Hi to all twistypuzzlers, I want to show you my recent mod. It's a simple mod with the use of several missing link.

I obatin some not expensive missing link with the help of Chris Kruger. He found some not costy missing link for me and took them to Las Vegas the World Championship. And I asked another friend, Chang Fangyuan to bring them back to me. They're really helpful, I don't know how should I repay them!

I want to make one very long & one very short missing link with several missing link I got. Actually the work is not so hard to do so. There are only two procedure. The first part is to take them all apart. Actually this is the hardest part as those missing link I got, they're all different version. Some of them are easy to take apart, but some made in Brazil version is nearly impossible to do, as the core are fixed deadly. So I can just cut this one......

The second procesure is to connect the pieces together. This part is easier than I thought! I found some abs plastic pipe from a China web store. I bought a very long one. Cut it into the measurement I need. Sanding all pieces to make them smooth sliding. And connect all the core & pieces together. At last, stick the logo back to the top & bottom, finished!

This is just a simple mod and not hardly to compare with all of your great craftsmen. But I think sharing is good anyway. Hope you like it.

Very cool looking mod/remake. If I ever find a few inexpensive missing link puzzles I might just have to
do this myself.
