Setting tensions for Rubik's Cube... pwede ba i adjust??

Post by Bongkeeks on Fri May 16, 2008 4:39 am

Hi guys!! Laughing noob here.. hehehe... yung cube ko kasi e Rubik's ang tatak and I've seen a lot of videos na pwede i adjust ang tensions nila.. yung DIY.. pero yung rubiks ko kasi ndi natatangal yung middle cap... hmmm is it possible na maluwagan yung mga middle caps for the tensions.. you know para lumuwag...



Ito po yung cube ko... gusto ko kasi bumilis yung rotations nya.. i sprayed silicone oil para malubricate siya.. pero naglolock pa kasi e.. is there any way para maluwagan siya?? help naman guys... Neutral

I tried removing the center cap of my old TRU cube, one thing I found out inside was circular yung screw niya kaya there was no way I can adjust it. Medjo weird nga eh kung pa'no nailagay yun. So your only option is to lube and break your cube in.

Sayang, if you were willing to spend that much on your Rubik's, sana bumili ka na lang nung Rubik's speedcubing DIY kit sa TRU, 900+ din yun, pero one of the best DIYs na yun, screw-type na may libre pang screwdriver at silicone cube lubricant.

Walang sinabi dun yang normal na Rubik's na rivet-type at unadjustable.

As for the faded stickers, ganun din eventually lahat ng Rubik's, nagpepeel yung stickers at nababakbak, kaya you'll still have to invest in better ones like PVC stickers (p90 lang per set kay Hans sa cube meets, may sticker applicator pang kasama) or reflectorized stickers (around p60 lng for 6 colors, good for 3-5 cubes na yun) anyway.

Also, ingat sa petroleum jelly. Nangangain ng plastic ang petroleum-based lubricants gaya ng PJ at WD-40. Dalawa na nasira kong cube jan (isang bangketa cube na nadurog yung cube parts sa loob at nagcrack yung core, at yung TRU ng barkada ko na lumuwag at nagpop yung rivet). MagCyclo ka na lang, SOBRANG effective na kahit bangketa cube nagiging DIY sa looseness (although 0% cutting corners pa rin yung bangketa cube kaya useless for speedcubing pa rin).
