The solution? Pretty simple – trim the edges back a bit. Obviously easiest done on a tablesaw, but mine’s buried under flotsam right now, so I attacked with the Stanley 65:

Not bad for about 5 minute’s work. Next is setting some locking pins and filling all the random holes, replace the holder stop, and refinish. And a new ground glass. But, Progress!
