Default Does anyone have a flywheel sitting in the open?

So I need help, I machined down my flywheel before I replace the clutch and it turned out well... I think.

The issue is that I didn't realize you need to machine the top where the pressure plate bolts down as well?
I didn't check what the difference in height was between the two before I started so now I don't know how much material I removed from the face of the flywheel. Does anyone have access to a good flywheel that can measure the height of the step?
in 1,000s of an inch please!

A quick check gave me around 505 thousandths on the machined one, which is very close to the 512 that 13mm equals. however it should be over 512 not under? So yeah, a couple more measurements from the hive mind would be great.
You guys are the best, I thought I was royally screwed after this.

I've got a few kicking around I'll measure when the sun comes up, including a brand new lighter one I never installed.

I finally remembered to do this. The one I have measured out at 1/2".
