Mine is not that severe, but with the varying thickness of the lens and the variable recess of the tip, it is not flush. I have stopped short of the precision you mention, but was thinking of leaving the tip recess even all around and then shimming up the lens as needed with a felt backer. After all, a replacement lens will have a different thickness profile.

Good solutions are awaited.
