Looks like it'll get the job done!!! Working on a problem solving tool myself. Trying to set up a cleat adjustment tool for road and mt. bike cleats that will mount the cleats right every time. Did you make the dishing tool too? JD

no dishing tool. Just flip wheel over on coarse adjust and check 2 c if reasonably close.
