Why do you keep babbling on about scratching things..??
Constantly deflecting again. in an attempt to undermine Chris Dunn's measurements.
I was under the impression that we were discussing the validity of planar surface measurement methods..

The chromium mirror was plated onto glass, both reflective and transparent.
The combined effect was to make the measurement appear slightly LARGER NOT SMALLER. WoW.
Yes, Chriss Dunn's measurements should be repeated, no one would deny that.

Sorry Archae I cannot communicate with you in any rational way. Incomprehensible gibberish.
Over and out.
