    I think the reversed magnets and absurd amount of lubes counteracted each other. The magnets want to push apart while the copious amounts of lube made the pieces stick to each other.

    The only thing I can think of to make this turn worse is by adding sand or dust or something to grind up the internals

    That copious amount of lube is the cubing equivalent of when you would mix a bunch of different drinks and sauces together as a kid and dare your friends to drink it

  • AlexGolem

    Next time you should definitely try adding something mildly abrasive in there like toothpaste or buffing compound, as well as something super sticky like honey, soda, or Elmer's glue! That would make it the stuff of nightmares!

    If dollar store 7x7s ever exist, I'm sure that they won't come close to how bad this 7x7 turns, no matter how hard the Chinese manufactures try.

    When you said “let’s try and turn it” after removing the springs and the cube just refused I laughed out loud.

    This person totally deserves a massive round of applause for this (and all his other vids): he went through the pain and agony of reversing the magnets of HALF the pieces of a 7x7 AND disassembling and reassembling it TWICE. PLUS solve the whole thing after having smushed like 15 lubes and other things in it with dirty, oily, stinky hands. Also, he had to bear the feeling of hand sanitizer on a cut-yikes…

    Next try dunking the whole thing in a tank of acetone. Mauve get some chemical-proof gloves and try to do a solve under the acetone before the cube dissolves.

    Here's a useful bit of knowledge for ya:
    WD-40 isn't a lubricant. As the name implies, it's actually a water dispellant, and should only be used as a lubricant if you intend to disassemble whatever you are putting it in afterwards, as it is also corrosive.
