You still have the old probes with the narrow point on the end? The ones that were self contained and didn't have a separate reader? Huh

Does your probe look like the attached picture? With those old probes we measured to the tip of the drill bit.

The correct procedure for slabs on a pan is to measure the deepest part of the pan (bottom of flute) and drill to 40% at that point. If the pan were a maximum depth of 3", you'd drill 1.2" down over the deep flute.

What I like to do is find a plumber's or electrician's core and then measure right there, and place my probe about 2 feet away from the core hole. This way I know the depth of the concrete (it can vary several inches on a pan as the pan sags while placing concrete!) and I will know the location of the flutes.
