That isn't a wrinkle. That's a huge great gaping crevasse with visible 
stratification and lava at the bottom. You might be better off using a 
micro or nano-itx machine as a rip for this, like they do with large 
format printers. It's not cheap though, especially because you will need 
a legitimate licence for windows on it.... although, thinking about it, 
win98 should be ok. You wouldn't *technically* be getting rid of the pc, 
but you would end up with a rip that is about 18cm x18cm, uses 30watts 
of electricity and has no moving parts.
