Off-Day Puzzle #6: Solution

Hacks need not apply when Mr C's making the puzzle, as evidenced by the 3 solvers. The answer was Takashi Saito.

The key was to spin the concentric dials until you get the following:

Then, read the message downward and to the right starting with the dotted letter, which will clue you into once again using your high school Braille to discern Takashi's name in the Braille letters separated by the red columns.

Congratulations Steve K, UBragg, & Jason. And thanks Mr C for a brilliant puzzle I could neither conceive nor solve.

Updated rankings coming soon. Next Puzzle, Thursday, July 28, 7am, from Sax!

It's obvious that none of the puzzle solvers attended my local public learning facilities.

I'm the pride of Hawthorne's own, Zela Davis Elementary School. They lernid me reel good.

Glad I didn't attempt it. I know the answer, but still can't figure out how it is solved.

When I first started working on this (after a couple of beers, I'll admit), I actually lined up the two larger wheels entirely by accident and saw "UTI" which made me think the puzzle had something to do with Juan "Urine" Uribe. That wasted a solid 20 minutes of my time.

I see now. You have to eliminate the top and bottom row and read only the middle three braille style.

Nicely done Mr. C!
