As said before, Nothing can beat a custom setup, But the lapping you did to that block is beautiful!

What did you lap it to? Did you start a lower grit and work your way up, Or just start at like 800+ and move your way up?

Because either way, Its lookin' good!
Yeah lapping was easier than I expected. I started with 600, then 800, 1000, 1500 and then used some Brasso metal polish with a lint free cloth to make it shine! I could have went to 2000, but figured that was probably overkill.

When I lapped, starting at around 1000 I added a small drop of dish soap to go with the water so that it would move smoothly across the paper and not "catch".

Thanks for the props
