I have the 7 move burr (http://www.sloyd.fi/aluminum-burr-moves ... p-927.html) but have been looking for the 10 move one (http://www.sloyd.fi/aluminum-burr-moves ... p-928.html) for quite some time now. Wil does do occasional production runs of older puzzles, but I assume that's based on how many people ask/bug him about it. In this case, probably not nearly so many as for his more popular puzzles.

Anyway, I'll pay a good price for this if anyone can part with theirs. Thanks for reading.
One is up on PP now
https://www.puzzleparadise.net/auction_ ... _id=104465

Good luck if still interested
I appreciate that pointer. US$200 already, and likely to go higher (especially if I jumped in now!). Too rich for my blood :-(. I'll just be patient and wait for Wil/Street Wise to make more some day. It last sold for US$66 on sloyd.fi, but will be less direct from Wil when the time comes.
Congratulations to the deep pockets of the people willing to bid on it now!

Thanks again.

Wait a little mark wil will make again the patchinko and the egg I don't know about the burr but wait it's a good choice and maybe one will be in the auction for not too much .

If anyone has solved the pachinko box and would like to give me a nudge in the right direction, I’m stuck on a part midway through. PM me?
Thanks
Andy

Never mind, I solved it! With an embarrassing amount of hints. Oh well, this puzzle is ingenious, and clearly I am not a genius.

That one took a while. I was stumped more than once for ...ages!

The Pachinko box one was legitimately humiliating when I figured it out. I'm assuming we're talking about the same perceived roadblock.

speaking of ages, though. I'm stumped getting the first piece out.

Every step was a roadblock for me. I honestly don’t think there was a single step I figured out all by myself. Shame.

I had zero luck on ages for the longest. Then all the progress came at once. Had to talk it through with another stuck individual for us to get any momentum on it.

Has anyone had contact to Wil recently? I've sent him two emails in the last couple of weeks and haven't heard from him yet.
