Nickle plated copper. The nickle is just for anti-corrosion.

Yes a CPU lap is a good idea. I have had one that was not flat at all, it took me a while before I realised that was the problem.

Any tips on where to get a good piece of straight glass and the sandpaper?

easypckits.com has good kits with all you need. glass, and lots of different grit paper... all for about $15. Its what i used on my IHS, and it blings! plus a ~6c drop in temps.

Found the place u just mentioned while i was floating around the web <img src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Big Grin" class="inlineimg" /> Sweet package, just what's needed and best of all I dont have to hunt all that crap down. Think I should lap my scythe ninja too? It looked pretty damn straight and had a good shiny finish.

Check around for an Auto Body/Paint store. You can get individual sheets of sand paper rather cheep. Unless you know an auto painter/bodyman who can hook you up <img src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Smile" class="inlineimg" />

I bought the lapping kit from that EasyPCKits, <a href="http://www.easypckits.com/products/hslkwg/" target="_blank">http://www.easypckits.com/products/hslkwg/</a> . 6 bucks gets you 7 sheets of the different grade paper, and a piece of glass. Worth it for me just in the time saved looking for this stuff. Last time I tried for the sandpaper I couldn't find any store in the city that carried any over 800 grit. Had to go out to the suburbs and hit Auto Barn.
