I'm sorry for Satanic who just can't hack it.
My blind spot nowadays is sharpening twist drills (backing off). I've lost the touch since my apprentice days, which although 60 years ago, I'm sure the confidence of youth played a part as I can still feel & see & OK.

I think this thread should end right here - you're being way to hard on yourselves. What do you expect? You're only engineers...

A lot of of the every day things such as putting a nut on a screw is done these days purely by instinct.Cannot see a thing.Sharpening a twist drill is just a memory.Remember when the tradesman you worked with said"do this lad the old eyes are not so good" & you thought him a silly old bugger?

My brother ( a member of SN who never posts ) so I will log him into EA ; when he was a junior on Moss tankers MV Luxor was limited by the 2nd Eng to only using wrenches on bolts of 7/8 inch or more . He had a tendancy to shear all he touched .

Probably why he ended up Scottish Senior hammer champion at one time and came 7th in the Senior Olympics held in Newcastle some years ago.
