Free the marble!
Goal: Free the marble from the bottle without breaking anything. After "mission
completed" assemble back to its original state so the puzzle is ready for
its next victim.
Solution: Free the Marble
Get the split pin out of the hole by turning & twisting the bottle. This should
happen easily. Turn the bottle upside down so the marble comes down in the neck
of the bottle (see fig. 3) Grab the wooden stick and move it so you press the
screw on the marble to unscrew it. After unscrewing, the bolt comes out of the
hole. You can get everything out of the bottle including the marble.
Solution: Get everything back in.
Put all parts back in the bottle; The wooden stick goes last. Put the bottle on
its side (see fig. 5) and make sure the bolt points to the bottle of the neck.
Slide the bolt back in its original hole (see fig. 2) and turn the bottle 180°
so the bolt slides in position. Pick up the screw with the bolt by moving the
stick & bottle and pressing and rolling the screw to the glass. This will
need some time and patience. After having put the nut just a little bit back on
the bolt you can use the marble again to screw it more easy on the bolt. ATTENTION!
turning the nut to the right will tighten the bolt, to the left it unscrews it
again! Turn and twist so the split pin lays down on the slick and it can slide
back into its hole.
Gift Idea: Put some paper money inside!
