12 Piece Lego Mechanical Puzzle (Lime Time)





Introduction: 12 Piece Lego Mechanical Puzzle (Lime Time)

With a few basic pieces you can make this really cool mechanical (or interlocking or burr) puzzle. It's a challenge to take apart and to put back together again too!

I call this one Lime Time because it's made of lime colored bricks and the only 1x2 tiles I have, clock displays. 

Step 1: Materials

To make this puzzle you'll need:
-1x1 tile (x2)
-1x2 tile (x83)
-1x2 plate (x84)
-1x2 brick (x47)
-1x2 brick (x24)

Step 2: The Pieces

Make 11 of these

Step 3: The "Special" Piece

The "special" piece is pretty much the same as the other pieces except it has a chunk missing.

Step 4: Assembly

    I love these puzzles. Though, LEGO makes it much to easy for me to cheat : /

    Making it from LEGO does make it easier to cheat but I kinda like that since I can never figure them out lol.
