    Hi Shapeways fans,

    Cooksey Maze is a maze concept invented by an Englishman named "Mr. Richard Cooksey" in the 1970's. An evolved metal+plastic version with springs and pins was prototyped by Pentangle, but it was never taken in production. This is a modified version of the original Cooksey Cylinder with a much simplified mechanism.

    Hi Shapeways fans,

    In addition to the Oskar-style remake of the original Cooksey Maze, I have also designed and built six Cooksey Tribute puzzles, as a tribute to Richard Cooksey's original design that provided the inspiration.
    -Cooksey Tribute A: two identical square pins
    -Cooksey Tribute B: two identical square pins at a 45 degrees angle
    -Cooksey Tribute C: two identical square pins at a 22.5 degrees angle
    -Cooksey Tribute D: two different rectangular pins at 0 and 90 degrees angle
    -Cooksey Tribute E: two different rectangular pins at -45 and +45 degrees angle
    -Cooksey Tribute F: two different rectangular pins at -22.5 and 67.5 degrees angle
