Difficulty Level 6 on Hanayama scale 1 to 6. Grand Master! Sometimes we wonder if Hanayama wished they had a Level 7!
The task is to separate the rotors from the starting position. Then reassemble the rotors to where the indicators align with each other.
The two pieces of the puzzle are the same shape and look more like the rotating assembly from a turbine in miniature than a puzzle. But then again I guess if you had to put one of those things together it might be considered a huge puzzle!
Even if you can’t solve it the puzzle feels great in your hands. Makes a good fidget toy. And interestingly when they are separated they can be enjoyed as a spinning top.
The uniquely shaped and identical pieces, as well as the numerous possible solutions, make this a difficult puzzle.
