dont use profiling when you want to make nice curves.. it does a rubbish job of them :-(

What kind of setup do you have? As in mill, vice, parallels, etc..?

i put the jobs in a vice and normally use the cut out/ step down in the vice as a parallel. I have a small CNC mill

Well, to get it perfectly flat, you need a perfectly flat surface. Best way for that is to buy a really nice vice(brands do make a HUGE difference; my faves are Kurt and Parlec), then I'd suggest a nice set of parallels. That will get you a flat surface on which to place the block to be milled. Place the block on the parallels, which should be in the vice, then slowly tighten the vice to just barely tight. Tap it with a rubber mallet until neither parallel moves from underneath it when you try to slide the parallel. Tighten down more, check parallels again, tap with rubber mallet as necessary. That gets me into the .00005" tolerance range(5 ten-thousandths of one inch). I don't thing there is such a thing as "perfectly flat". There will always be a tiny bit of, well, un-perfectness(?).
