Thought about old Archimedes and my lab lever scale too. But I was not sure about that holding devise. Most probably one has to do 4 measurements, two for that device and two for the device with the lens attached.
I was thinking that I had been written everything cover colors of imaging technology. There are even more. Wet etching is the same class technology with magnetorheological finishing but it does not require to be electrical engineer for to design magnets and need of cleaning expensive magnetic liquids.
Hydrofluoric acid is the enemy of glass and it melts the glass. Same kind of chemicals and creating a wet point on the glass can make your lens.
Well , it is my part to put the news in front of you , your part is to realize it.

Hydrofluoric acid, that is very nasty stuff. I would not want that around my house. If you are not careful you could lose fingers, skin, and/or much more.
It's not the camera......
Freygr , do you know more friendly chemical for to etch the glass ?
Here is the list of patents about magnetorheological finishing.No 27 and 26 is so detailed and i beleive someone who has strong will - like me - can make a mrf machine. I think it is an russian invention and came to usa with cold war ways. If you search with numbers , here is the link.
Agx I think you interest with it , i m dreaming to carve a flat piece of glass ... phwww...
