The LAAS is one of the older astronomy groups and while they may not have an active mirror grinding group right now, there are a lot of people in the group that have ground thier mirror and you can probably find somebody that has been a guiding light when mirrors were ground. You might want to stop by my website www.access1.net/bobmay and take a look at the way that mirrors are being done here in SDAA. Roger at THEASTROPAGES.COM also has a bit of info on the process. After that, there are a lot of websites out there that have mirror grinding and polishing.
BTW, the grinding is really very easy and after you have done your first, you will probably never go back.
I might note that if you want to keep the information on my website, you ought to save it to your own disk as I am having problems with ACCESS1 right now and the site may go away within the next month or so.
