Please, check the grid. There's 10 cells in rows 5 and 6, cannot make a unique solution puzzle out of it as it is now.

I added some clues to make it symmetrical and unique. Try one of these instead:

Code: Select all
` *-----------* |.5.|6..|784| |...|.1.|...| |48.|...|...| |---+---+---| |...|.6.|9.5| |1..|.3.|..8| |5.4|.7.|...| |---+---+---| |...|...|.93| |...|.4.|...| |763|..5|.2.| *-----------* *-----------* |.1.|6..|784| |...|.1.|...| |48.|...|...| |---+---+---| |...|.6.|9.5| |1..|.3.|..8| |5.9|.7.|...| |---+---+---| |...|...|.93| |...|.4.|...| |763|..5|.2.| *-----------*`
