Leigh, the dirty little secret is that boot canting is more for comfort
and bells n whistles than actual performance impovement.  If you
need canting, this needs to be done at the sole - some boots allow
this - or at the binding - some bindings don't.

Shop techs generally adjust cuff cants so that the knee is directly
over the boot.  There are various gadgets that do this.. some are
good enough to eyeball.  Another simple mechanism you could try
is a plumb bob.
