This was a nice present I got from one of my sons for Fathers Day.

Never heard of these kits so I was presently surprised.

The varios tree's of parts are "LAZER CUT from stainless steel and polished, so I got a nice pair of gloves to wear while I assemble the kit and a polishing cloth to keep it's luster.

It even comes with a nice pair of needle nose pliers to bend where needed and a diamond coated file to address any tabs where a part was removed .

Of all things, this is a windup toy that will actually move across any flat surface, and there are cut-outs in the body to see the gears in operation.

This kit is ingenious. Even the tires and wheels are assembled in layers.

This will definitly be fun and challanging.

Who doesn't love a challange??

!st page of the instruction sheet.

3 LAZER CUT panels

And finally, here's the project just being started complete with pliers, assembly "White gloves" a black polishing cloth, and a diamond coated finishing file for any places where the part was attached.

This build was a lot more challanging than I expected.

You don't make mistakes and fix them like with plastic.

This is polished stainless steel, and you don't fix scratches, so you assemble it with gloves on that they supply in the kit.

95 pieces. Beautifully designed kit, and beautiful instructions.

Whoever designes these kits has to be a genius, and is beautiful assembled,

and so fun just to look at.

I hope you enjoy the pics.

Thanks for stopping by.

Thank you guys.

These kits manufactued by "Time for Machine" have several different style kits they call "Adult 3-d puzzles".

I thought they were photo etched, but they are "Lazer cut stainless steel."

 This one I'm picturing here is a train streamliner with 7 sheets of parts compared to my 3 sheets for the car, and 242 pieces compared to the 95 pieces, but also 3 times the price at $159.00.

I like the challange and the finished look is fun to share with family and friends.

Most of us love "eye candy" and this definetly fits that for me, so maybe someday.....!

I apologize for the picture quality taking from an online link.

Oh My!

      I thought the Fascinations and Wood mechanical puzzles were neat. I am going to have to find one of those.
