I too have had trouble finding a blank from wich to grind a 10" to 11" mirror. I have a source that can supply me with a blank that is 3/4" thick, but I believe I read somewhere that I would need a blank thicker than that. I can not seem to find anything in the 1" to 2" thick catagory that I can reasonably afford. The blank I can get will cost me aproxamatly $48.00 . If anyone can direct me to a place that sells the blank that I need I would appriciate it. Also, I would like to know if the 3/4" blank would work. I plan on making it into a 10" or 11" F6.
