  • Another pencil puzzle revisited

    Here is my version of the pencil puzzle. I made a few nail puzzles for practice before trying the pencil puzzle. I learned a few things on the nails that helped with the pencil. It is interesting and fun to see the reaction people have when they see them. Everyone wants to know how it is done but that is something I will not tell.

    Bill, nice job. I really like the ones with a nail in them.

      Those are pretty cool Bill, I'll have to give that a go in the near future.

          Looks good Bill. We may have to put these in the Bragging section.

            Really nice Bill,

            Should we start considering them like a secret handshake or something?

            These are way cool.

            And I was so off in my assessment of the method used I'm almost embarassed

            I imagine you can make the nail ones small enough to carry in your pocket, or whatever, maybe mini ones with small nails & small holes. We could start doing something similar to Carter and his stamp puzzles, just for the "phun" of it

            I'll probably have to make a few at some point, just because I love bugging people by making them scratch their head and going "What the hell?? How did he do that???" And then not giving them the solution (I encourage intelligence)


            Thanks to whomever started this on the forum (can't remember right now)
            it's turning into something we can have fun with.

            Regards,

                I guess we low earthlings don't get to have the secret unless we figure it out for ourselves?

                  Actually Grizz - Hints to the secret were given in another thread. Make ya work for it now. I gotta get out to the shop and make a few for upcoming B-Days. I don't turn or I'd do the apple/arrow. Thats neat also.

                    Marcel, I do have a small one that I do carry around in my pocket. I didn't make it for that reason, it was just the first one I made to see if it would work. It is real "phun" to go into BORG or other such store and drive the associates in there nuts with it. Sometimes I ask them if they have a flexible bit to drill the holes in it. Some of them think I am serious. I had about 5 or 6 employees in BORG standing around trying to figure it out in stead of helping customers. Maybe that's why I can't get anyone to help me when I go in there, they are somewhere playing games or something.

                      The process with pics was posted on Sunday evening.

                          Thanks everyone... Mia also was very gracious in letting me know the 'secret' was out.

                            None Linda. You need to find the right heat temp so it shrinks but doesn’t put a hole in the wrap but the tape doesn’t shrink or tear.

                            What thickness of film seems to work the best for puzzles?
                            The bags seem easier on the surface.
                            But the film seems like it is more versatile on size variations.

                            Regulations are 150 square feet, this will be 144 square feet so we are good. He’s making it that size Since the sheets are 4’ wide. And the Shelves need to be 4” above my head!! It will be very specific.

                            As a framer, we have a shrinker wrapper at ArtCrafters. Very simple. Film on a roller, sealer attached, just roll off enough film, seal the film, insert object, seal other end and shrink with a heat gum. We also use Uline as a source. Not sure where our unit can from as it was with the shop when...

                            I would make the shed 1" less than the size permits are required for. THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS TOO MUCH SPACE....
