I've just repeated my "bed map" with the DTI:
-3          18  22       0




14          37  40      12

18



0           12  28       4
(all in 1/100th mm)
(where there are more than 3 measurements in a line, that's the approx location of the max value)
Which implies I have roughly 0.2mm in the X rails, and 0.2mm / 0.3mm in the Y

It's quite possible that I can easily sort the X rails by loosening the rail mounts and seeing if the rails themselves deflect upwards when not held down (which would imply a bend in the right direction when tight). That I can fix by mending the mounts gently to eliminate nearly all the deflection. The Y rails are mounted differently, so I may leave them alone unless I have to.

But that's a job for tomorrow!
