Initially the mechanic was worried that re-dishing too far would put it out of shimano's spec, but ended up getting it done the same day. He said the wheel was off center (to the frame) to begin with and ended up adding a small spacer to the drive side and re-dished it. He said it was going to be a hair off center just due to the wheel being matched with this old frame, but it was almost perfect and the alignment was much improved from before. There's about a 3mm gap between the frame and chain now, so no contact. Only charged me $16 and it's dished perfectly, so I'm happy I passed this one on to them.

Thanks again for the help.
Always love a story that ends well.
