For years I have been searching for something like this:

I first saw this is a gift shop on Long Island in 1992. It only had one hourglass, but was finely made with a wooden stand and went for something like $80.

A few years ago, I saw a bunch of cheaply made abominations in Wal-Mart with day-glo sand and such a poor fit, it instantly gave away the principle behind the puzzle.

I was wondering if anyone knew of a source for the Floating Hourglass puzzle made in a quality fashion or if you happen to have one of the nice ones for sale.

Many thanks!

Have you checked with Tim Rowett at Grand Illusions? (He's the guy in the video)
