The 'Lubix Square 1'

            This square one is a MF8 Square 1, re-branded as a Calvin Square 1. (Better packaging)

            We start with a Square 1, and completely disassemble the cube.  We remove any burrs, and edge mod the main rail to allow the U and D layer to spin smoother with less hang-ups during solving.  The next thing we do, is use our branded 'Lubix Cube Silicone' to lubricate the metal hardware.  This includes lubricating the head of the screw where the spring rubs on the the head of the screw.  We also lubricate the washer on the other side of the spring.  In addition, we lubricate all friction areas of the two opposing center pieces where metal rubs on plastic.  This is by far the best method of lubricating the core, and because of the very thick viscosity of our Lubix Cube Silicone, the benefits of this lubrication will last at least six months with excessive use. (100 solves a day, every day for 6 months).  Your Lubix cube should not need any further lubricating for at least 6 months.

            We also remove any imperfections and burrs.  We then reassemble the cube sending the main screw thru the Blue side towards the Green.  At this stage, we then do an additional lubrication on the exposed metal core between the core and the center piece.  This offers further lubrication of the biggest friction area on the cube.  We simply call this 'Lubing the core'.  This extra bit of silicone at the highest friction area of the cube is the reason that the cube does not need lubrication for such a long time.

            Next as we assemble the cube, we add a bit of our silicone to the surface pieces.  Do note that because our silicone is of a high viscosity, that when you receive your cube, it may at first feel a bit sluggish.  This is normal, and once you have solved the cube about half a dozen times, it will speed up dramatically as the silicone gets worked around to all of the surfaces evenly.

            Because the caps of the Square 1 are loose fitted, we put a small dab of super glue on each of the caps so that they don’t accidentally pop off during solves.  Because the Blue side has the screw head, we leave the center Blue rail un-glued so each customer can disassemble or re-lube the puzzle to their liking later on.  We double check that all the stickers are correct, and in perfect condition.  If we see an issue with the quality or alignment of the stickers, we replace them before we send the cube out.  We sticker all of our cubes with what is called a 'Minus Yellow' or standard configuration.  This means that White is opposite of Yellow, Blue is opposite of Green, and Red is opposite of Orange.  Red-White-Blue are adjacent to each other in a clockwise order 'RWB'.

            Finally, we put on our high quality transparent Lubix Cube Logo on the white side.  This is to show that you have an official Lubix Cube.  Our logo design is simple, and makes it very easy to find the white side, with out it being distracting during the rest of the solve.  We use different color schemed logos depending on the cube.  The logo on the Square 1 is Orange.
