Edge Gear Octahedron
Above:Solved
Click a thumbnail to see its larger version and description.
A skewb diamond with gears on six edges.

One year after the Edge Gear Cube (see the separate entry) the inventor applied the same concept to a skewb.
It combines the moves of a skewb diamond with the edge gear turns of the previous puzzle, although this time only the 6 edges along a single skewb cut have gears. The inventor chose the different pattern of gears so that a simple skews turn could maintain the ability to make the gears turn. He also added some stored gear parts on the other two face centers to make them all the same and possibly add some extra challenge.
In addition to the expected moves, there are some extra jumbling moves. One allows three of the skewb moves and makes the puzzle act like a bandaged skewb, while the other allows a turn around the middle. The jumbling angle is the same for both, the same angle as for a helicopter cube, but in opposite directions. Please refer to images 5-6.
Edge length: 72 mm
