Default A Game To Check Your "Eye For Things".

This game is at Rockler.

It's just a little sumthin sumthin to check and see if you've got an eye.
Lots of woodworkers can get a fit down to where you can throw a cat through it. That sucks, unless you're building doghouses and handicap ramps.
The goal is to make a fit transparent. That is very difficult. Well, not really. It takes time, patience, good tools and "an eye".

I've got the eye of a hog, and I get blinder daily, which compounds the problem. I'm going to get some more glasses in a few days, not that it'll help much.

I think a person can improve their eye over time, then when their eyesight goes, they can rely on skill and their tools. But in the beginning, I think you either have it or you don't.

That's where this game comes in. Try it out and post your results.
I got a 10.6 in 124 seconds. That's bad and fast.

Let's make this a challenge.
Whoever beats me the worst, there's a fiver in it for you.
Play as many times as you like, post all your results, and I'll end the challenge when I bore with it.

4.65, 152.3.
Ben made me think. A good woodworker takes his time.
The Overall score is what we'll go by for the winnar.

I also noticed that guys are getting awesomely low scores but it takes them 800 to 1000 seconds. Clearly using protractors and stuff. It's all about the eye here.

Weeze got 4.84 in 107.53.
I knew she'd do good. She's got a hell of an eye, which should be obvious by looking at the super sexy that is me.

First try, not toooo bad since I'm actually on a conference call and presenting a design, you can tell where I was answering questions on the call and where I was not engaged.

Hey some things are just important!

I just had a high 3, low 4 going and I dropped the click and got a 242.7 on the last one.
