  • Machinist's Puzzles

    I may be suffering from CRS, but I seem to remember a post regarding a couple of quick and easy macninist's puzzles. One had to do with a bolt and a nut. I've done a search and ca't seem to find any such thing. does anyone have any ideas or can anyone point me in the right direction.

    And, lest I forget, I want to wish each of you a Very Merry Christmas and my hopes for a Prosperous New Year for you all.

    Thrud, we're having meatloaf for Christmas dinner.

      Some of them are shown in Joe Martin's Sherline book on tabletop machining. One of those looks like a nut is welded onto a bolt yet you can separate the two.

      Here's a link to another:

            Meatloaf? Hummmm! Might not be bad---if you mix a jar of Picante sauce in with the other ingredients.

                You should get down on your hands and knees and THANK GOD ALMIGHTY that my sister ain't cookin' fer ya. Or you might be wanting santa to bring new chompers for you and your kin, and maybe a stomach pump.

                I happen to have a 3 speed stomach pump (variable displacement) if anyone does happen to catch a wiff of my sister's cooking this holiday season. You will know right away by the sudden and uncontrollable purging at both ends of your digestive tract...but I digress.

                Try these Burr puzzles for extra brain damage: http://www.research.ibm.com/BurrPuzzles/

                make them in wood or metal, they would still be nifty!

                  Guys if you are interested in Burr puzzles try this web site after you visit the IBM site that thrud recommended.
                  www.johnrausch.com/PuzzleWorld Also get the CD "The Puzzling World of Polyhedral Dissections." It will keep you busy for a few hours. The puzzles can be machined in Al or brass or even wood.
