    Nice Pick! I like the thickness of the base. It will make it heavy but much more stable I have a 6' in the shop but the base is about 1/2" thick. It is not the most stable for me.

    I think you would be better off to remove the spring steel strip, remove the ways and have them sent out to be ground.

    Seems discussing 2 things here??

    Flaking on a straightedge- seems pretty useless to me. Messes up your point contact.

    Flaking on a machine tool way- moving surface only.

    Stable?? Try grinding this stuff when it is 3" x 3" x 144" long and the customer wants it flat within .010".

    My guess is much smaller sections are nice to machine/grind?

    You will want a wheel of the softer side, so lets say like a 46 grit H or so.

    My cost for wheels is pretty good as I get special pricing due to the quantity I buy. I think a normal price from suppliers would be around $1,200 to $1,500 per wheel.

    Thanks for keeping up on IG.
