Patented in America in 1975, the somewhat swirled pieces of this puzzle by Eldon Vaughn must be disjoined and then put back together. I once found a smaller version of this puzzle about twenty years ago in America, but considered it impossible to solve at the time. We have made a new version maintaining the difficulty of the original and licensed it for the Cast Puzzle series. This is without a doubt among the most difficult of all puzzles. The key word is 'Twist'. Don't use too much force...the pieces should just slide apart.

The Cast Puzzle... Britain in the 19th Century. The nobles and citizens, brimming over with pretentiousness and curiousity is said to have created the boom in puzzles. A great variety of puzzles came to exist duuring this period, speaking for the times. Among those puzzles, we began to attempt to bring back to life the "Casted Metal Puzzle". The material, die cast zinc, is made by melting and pouring a zinc alloy into a metal mold. Upon its completion after grueling effort, the puzzle series was named the "Cast Puzzle" series. This is due to its manufactoring process name, the die cast method.
