Has anyone ever made a pitch lap while making a mirror out of 7/8th inch plate glass, i am wondering if i should be concerned about the glass breaking from the heat of the pitch when i go to shape the lap, is this a concern or is there no real problem..... i could make the pitch squares seperate and glue them to the lap if need be,been thinking about doing it that way, so tell me what you think..... I hope i am not to much of a bother, its beginer worrys, thats all, Thanks
