curious how much tuning you had to do to get your Mini Starminx that smooth...
Did it require a lot of breaking in?

Mine is quite hard to turn, but I haven't worked on it that much...

Very nice Clauwse! I can't wait until I order my Rhombultimate extentions for my NOMECH Pentultimate. How do you have two Master Pentultimates!?! :lol: :shock:

Work it in for a few days, then when you think you're happy with it, lube it. Lube is amazing on this puzzle.

Awesome puzzles clauwse! Is that the size of the Master Pent that Tom will/may be releasing, or is it going to be sized like the mini puzzles?

I believe TomZ's Mini Pentultimate will be the size of the other Mini Dodecahedra, but I can't be certain.

I'm assuming neither of these are new puzzles. Am I correct in assuming TomZ already posted about these?

Rentlix, I think the Rhombultimate is a new puzzle.

Derek, I don't use washes or springs. I used only screws M3-10 with very strong tension. No play between centers and core.

Where did you you get Tomz's Master PentUltimate and Starminx at because its not on shapeways? They both look like they were made from plastic.

Both are 3D printed, WSF.

Here is the link to the starminx on shapeways.

for the Master PentUltimate you should contact TomZ (you need to do it for the starminx aswell, but you can see it on shapeways)

The Rhombultimate is available from me for $109 (add $10 for black, add 19% VAT if you're inside the EU).
The Mini Master Pentultimate is not available currently because the print I received was bad. Sigurd insisted on getting one so I let him, but his copy does not meet my quality standards either.
