We received several requests to remake this classic design by Stewart Coffin, featured as design number 185 in the Ap-Art book and challenged by the author to "Try your luck on this one - or test your patience!" As a follow up to the previous Blind Slot Machine release in 2005, this edition features a clear acrylic window to view your progress during the solve and a removable top panel which will turn the puzzle into a "Blind Slot Machine" which significantly increases the difficulty.
Construction features a shouldered Ash box and individually beveled pieces made from American Black Walnut, and you can choose from either a Wenge or Jatoba top panel. 75 copies were made, each signed and dated. Slot Machine (2023) ships in an unsolved configuration.

Craftsmanship is superb as always! Haven't solved it yet been busy but it's been fun so far!
Again with perfect tolerances. The solution is precise and exact. The addition of the top piece to make it a blind solve makes it even better.
I love these tricky packing puzzles, and Slot Machine is a fun one. The restricted opening can make it challenging to see and manipulate pieces in the box, and this brilliant version provides a removable top so you can decide on the difficulty. Very thoughtful design.
