    You could visually tell by staring down the sole when I started that it wasn't straight. Putting a straight edge across the sole and holding it up to the light makes it very obvious as well. I'll try...

    Sorry, all I'm trying to say is I don't need it to be as flat as your used to. Surface plates come in all different grades do they not? My granite tile is just a low low grade surface plate - it will...
