    It is the backside hide-a-bevel that is usually the issue, sometimes size as well. I would take it to the handstone and change the angle on the back of the bevel on the temporal edge until it fits...

    You've lost me. How does the power go from +5.00 to 0.00 is the cylinder doesn't have any power?

    A more detailed response can be found here, in post #22, strangely enough in response to your own...
