Have I finally lost my mind?

So after about a year trying to order a counter-clipping jig from a guy in the US, I decided to make my own. It was surprisingly easy - a redundant CD case, a hacksaw, some fine-grade sandpaper, and about 15 minutes careful work were all that was needed. The critical bit was filing away the corner until the amount of counter-corner showing was just right.

It certainly makes the clipping job quicker and far more accurate. As you can see I've been going through my ASL Starter Kit counters re-clipping them for absolutely uniform corners.

But the question remains - why would any sane person want to do this?

There is absolutely no doubt in my mind that you've finally cracked.

This is the single weirdest obsession in your life, bar none.

I remember the days when you used to blog about whether or not you should get into corner clipping at all: "why would I need to clip my corners?" you would ask.

It's clear to me now that these initial spurts of corner clipping based rhetoric were the warning signs of a much worse sickness still to come. I only wish that I could have been there for you, to stop you becoming a mental person.

My friend, you are a boardgamer & a chit-wargamer... your sanity (or lack thereof) is no longer in question.

Wanna play a game?! :-)
