at the rearmost part where you start rolling, &/or at the foremost part,
level with the TE.

corrected flat spans for wedged ARCs (with or without one or three center
cells removed also).
1120 (8.0 proj) wedged 12cm. is 1107 (7.9 proj.).
14.9 is about 8.4 proj.
At 6% smaller, I think the 1107 will have less low end, since the 630 has
less than a 7.5 Naish which is only 4% bigger, & wedging shouldn't improve
low end much. I'm really curious about the top end though.
