I have problems with the last edges of Oskar's Gear Octahedron.
I found a tutorial of Calvin's Corner-Turning Octahedron which was quite helpful. But Oskar's Version has some additional edges which are flipped opposite than the "wheel edges".
Can anybody help?

Can you provide a picture of the edges that are flipped?

The 4 edges on the vertical middle layer are solved, while the remaining 8 edges are flipped... :?:

Try this: face the vertex which has all 4 adjacent edges flipped wrong, and use this algorithm: R U R U R U (highlight the text).

Put the corner with the 4 flipped edges around it in front and do (R,U)x3. It should work.

I think RedKB Has a Gear Cube tutorial, and this is just a shape mod of it, I suggest a look on over there. I can't remember which gear cube it is that has the inner gears stickered like yours does though.

Ben got there first. I just changed the words and kept the algorithm. I knew the algorithm beforehand, but you should give Ben the credit.

Thats true. Thanks Ben. And thanks to everybody for your support!
I guess I hold the puzzle wrong the first time. (The vertex could be horizontal or vertical).
Have a good time :-)
