Another idea that may / may not work. What about building some sort of
"Feeler" a set of arms with small rollers that would drop into a small hole
that was pre-drilled. The operator could drill a small 1/2" by 1/2" hole
that the feeler arm would drop into. THis would eliminate vision problems,
but not natural holes in the wood? Just thinking outside the box.
