    I might just have to try this. Pictures need to be bigger though...
    Running is cooler than cubing. :)

    Another way to make Rubik's brand cubes beastly: Use Jig-A-Loo. At least the way I did it, I have a cube that spins fast (maybe a little too fast, but I'm getting a lot of sub-20's lately with an absent orange side) and isn't getting corroded. Just disassemble and give it one sweep. This legend here has an amazing experiment he did-of course, you can probably change it up, depending on where you are. If you aren't sub-30, you may want less lube. Just a thought.
    A mild case of yellow fever. Who got that?

    I have a *edit Eastsheen and an older rubik's brand and after a lot of use I actually prefer the older rubiks to my meffert which tends to pop even though I have tightened down the screws.

    Would a modified cube like this be legal for competition?

    3g) Puzzles may be made smoother internally by sanding or using any lubricant.
    Yes. Yes it is legal.
    Overall, I think | Skewb
    Having sigs allow three lines | 3x3: ~13
    Isn't a huge deal. | Skewb: ~7

    In that case I will have to pick up a store bought and try this. Thanks!

    I ordered a set that was supposedly eastsheen cubes. The kit included a diy cube. It did not have a label but was included with all the cubes which are eastsheen. I will see if I can confirm it for you.
