make a gold colored one and also a gold/silver Time Machine too. :)

maybe a bad news, because it is real metal cover on the cube, the turning worst than plastic, in the time machine case, too many parts running together, the turning maybe too hard.

but I still want a chrome-plated time machine :)

the chrome metal is very hard, the lube can not damage it.

now i read that is real metal!
so smaz if you can cover also the core parts
should be possible to use a "unlocking lube" (i dont know if this is the correct translation, the lube for cars).
this is too erosive for the plastic (demolished my first rubik's :cry: ), maybe is useful with chrome.....
you want to risk? :lol:

...I know him!

I'm back and I've switched on my Private Messaging.

Thank you for autographing a chrome Dino Cylinder for me.

I think you used "Ultra Buffing Technology" for these limited editions :)

I received my two today. Very very nice looking puzzles in the flesh and I was surprised how well they turned (I was expecting them to be pretty stiff). Excellent work Smaz.

But ... be very careful with signature. I literally turned mine a dozen times and the signature had rubbed off completely. I actually thought it was engraved into the chrome initially - my bad for not cchecking properly. Glad I bought two now, one for display only and the other to play around with. :D

sorry for the signature, I don't know how to keep the signature for long life. :oops:
I only know that how to turn smoothly. :lol:

How about a clear sticker covering it?

That is the only way I can think of. You can mess with clear nail polish, but a clear sticker works better IMHO.

It's beautiful by the way!

Received mine on Saturday! Beautiful shiny puzzle!! Thanks SmaZ!

Admired it on the shelf all weekend but didn't play with it as intended to try something else!
Every time I put my hand out to my Prof Pyraminx, I suddenly shy away! I am petrified of it!

Instead I ended up scrambling the Dino cylinder - it moves well and apart from a little wobble when I couldn't remember how the colour scheme went, I solved it in about 20 minutes!

Very nice puzzle - the shape shifting makes it look much tougher than it is!

Thanks again SmaZ! Well worth the very small fee!

Smaz, after visiting Korea for a week and feeling like I could not communicate with anyone at all without an English speaker at hand, I want to say I know how you feel. But you're doing very well with English, so I can't say that. :)

Smaz kindly sent me one the other day. It looks fantastic. I lubed it with petroleum jelly (yeh yeh I know) along the edges where it rubs. It now moves really well.

stickers update:

the green color sticker seem not to match the chrome cylinder.

The green sticker will be replaced by the black color sticker.
