Jack Puzzle
Rated 4.9 out of 5
Based on 9 reviews

$ 98

The Jack Puzzle is comprised of six different notched brass bars that interlock in one specific way to create a unified "jack" shape.

It is exactingly milled by a skilled machinist, and weighs just over one pound. A desk object, a paperweight, and a true distraction—but be forewarned, if you take it apart, you might not be able to figure out how to put it back together…

(Hand-drawn assembly instructions are included) 

SPECIFICATIONS:

  • 1/2" Diameter bar
  • Weighs approx. 1 lb
  • Measures 3" X 3" X 3" (assembled) 
  • Solid Cartridge Brass (alloy 260 – 70% copper, 30% zinc)
  • Bull-nose ends, lathe-cut

    Great product

    Elegant, hefty, and a fun puzzle. Pieces are satisfying to hold and balance in your hands as you put them in place. Directions are good and I was able to easily memorize the few steps required - now I like fidgeting with it, taking it apart and putting it back together increasingly intuitively. It will make for a nice conversation and fun activity for guests when we have any.

    I was a little disappointed that it took >2 weeks to arrive and was thus not available when my family was in town for Christmas. But life moves on.

    I would buy other such puzzles in the future and would recommend this to anyone afficionado of puzzles and raw metals.

    No room for improvement.

    As with all the products offered by Craighill, this is beautifully made, is exactly as described, delivered quickly, and even the packaging is terrific - like an extra bonus item that can be re-purposed.

    Beautiful and well designed

    The first thing you notice when you take it in your hands is the weight. It feels heavy and strong. Then comes the very nice brass polished aspect. This puzzle will attract eyes in your collection or on your desk. It took me a few seconds to take it apart but hours to put it back together. What a journey! I love to be 100% absorbed into a puzzle for hours and the Jack does the trick. The pieces are very well crafted and smooth. It is very tricky to find the right combination, balance and angle. It will require willpower, 3D visualization and, above all, strength and dexterity. A must have in any brain puzzle collection. Advise: don't look at the pieces when you take it apart, you'll get more fun to find the solution by yourself.
