No, not out of patience. And glad to help even on stuff not bought from me. I call it advertising, and hope that someone eventually does. Just make it easy on me and post up the 4 numbers summarized below (both sags, both ends). Yes, you neglected the leverage ratio, and thus it should have been off instead of right on, at the end. This just illustrates how hard it is to get accurate measurements. There are a ton of places where 1 or 2mm can creep in, and add up. I see it all the time, and still do it once in a while myself. I did about 20 setups yesterday, and needed to remeasure twice. My experience happens to let me pretty easily see/feel/detect when I may have slipped up (thank god) but I sure don't bat 1000 out of the box either.
