I am just thinking aloud,
I also have done a few hoggings with full tool size, and more with sub diameter tool.
With full size tool we hog with MOT, wearing down the center of the mirror and the
edge of the tool, when using subdiameter tool I have always used once less than
40% and some only 5% such as a cast iron pipe flange and that always with TOT
an no overhanging strokes for you don't want to wear the edge of the mirror, and
when you use a ring kind of tool as a 4" diamond or a 2" pipe cape you wil wear the
mirror center very nice, but a larger ring will have to move over the edge in order
to wear the center.
So if you have some old used tools like a 10" and work that with MOT you will wear
the center of the mirror before you match curvature, exectly what you want, but I
would not start with an flat tool on or under a new flat mirror blanc,
my 2 cents
