This is a followup to this earlier thread:
viewtopic.php?f=15&t=24080

There I presented all bandaged 3x3x3 which possibilities of twisting could be named with sets like <L F2 Ls2 Fs2>
Back then Bram pointed me towards some additional variants I missed.
Here they are all implemented in plastic.
Please note, that the specially marked face is glued to the core and therefore never can turn.
This also means, that these variants can't be implemented with the All-In-One Bandaged Cube.

The four variants (from left to right) are:
Bandaged 3x3x3 181000000 <Uw, R, L>
Bandaged 3x3x3 810C0400 <Uw, R, F>
Bandaged 3x3x3 200000007F <Uw, R>
Bandaged 3x3x3 4020000 <Uw, R, F, L>

Neat. I had a lot of fun figuring out how to solve <Uw, R, L> although I had to use a regular cube to emulate it.

Also, did you miss the barbell cube? That one you've obviously made, although it doesn't seem to be in this list. It can be viewed as <U D F2 B2 Fs>.

Thank you for your answer.

The signature you give here seems to describe the Double Barbell instead of the Barbell. I am not perfectly sure because there is a redundancy in that signature.
I would describe the Barbell like this: <U D F Fs>
I would describe the Double Barbell like this: <U D F2 Fs>

BTW: The term "Barbell Cube" ist not mine. I took it from this very old entry:
http://twistypuzzles.com/cgi-bin/puzzle.cgi?pkey=441

My Barbell Cube ist hidden here:
viewtopic.php?f=14&t=15016

I already built the Double Barbell Cube but haven't mentioned it explicitly. It is hidden here:
viewtopic.php?f=14&t=21654

Not sure I've seen this asked before... but do you have any idea just how many 3x3x3s (bandaged or otherwise) you have in your collection?

Nice work,
Carl

Currently 66 which includes the unbandaged cube and the 1x1x3-equivalent.
On top of that come the 13 variants which require bridges.
