Oh boy, isn't this a beauty? Inspired by a very old, possibly Chinese, origin puzzle, this amazing puzzle is made by Tucker-Jones House Inc. and, fun fact, for the nails they use a machine that has been in use since the Civil War era. Very difficult to solve, but once you understand the logic it is very satisfying. A must have for all collectors.

I've been searching the internet for one of these for a long time. I made one 50 years ago for a high school art project. My Grandfather had one that I learned to operate. I copied off of his which had 8 rings, mine has a wooden handle. This is an awesome puzzle but can't find anyone else that has one let alone operate it. I used rings from an old tie chain for cows from an old cow stables.

My dad had the local Blacksmith make this puzzel for him. He kept it in his Barber Shop to tease his customers. I was about 7 or 8 years old (around 1943) when he taught me how to solve the puzzel. I still have his homemade one that was made our of horse shoe nails and a coat hanger. I can still work it blindfolded.
