|Cube Storage - Enough Room for Twenty...
While making Pizza, I noticed that there was a tiny bit of dough left.
As I don't like to waste food, I decided to make an extra Pizza as amuse-gueule.
|Lunch Time! Mini Pizza made from a tiny piece of leftover dough.
This was a very improvised setup, because it was not planned at all.
I should have put the cube with green-white-red on front.
The improvised "plate" is a large coffee cup upside down.
If the 10mm cube would be a regular size, the Pizza would be about 20cm in Diameter.

Regular Megaminx are available at about 68-75mm between opposite faces (diameter of the inscribed sphere).
There seems to be only one bigger mass-produced model available. The size is a little more than 90mm -
depending on the tension of the center screws, or how hard you press.
When comparing sizes, please note that some manufacturers quote the edge length of the pentagonal faces.

While trying to match cubes and open end wrenches, I realized that cubes can fit nicely
in the 12-point box end of combination wrenches.
But only stickerless cubes will give the funny look, so I started with a list of my stickerless
cubes sorted by size, and gave it a try.
The aim was to find four or five good matches, but when combining metric and
imperial wrench sizes, the number of matches increases. After an initial search I realized
that the set of five ~30mm to ~50mm gives an acceptable fit, I chose a regular size cube from the
same manufacturer to get a set of six matches having the same colors.
Four metric wrenches, two imperial ones.
For two of the cubes it took some force to push them in, one was a bit loose, but still OK.
