Hey guys,
Before I joined the forum, I made a couple of easy builds and mods. I have a link to them below. If someone can upload them to Twistypuzzles, that would be great.

photobucket.com/picturesofpuzzles

EDIT: I finally have the photos uploaded. Thanks for all of the advice.

My sticker mods. I know that one of them has been done before.

My 1x1 Minx

Image
My 1x1 Tuttminx

Image
My extended 5x5x5 and 3x4x5

Image
My giant cardboard 1x2x3 rubik's cube

Thanks,
ducttape

A useful tip, when viewing an album on photobucket you can hover over a photo and then click on the yellow box next to 'IMG Code'
Then you can paste that onto twisty puzzles and the photo will show up. Anyways, interesting 1x2x3. How did you make it?

Thanks for the tip. When i tried to upload the photos, they were extremely large. I'm not sure how to make them smaller. About the 1x2x3. I made it out of a lot of cardboard. the "axle" is a k'nex piece. I covered the rest of the puzzle with masking tape. I'm not sure if I will sticker it though.

You can re-size them in Photobucket. Hover over the image, click on edit, and then select the Resize icon.

I resized all of them so that they were really small, but when I looked at the preview, they were still extremely large.

I've had this problem before. I think that TP caches the images, so if you just re-size them on Photobucket but they keep the same names, then TP does not re-load the smaller files. There may be another way around this, but I have had to re-load the files to PB with different file names, re-size them and then re-link to the new files.

Thanks for the tip. I followed it and I finally have the photos uploaded at the top. I'm happy now :D

Thanks,

Could you post some mechanism pictures of the 1x2x3 if you have them?

If you're talking about the sizes of the photos, I've been able to resize them now. But thanks for the advice.
Any way, I forgot 2 other puzzles that I made. Their pretty crappily made :? but they each only took about an hour which explains alot. They were also made by extending cubes with ducttape and cardboard.

Was the 1x4x4 made out of a 4x4x4?

Yes. I think it was made out of a mini qj 4x4. If you go to the topic about my collection, you can see a qj 4x4 in one of the rows. That 4x4 is now gone...

Hey guys,
Most of you know that I like to make cheap puzzle builds with just ducttape and cardboard. Because most of them aren't that big of a deal, I've decided to use this thread to post any builds that I've recently made. This thread will be on going, so I will continue to use it whenever I make another build.

To start, I'll be presenting my 1x1x2 Knob Cube. I know that there has been a mass-produced puzzle similar to this one with hexagons. I stickered this thing with duct tape, obviously. If you have any questions, feel free to ask.
