How many leveling points are at the seam of the slate with the pictured leveling system?
I see where you're going with this, and I agree. If the concept of the leveler itself works, I think that is fine. But, the placement is a bit off, and there should be more locations than what they currently have. There is nothing in the center of each slate, so there is no way to address sag (which will occur). Also, only having one location at the center of the seam does not allow for much adjustment at all.

This design would be fine, if slates were always perfectly flat (and stayed that way). However, the effects of gravity will always come into play.
