    Don't forget to season that big thing. You couldn't just run it under a mill and remove a couple thousandths?

    I have not laid a straight edge across it to see if that's feasible, hand steering the mill throught the oval turns,,,6" face mill,,,we'll see,, I have actual paying work getting in the way of the imprtnt things like this, but it'll get there. If I put it on the mill I'll take pics,,:lol3

    Is there a difference between flat milling cast iron and turning high tensile steel? Ida thought wiff your first hand experience youlda figured.

    Remember, chips not strings, strings is bad, especially with rotating stuff.

    Better yet; find the senior machinist in the shop and have him tell you how to do things. Am back on the lathes as of yesterday (fingers be damned...).

    way too much curve to try to mill it smooth, a straight edge from side to side reveals enough space to stand a dime in between.
    So,, I will continue to grind and sand and polish by hand until we have a usable pancake flippin surface and general grill area! Think of it as a broad shallow wok,,:lol3,,or a griddle,,witha sag in the middle of the griddle,,:rofl



    [​IMG]

    about a half inch at the sides,,deeper in the center..







    if you peed onnit,,you'd have a puddle of piddle in the middle of the griddle!:D

    i need a beer,,

    Last year someone brought a ton of mill ends to burn (bless their heart).
