National Bookstore Cube Modification

Post by papplazy on Wed Jan 02, 2008 6:41 pm

I had a couple of knock-off cubes in my house. I thought they wouldn't be put to use anymore because they were all broken and I just purchased an NBS Magic Cube. I constantly lubed my NBS cube and used it nonstop but there were no improvements at all. It was still the same stiff, hard to turn, hand cramping cube.

Earlies today, I noticed that the springs on my NBS cube were really noisy, and there was an obvious resistance when i tried twisting the cube. So I thought it must be the springs. So I decided to dismantle my cube and open the center caps on each side. I was surprised to find out how crappy the screws were. Give it half a turn and the whole screw popped out. Crazy screws. Anyway, I took out the springs and found out that they were so hard,too hard actually.

So I asked myself "what is it that I can do?" In the corner of my eye I saw the dismantled cubies from my old knock-off cubes. I took out their springs and put them into my NBS cube. I screwed everything back in, replaced the caps and assembled the cube. I tried twisting the cube and TADA! I had an NBS cube that was way easier to turn! My NBS cube is now comparable to a fairly used TRU cube. Cool. I dunno if it'll work on your NBS cube but it did on mine. So I suggest you give it a try. Malay mo..Hehe

Sabihin niyo sakin kung ano kinalabasan ah. This could be the start of something new. Haha

Diba parang may line sa gilid nun, dinaanan ko lang ng cutter hanggang mag open ung seams, nung naipasok ko na ung cutter ng konti, flinick open ko nalang siya. parang ganito



Di yan actual picture nung cube ko pero parang ganyan ung ginawa ko. May onting glue na nakalagay dun sa caps ng nbs eh, so minsan pag sinoli mo na ung center caps, maluwag na. Laging nalalglag so ang gawin mo. ganto



this way di na siya malalaglag, madali pa siyang i-pry open for further adjustments sa future.

Thanks sir. I just came across it when I was surfing for cube mods out of desperation. Hehe.

karita
Anong nangyari sa cube mo? Bitin naman ng kwento mo eh. Haha.

krisakiko
Baka nasobrahan sa luwag ung screws, crazy kasi yung screws ng NBS cube eh, onting pihit lang anlaki na ng inaadjust. Haha. Pero sus, ano ba naman ang NBS cube para sayo? Nakakalula na sa dami yang picture mo sa avatar. Hahaha.

Jricle
I believe the cube in the pictures is a studio cube. I'm not really sure. I just used the pictures to show Omar what I did.

gian_oneil
Pano mo binawasan yung springs? Hmm...masubukan nga...[/b]

Thanks Sir. A little effort won't hurt. Tulong din para sa mga di kasing swerte mo. Para sa mga nagtyatyaga sa NBS cube dahil laging nauubusan ng Rubik's.com cube. Hay....Hehe Oh, and one more thing the cube in the picture is not my cube, I just found it online. Pareho lang kami nung ginawa...well not really...I used a flat head screwdriver cause I didn't have a hammer lying around that time. Haha.

Omar
Haha. Ituloy tuloy mo na yung ipon mo para sa TRU Cube...Onti nalang yun. Meron akong feeling na uulan na ng TRU cube sa mga tindahan anytime soon eh...ewan ko..feeling ko lang. Gawin mo nalang experimentalcube yung Magic Cube mo...magical naman yan eh. Hahaha. Goodluck. Sana gumana ung mod.

Mr.Prince_X06
Ano namang kinalabasan? Dumulas ba ng husto? Kwento mo naman.

azywerkz
Sige lang sir. Subok lang naman eh. Walang mawaala kasi di mo kelangan mag putol ng kung ano man. So everything's quite reversible...unless mawala mo ung original springs. Haha.And besides...may magic naman yung mga cube natin eh.

Yey... success ung mod... inilipat ko na ung spring nung local cube[na kaya rin mag cut corners, kaso malambot ang plastic].. dun sa NBS cube... mas maluwag na siya, tapos dahil nahihirapan ako sa recognition nung orange/red sa NBS cube pinatong ko narin ung tiles nung local cube na yun...

Napansin ko lang iba yata ung "screw" nung NBS cube. hindi ko na alam ang tawag kasi di naman siya sharp edge.. siguro para hindi ma damage ung core?

Walang ano man mehn! Nagtutulungan lang naman tayo dito eh. Cheers!

omar
Yes. Success ulit. Balak ko din sana ilipat ung tiles dun sa NBS Cube ko kaso nawawarak agad ung tiles. Ung isa ko na rip-off cube mukhang dinaanan ng bagyo na ewan dahil sa basag na tiles. Gamit ko parin yung stickers ng NBS Cube pero inalis ko ung parang plastic na fil na nagproprotect sa sticker tas nilagyan ko ng clear na spray paint. So ayun, mas madali na siyang hawakan, protektado pa yung stickers.

Oo grabe, patawa talaga yung screws nung NBS Cubes. Ang hirap "i-tono" ung screws kasi onting ikot lang grabe na yung niluwag. Crazy screws.

gharee11
Go ahead sir. The biggest regret in life is not trying. Haha. Wala namang mawawala eh.
