Here is another extremely difficult burr along the lines of the Binary and Ternary burrs, and Cutler's cube puzzle. Cubloc bridges the gap between those puzzle, being very difficult to solve and disassemble but without the predictability of the n-ary burrs. The six pieces interact with the cage to form various gates which interact in a complicated way. It is exceptionally difficult to disassemble, with many dead ends and wrong turns. This puzzle is no joke. Be forwarned!
The construction of this puzzle is very nice, with pieces milled from solid wood. Unfortunately, wide swings in humidity during manufacture caused tolerances to be off and the box to be too loose. Still a very nice and eminantly solvable puzzle, and if you live in a high humidity area it should operate perfectly. I've discounted the price accordingly; this puzzle should have sold for $100 more given the amount of labor it took to make.
