    If you're building Jet Engines or the Mars Lander perhaps you need some amazing Surface Plate.

    Why a joke ?

    The raw material is the same.

    The machinery is the same.

    That's odd.

    I signed up five years ago, and had no problem at all.

    It was just like signing up for eBay.

    Well, that is interesting.

    It makes no sense that 1 2 3 4 would not have been stamped at all, but yes, they may have been stamped lightly.
