Another way to make it more even is to get the diffuser closer to the negative. The less the center of the negative can 'see' of the edges of the diffuser, the better.

BTW there is a very cool 'doging' contact printer on e-bay. (item no. 150215888469) It has been listed for quite a few months but I couldn't get the guy to come down from $650. I thought this would be a great project to make the ultimate VC contact printer but wound up getting an 8x10 enlarger instead.
