Long chord strokes, only 2 times around dug a shallow groove just inside edge. Corrected it with short TOT strokes to get back to where I was.

How about a long TOT stroke of some sort? I've always heard that using TOT with too long or too fast of a stroke will turn down the edge.

I've turned down the edge on so many mirrors and now when I figure out how to go the other way....

Be careful what you wish for, right?
