I f when putting a shim on the lowest part of the bed, the Paul Sellers test on the diamond plate gives a good result (same abrading mark on the whole iron width) then the next step would be to very carefully remove some material (equivalent to the thickness of the shim which was giving good abrading result) on the high side of the bed.

But as we say in French “les conseilleurs ne sont pas les payeurs”.
