Well, Don came out an checked the surface plate, its within 45 millionths from high to low. So it is good for a grade B. I started scraping the rough cast camelback, I hit it with a facing mill and now I need to scrape it in. Making progress slowly. Tim

I finally made progress on one of my projects, I bought a box to mount the carbide diamond lap. Now its enclosed and all bolted together. I got the box from a freight salvage store for $12. Now I need to get a few more items for my Anderson Scraper and make a box to put my indicators in. I have an old snap-on tool box that I might use for the indicators...put them in foam and keep it portable. Tim

I got a sandvik scraper and 4 boxes of carbide inserts for 150.00. Now I need to compare how it scrapes to my Anderson. I am hoping for a biax someday to save on the back. Tim

Personnely, I prefer the Sandvik scrapers myself, it's all I've ever used. I have three of them and an assortment of carbide blades for them. I've got to make me a diamond lap like the above, that's a nice one!
