I gave the puzzle you can see on the image below to a friend of mine for christmas last year. I thought it would be fun to dump it out in front of him so he would not know the solution. Unfortunately I did not write down the solution myself.
Until now multiple people have put countless hours into this puzzle and still nobody has managed to solve it. So please help me!
The puzzle is complete and definitely solvable, the tiles were all inside the frame when I bought it.
I have also started implementing a program to brute force the solution, but I thought I would post here as well.
I have taken pixel dimensions for all the tiles from the image (not 100% accurate, but should suffice):
- Large wrench: 164x655
- Blank: 164x234
- Pliers: 491x422
- Hammers: 750x234
- Pipe wrenches: 422x491
- Small screwdriver: 327x94
- Tenon saws: 327x491
- Screw wrench: 258x750
- Screwdriver: 140x655
- Hacksaw: 491x327
- Carpenter's rule: 397x327
- Wrenches: 327x655
I hope I chose the right terms for the tools, English is not my native language.
Does anybody have any tips for solving puzzles like this? If you think you can solve it, I would love to see your attempt!
Cheers and happy puzzling!
