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.
You are very gracious Roger. Thank you very much.

Was my front measuring technique OK as described? Headed home shortly, will remeasure and report back in a few hours.
