You can`t go wrong with WillBell. For the price of their kit you get TWO blanks (one the supposed tool). By using other methods to grind the initial curve and making a dental stone tool with hex-tile, you have enough materials to make two complete mirrors. Check Bob May`s site(just discussed here) he has an excellent tutorial on doing just this procedure. Or email me and I`ll send some sites I used to complete my 10" dob. I just finished a 6"f/11 this morning and it`s off to the coaters.
