Douglas,

I'm still wondering how that rod got tweaked. It's pretty staunch. Did it display any radial runout (maybe not the perfect term but what comes to mind) when rolled along a flat surface?

Cheers,

Rick

I didn't take off the pins that hold the stone holder on the arm to check but I should.
In the Pro case there is a hole that the rod end fits into. If you reverse the rod it's a leeeettle too long for the case and it fits diagonally so the fit is important.
The only way I can think of is that when I was putting the rod into the case I didn't put the rod end into
the hole it's supposed to go in which put just some pressure on the rod ends which could have deformed it.
IIRC it was a difference of approx .25° - 75°.
When I received the new one, the readings were the same all along the rod.
I still hope someone-listening Mark?- comes up with Mad Rookies modified pivot but it's worth checking the straightness of the rod.

Oohhhhhhh well , I just put the "convexed" edge under the 400x Veho and uuhhhhh.............it's a flat bevel.
Looked like a convex reflection by eye but the truth is in the microscope.

Damn!!!!! It made sense in theory......maybe it was just the voices whispering to me again :lol:

Even though I don't I always like what I see, this is why I like magnification - "the truth is in the microscope"
