 Post subject: Tony Fisher's (signed) TRUNCATED OCTAMINX auction

A 10 day auction starts on Wednesday 26th July for one of my Truncated Octaminx. This is another puzzle I was making several years ago. I think it was Dieter Gebhardts idea to truncate an Octaminx. It actually worked out better than I expected so I went on and made a small batch. All these are long gone and this is the only remake I've made so far. This is the first I have ever signed. I shall probably make a couple more next year.

That is so cute Tony, another job well done. I really want one of your puzzles :(

Edit: The video is as small as the puzzle. 8-)

Pembo: I think that's an error. I bet it was originally ment to be longer. Right Tony?

The video is 49 seconds long. I didn't really know what else to show. It's certainly not one of my favourite puzzles but I try and make cheaper ones from time to time for those who can't afford the really expensive stuff. That's the plan though I guess none have actually gone cheaply yet.

Ah. See, the first time I loaded it, it was a whole 2 seconds long. :P

[edit] Looks a bit tight, or am I just seeing things?
