Author Topic:  Online PSG Jigsaw Puzzle!

If you've got a little time on your hands, you might enjoy working on this online jigsaw puzzle I created of a PSG undercarriage. There are 98 pieces. The website will track your time to completion as well, so feel free to post your timing here if you like, as well as your guess as to what make and model this is...

Tip: if you click on the image icon at the bottom-left, you'll be able to see what the original photo looks like. If you click on the "ghost" icon next to it, you'll see a ghosted image centered on the table, which you can make larger or smaller, if you wish, while working on the puzzle.

Happy Saturday and enjoy! Smile

Jim

That's actually just about what a pedal steel looks like after you take it apart.

I tried the 200 piece puzzle and after 20 minutes I only had 8 pieces connected. I did the 24 piece puzzle and it took 11 minutes to complete. Very entertaining 👍

Hmmm... maybe I made it TOO challenging! (Full disclosure: I didn't try it myself yet!)

I'll edit it down to something more reasonable. Please give it another shot in a few minutes...

OK, I cut it down to 98 pieces (vs 200) and no rotation of pieces; they are all facing the proper direction to be put in place.

Good luck!

Just finished it, Jim. Fun little puzzle. Thanks.

With the first iteration I was about to inflict harm onto someone for the intense frustration I was experiencing!! Arrrrrggghhhhhh!!!!! LOL!

But the second one was a lot of fun. Again, thanks.

Great Mike. Glad you enjoyed it! Do you mind telling me how long it took to complete? I have no idea! LOL. (You can PM it to me if you don't want to tell the world. Wink )

At a leisurely pace, it took about an hour and a half, Jim.

So far, 41 people have tried it and 20 have completed it. Not a bad ratio (~50%).

I did it in 61:28, but didn't sign in first. Pretty cool. If it was a picture of a single neck Sho~Bud, probably could have done it a lot sooner!

Looks like a MSA Studio Pro or maybe a Legend

34min 19 sec Jim.

A few years back I did a 24 piece jigsaw puzzle in just 45 minutes and rang up the Guinness book of records. They were very rude and disinterested in what I thought must have been a new record. They tried to give me the "brush off" even after I pointed out that on the box it said "3 to 5 years".
