I finally made myself a copy of most of my custom puzzles, so I am ready to present my collection. If anyone has any questions or wants more information let me know! I own about 20 more puzzles, but they either do not fit with the collection or are not worth displaying.

Yes it is a hand cast professor pentagonal prism designed by Scott Bedard. However the designed was flawed and the puzzle is very unstable. It turns but you have to be very careful or it might explode. Its more of an expensive and pretty looking paperweight :lol:

I agree, the pentagonal prism is such a simple design and would be a great mass produced puzzle. Maybe I should get in contact with Lee Tutt about this.

I guess you don't like to keep the boxes of the puzzle, cuz I see no boxes on your photos.

The alignment by color looks impressive. I should do the same ...

What is the 3x3x3 in the middle of the image with the NxNxNs?

That is a promotional cube from a friend for Cisco computer systems

I still am looking for a good domino and floppy, does that one come in center cap fashion as well?

I do admittedly keep the boxes; however, my collection only has one true rule:

Every puzzle must be played with and eventually solved, no puzzles are just for looking at in my collection if it functions well.

For me puzzles were meant to be played with, so no...no boxes will be found on display in my collection.

Casting is not done often now because 3D printing is much less expensive, but most custom puzzles used to be made by printing master pieces then casting copies using urethane resin and silicon rubber for the molds.

Indeed. And don't forget many puzzles were made by casting masters built from hand, rather than 3D printed. A very relevant example is Aleh's Mini Master Octahedron.

My kilominx rhombic triacontahedron, was made using my own handmade master. Only one piece though. Aleh is truly the master of masters. I also still own a Trajber's octahedron that was built completely out of epoxy.

I picked this up last week at a garage sale for $15! It is a watch display case which lights up and rotates. It looks great both day and night. I am going to get a new sheet of acrylic where the Casio logo is that says "Twisty Puzzles". I posted a little video of it on my YouTube channel, link in my signature.

The casio display is really cool, I would buy it for $50 if I can find one near my home. Great finding!

I bought all of this on eBay for only $20 last week. I think it was quiet the find. There was one item of particular interest I spotted in the lot, which was a full abs print of Adam's Dino Cube. This puzzle looks and turns beautifully and is definitely a great collection piece.

All those puzzles for only $20, I have to say that was really a bargain. Congratulation for such great find!
