Question After first rotation of crank 360, with dot facing down, do I ever let go of the cam?

With dial after:

1. First rotation 360...

2. Dot faces down:

3. Loosen nut:


5. Remove pin:

Now what? Do I keep the cam tool on the cam? and: What do I do next?............

.i.e. ...........1. How, (by what method), should I now rotate the camshaft to get to overlapping TDC with .1mm.?

Basically what I'm asking is at this point in the process, with the dowel pin removed again, and the cam tool "securely holding the camshaft in place" (page 167-168), is it the cam or the crank being next to be turned ? If the crank, is the cam tool now on or off the cam?
