Re: Wil Strijbos!!!

He was sold out by the time he replied to me for everything but the 4 piece puzzle, so I guess it will be a year or two until I get a new chance for the pachinko box. At least I have a few to enjoy for the time being. I finally got open the two dovetail cubes. Turns out I had the right move to open ...

Re: Wil Strijbos!!!

I am trying to restrain myself from jumping at all of them at once no, so for now I think I will attack them one by one. I will make a comment about the Dovetail no1 which is the only one I have picked up to try and solve. When I made the order, I was unsure about if I should get the dovetails or no...

Re: Wil Strijbos!!!

It was sent on may 18th, arrived today (yesterday was a national holiday though). So no complaints about the time. Customs only took 2 hours (but the tax was correctly calculated). The main part of delivery was 9 days between the package leaving the sender country, and arriving in my country. No ide...

Re: Wil Strijbos!!!

Finally got a reply to my email that I sent in april, but he is out of stock for everything now it seems. But at least I am added to the newsletter. No worries, I have a shipment in customs at the moment with a good number of his puzzles from Sloyd, so I should be set for a while when the import cal...

Re: Wil Strijbos!!!

Ahh, no Lotus of First Cross, which is still on my wishlist. I do have the Pachinco Box on my list also, but I just ordered Strijbos-puzzles for almost 1000€ two days ago, so I guess I should at least consider the price for 5 minutes before trying to order it. By the way, if anyone have any input of...

Re: Wil Strijbos!!!

Can you paste it? I have emailed him twice the last month, not gotten any reply nor the newletter. I must be doing something wrong. Yes, I have checked the spam. Edit: as long as he is not replying to me at all, maybe there is no point for me to even try to order anything even if he has the stock? A...

Re: Rainer Popp - Popplocks

Ah, no point in me sending him another email then to ask if he still has any. I still haven't gotten a reply back about his stock after 3 weeks, but I guess that's how it is. I choose to use all my hobby budget on Revomazes a few years ago, so I had to take a break from buying for a good while. I su...

Re: Rainer Popp - Popplocks

So from what I understand, there seem to be a case of replying when you get the newsletter email, and hope that you are lucky. Regarding the rest of the discussion, I suppose this is a good of a way of doing it as any. One could also argue that the "fair" alternative would be for him to offer the on...

Re: Rainer Popp - Popplocks

How does one get to buy these without resorting to auctions? Sign up for the newsletter on the Popplock website? And if so, how does he work? Does he regulary make batches of all his locks, or does he work on the next lock in the series, release it, sell out, then start with the nex one etc.? Basica...
