William Waite's Collection of Vintage Mechanical Puzzles

There do not seem to be many pages devoted to vintage mechanical puzzles on the web.  Therefore I've made this page devoted to some of the vintage puzzles in my collection.  It is by no means comprehensive, but just presents a few random puzzles.  The puzzles are arranged by category.  I have tried to add historical information where I can.  I am always looking for corrections or additions to the information, so please write to me at orders@puzzlemist.com with any comments.  Enjoy!
