Hello all,

I am looking for the drawer used by Lennart Green in his recent Penguin lecture (in his puzzle section), where he pulled the drawer out, dropped a coin into, then closed it.

No matter how the box is rotated around, the drawer always faces up when he pulled it out. Thus, the coin never drops.

He only mentioned it's a Japanese box. I asked the guys at Penguin and they had no clue what it is either ...

Thanks

Thanks so much for the information, Merlin.

I'll try to find one. Karakuri website no longer stocks the box it seems. Sloyd from Finland has it in stock but they are not very customer-friendly ...

Hello Arsenal,

in my experience, I didn't have any problems with Sloyd (I bought 2 or 3 things from them), my main concern was their stock, not always up to date... If they have still the box you are looking for, don't hesitate! Otherwise, you can contact me (pm) I have another contact that could help you (nothing sure however)

good luck!
