Nearly the weekend once again, so as some of you know I've been chasing up R2 Series pre orders and giving updates, but I thought I would put up an announcement in case anyone missed mine or Chris's statements.
Firstly on behalf of everyone at HQ, I'm sorry these puzzles have been very delayed, lot's of factors played part but the main one is Chris had to 'tweek' the puzzles design here's what Chris has previous written;
"Just to clarify, after sending out the first Mercurys, it was not as smooth as people liked and the feedback using the puzzle was not as good as R1. Also a few managed to get passed certain areas incorrectly.
After talking with Ben, I changed the way the maze sat on the base and made the bb's fixed. Next was a change that added a trust needle bearing under the centre which is sprung loaded to apply constant down force pressure making the maze always at the same height and run exceptionally smoother. The original had the springs in the base pushing the maze up and hence not allow a consistent puzzle.
One other change was that the centre is locked in itself and freeing the drawbar to run smoothly. These changes are being applied to all the outstanding puzzles (not just Mercury)."
I can officially say we are starting work on completing just the Mercury series and see where that leaves us, so no batches, no numbers, Just mercury at this present moment.
Any more updates, I shall post them on the Mercury section. Have a lovely weekend everyone! Rachel
