: After many years absense, I have the urge to grind my : own telescope mirrors again. I would like to start off : small, until I have mastered the technique. I would : appreciate it if anyone would be kind enough to tell : we where I can purchase 6" mirror blanks and the necessary : items to go with grinding it. Thanks. Larry

Try Willmann Bell Inc. (800 825 STAR) they have the entire kit at a reasonable price. I think I paid about $60 for the two full thickness blanks plus all of the grinding and polishing materials. Good luck, Lon Navis
