For "Sour Grapes"(jogyxyn): demegal. I found this very challenging. I came up with several very complicated mechanisms which almost worked before hitting on this relatively simple one. I'm looking forward to seeing everyone else's solutions.

Edit: compacted my machine a bit. (was podyloh)

Very nice! That is a simple, sharp solution.

To solve this level, try separating the high-carbon steel from the low-carbon steel using this traditional Japanese Tatara: gixihyd.

Nicely done!

However, I forgot to mention that it is important to keep the structure beneath the tatara empty. Any accidental cooling could ruin the tamahagane: Son of Tatara hirudaz.

I had forgotten to save my solution for (Son of) Tatara, so I have recreated the basic design from memory.

Here is a light, new puzzle. I don't think it will give any of you regulars any trouble.

I've come back to spend some quality rubicon time in the last few days, and I see that there are still plenty of tough puzzles left. I've lost many solutions-in-progress for Werbad's puzzles, so I have plenty to do over there starting from scratch. And, of course, Rene's gohadis is waiting.

So grab a flashlight and a ladder. Tonight, after hours, you drop down into the basement and complete the repairs. Watch out for the loose wiring:

Somehow I do have trouble with it. So much so, that I think it is not possible to solve if the target crate turns out to be even.

It is solvable. imageDon't fall for my deliberate trick of putting lots of sparkly, distracting parts on it.  Wink

For Late Night (gudopog): buzebon which uses a completely different design than Werbad's solution.
