Steel Juggling Cubes and Mobius Loops
Every juggler needs a set of these fine steel juggling cubes: They fit beautifully in your hand, weigh just the right amount for good solid throws (8.3 oz, just over half a pound) and best of all, they don't roll! They also won't ever get damaged by dropping them on the floor, a major advantage over thin-walled beanbag juggling balls. They measure 1 3/4" on a side and are constructed of 253 rings each.
Juggling cubes run $20 each, or $50 for a set of three.
Necessary Math Geek Gear: the chainmail Mobius Loop. Made of 6-in-1, 4-wide steel, this is iron-clad evidence that you have a non-orientable manifold somewhere in your nature (in case they couldn't already tell). Hang it over your door for good luck, hang it from a string to torture your cat, or leave it on your desk as a conversation piece and a paperweight. Bring it to exams for good luck. Are you the president of a math society? You need one of these!
Available with a right-hand or left-hand twist (pictured is a right-hand twist, I think...). $20 each.
If you have a need for any other cute and clever toys, I will gladly make them. I may need a picture or a small sample of
any unfamiliar patterns to produce it properly. (Samples will, of course, be returned).
As with all of the steel items I make, there are two general sizes that are available.
The items you see here are made of the larger, 14-gauge galvanized steel with a 3/8"
inside diameter. The smaller size is made of 17-gauge galvanized steel, and has a 1/4" inside
diameter. Alternate metals such as nickel, brass, and copper are also available at your request, in a
variety of sizes.
