I started using the minitool again and it began to work once I figured out how to use it. I found that keeping my index finger on the center of it and gently sliding it around worked best. I tried 2 trips and took a look at the ronchi. There was a tiny bit of movement to the good. I eventually did 8 trips and I'm pretty close. Maybe a little high. The lines show a high 70% zone and a hole. My last measurement agreed. I'm going to smooth the edge with a little bit of MOT 1 inch stroke. That should bring the center up and smooth out things too.
