Status: 26th July 2013. We have 2 of these puzzles still available.

For the top part of the puzzle Brian was looking for a complex but rare burr that could attach to the main shaft of the puzzle without coming apart accidentally.  He decided to use Stewart Coffin's design called Triple Slide.   Although Stewart does not seem to have allocated this puzzle it's own number in his system he did describe it as "having a most unusual action to assemble".  Bill's Cutler's analysis in the late 1980's found it to be a unique level 3 solution.

Brian created a new design to wrap around a central post by using 4 six piece burrs that must work simultaneously.  The 16 piece burr is a level 5-5-22 burr; very solvable, especially when you have 200+ international puzzlers in your backyard!  In fact the giant puzzle was taken apart and reassembled by a group of enthusiastic puzzlers on the IPP27 Giant Puzzle day.  A copy of BurrSolver solution file for both upper and lower burrs can be supplied upon request.
