As shown by the previous releases we crafted from solid wood in its intended rectilinear form, 2-in-1 is one of our favorite burr puzzles. Eric recently had the idea to try the same assembly in precision milled round metal. The result is profound, a reinvention that adds significant difficulty and results in a beautiful, hefty metal sculpture.
This puzzle ships unassembled. The solution is available upon request.
Handling Metal Puzzles
A great classic puzzle, made especially difficult due to the dexterity aspects of the solve. Eric is kind enough to enclose rubber bands to help with the assembly, and I definitely used some! Better yet, get a 3D printed jig to help. Ask on the Mechanical Puzzles Discord :-).
Quality and tolerances as always were brilliant.
That last piece shifting into place on reassembly was so satisfying.
Great fit, looks immaculate solved next to the wooden version! Felt like a bit of a different solve as well.
