I have been to Cuzco and Machu Picchu and those bolders are "perfectly" fit. Even in the joints between the andesite boulders that weigh hundreds of tons at Sacsayhuaman you cannot see any space at all anywhere along the joint. You cannot fit a sheet of paper or the tip of a needle there. The only indication that there's a joint is the bulbous nature of the rock surfaces. There are instances where blocks have been separated and the internal joints are exposed as curved pockets into the stone and often rise to razor sharp peaks where several blocks join to make the complex joint. It's one of the most staggering things I've ever seen on Earth. There is simply no way to imagine the irregular non-planar surfaces of those rocks being individually filed/pounded/polished down in a trial and error process.
